    My wife and I both lost our jobs this year. My wife lost hers in December, and I lost mine in May. I started a business last year, and have been waiting for two deals to close, one which is tied up in court. I don't know when the other one will close. My wife's unemployment expires in two weeks, and I have not been able to receive unemployment benefits yet due to a workplace injury I had 3 years ago. In 3 weeks we will both be without jobs and no income, with around 4 - 6 months of savings left with 2 little ones.

    Please pray for wisdom and comfort. It is hard to let go sometimes and "let God". Scripture tells us to not worry about anything, but pray about everything, so I'm asking my brothers and sisters in Christ to join in with me as I try to do just that. Thanks in advance :)

    Just wanted to give an update (praise, actually). My wife's unemployment benefits ran out this week. Just this past July an additional 13 weeks were written into the law to those who's benefits expire (great timing). When my wife called yesterday, she was told it can take 4 weeks to process this extension. Well, she received an email today stating it had been approved already. Praise God!

    My unemployment benefits just started this week, too, so we have some breathing room before God provides either myself or my wife with employment. In addition, a business deal I have been waiting on to close is supposed to be starting to pay this Friday until the full amount can be paid in one lump sum. I want to thank everyone for their prayers, they have made a difference! Please continue to pray for whatever God would have from us, either employment for one or both of us, or this deal to finally close where both my wife and I will not need to work.

    He truly is Johovah Jira (our God provides)! :godisgood:
