I don't really like the job I am working for and when I'm not working at it I'm constantly thinking about it and that takes away the joy of enjoying the things God has given me to enjoy. Pray God would help me to live in the present and not to worry or think about my job. Pray I would have strength for my job because I have to get up at 4:30 4 days a week.

It's partly because we're actually moving in a couple weeks so I'm excited to move and find a new job and rest for a while, and then I think about how close yet how far away we are from moving. The worst part is that some days or even parts of the day I enjoy everything and then other times I feel burdened again. Thanks for always being here for me NoName!

anytime Devin.... youre honestly a wonderful example of a brother in Christ


ahhhhhhh moving soon
.... and you have to wake up early
now i see what you mean

that time off is so close but so far


well i have to wake up very early for work too man....
i feel your pain

maybe make a point to sleep early for these next few weeks on work nights to just make the mornings go by smoothly

it will be over before you know it

and youll be glad to have done your best on your time off man

you will appreciate it that much more if you stick this out

(and have more money i bet)

Yes, I know God is helping me to grow through this time of suffering and I will be glad I took this job when it is all said and done. I will have a lot more money as well!

Man that stinks. Its hard having to do things you don't want to do in order to have money, just remember in the long run, do the things that make you happy as long as its God's will, and if God's will doesn't necessarily make you happy, try to find the joy in little things here and there, Good tasting coffee in the morning, beautiful weather, Etc., just keep an eye out for small mercies.

I decided I'm gonna focus on one section of the day at a time. Like right now, I'm going to focus on from when I just finished lunch now, until supper time. Focus on enjoying the things God puts in that section of time. I also have work late this afternoon. I usually work in the morning but I'm filling in for somebody in the afternoon. Thanks NoName!
