HELLO MY NAME IS BY MATTHEW WEST
Hello, Prayer Warriors.
I am asking that y'all join me in prayer for direction, peace, understanding, and patience. I've once again bitten off more than I can chew as I am working full time, going to school, raising two home-schooled children, and trying to be the wife my husband can depend on. I've been working for 5 years (as of 2/19) at a low-end job with virtually no benefits. Please don't get me wrong, I know I am blessed to even have a job in this economy, but the lack of vacation time & sick time that is offered to me has put more strain on my family than my boss realizes (ex. 1 week vacation after working for 2 yrs, 2 wks vacation after working 5, 3 sick days per yr, no PTO's, etc). I spend more time away than I do at home and I only took the job to keep our house which we've lost anyway. We currently live with my parents and aside from some nit-picky drama, things are going well, but I am still missing out on so much. I want to tell my boss that I'm done, I quit, but at the same time we have debt that needs to be paid off and my educational expenses which are currently paid from my personal expense account at work. Because of these things, I fear we can't afford for me to quit. Then again, I think that if I do leave, it will open up a position to someone may need it more than myself. Please, keep us lifted in prayer and that I (we) will be able to recognize God's plan/will for us during this time. I can't deal with the stress and the anxiety much longer.
Thank you, all!
