    I'm not exactly sure what to ask, or how to ask it...

    I just got off the phone with the Department of Employment Security after spending an hour on hold. My claim had run out and I needed to file for an extension. The lady asked me about what money I had made outside of my unemployment benefits (severance package and pension payout). I wasn't sure of the amounts, and the lady said, "We don't show any record of a pension payout. You will have to call back. We may have overpaid you."

    My unemployment benefits are our only source of income right now. Through the grace and provision of God we haven't missed a house payment or been late on our bills even though they total more than what I draw. I know God can and will take care of us... but I am scared and extremely worried about this.

    It seems no one wants to hire a fat 40+ year old man. I have applied to some many places. I have had a couple of glimmers along the way, but none have panned out so far. I know God has something in store for me... I just wish I knew what, where, and when.

    Please pray for me and my family. Ask God to lead us through this mess and bring us through the other side. I know His plan is best and I am trying hard not to second guess Him... but it is really hard right now.

    Amen and Ditto!

    Dear Lord, Our Brother Trotter needs Your help to provide his needs.
    Hopefully,this lady whom Trotter spoke with on the phone from the Department of Employment Security could have gotten the wrong information. Please if this
    is not true that You will provide. We KNOW that You will keep Your promise
    to supply ALL of his jobs! In Jesus' Name. Amen.

    Thank you for the prayers.

    I gathered up my information last night and fought my way back through the automated phone system. I finally got to speak to someone. Her name was Natalie, and she was a gift straight from God. She went through her info, asked me a few questions, and took care of everything. She didn't need any additional information and had no idea what the other woman's problem was other than it was the end of the day and she didn't want to be stuck wading through a claim.

    I still don't have a job, but at least this major problem has been dealt with. Thank you, Lord, for caring about every detail.

    Thanks, all. I'm praying , too... as well as looking and applying. :D It's a lot easier for God to make a change of direction in a moving object than for Him to have to put that object in motion to begin with. Well, not really harder for God, but you get the idea. ;)

    Thanks, all. I am still looking, but my wife is starting a 4-6 week assignment today. They have already sent back one temp who couldn't get the hang of the online purchasing part, but my wife has done that before. She's still nervous, but I am praying for her.
