Surrounded and drowning...

I feel surrounded..... I feel like I'm being swarmed by satan and his demons.... suffocated..... I lost my job and was in a wreck. I cant seem to get any luck getting a new job. My family keeps pushing me....suffocating me to get another job.... the medical bills are starting to pile in. I have no money to pay the bills or anything else. Life is suffocating me. I cant breathe......

You mentioned Satan and his demons, you are probably right. Keep your faith in GOD and he will see you thru. It is not in your time, it is in His time. I have lived thru this before and going thru it now as well. Do not let the evil one push you over the edge, just know that Jesus is behind you waiting for you to ask Him to take over. Once you do that, let go and let Him. Don't try to help, He doesn't need your help. All he needs is your faith. My prayers are with you as well.

Im in the exact same situation...I lost my job 7 months ago, tried re-inventing myself with a course and certification, I have applied to 100's of jobs and still and nothing... money I have received from my severance pay is now gone. I pray...and pray. I feel the exact same way, can't breathe, eat or sleep. I hope things will get better for you, Arianna.

I am also in the same situation. I believe if you pray and be grateful for what you have right now, you will have a breakthrough! I work in the Fragrance Industry. I was the Business Manager of a Perfume company at a famous Department Store on Fifth Avenue in New York for 13 years and the Fragrance Buyer wanted to meet with my company's Head CEO because the store wanted us to spend more money on advertising and promotions and pay for a share in the renovation of the store. My company was trying to fire the CEO in the Fragrance Division, so he never gave the Head CEO the message! Since no one from my company showed up for the meeting 3 times, my company was asked to leave the store; which meant that I lost my job and my Account Executive lost hers. The Department Store never told us (the little people) about the meeting so that I could properly relay it to the Account Executive so that she could give the message to the Head CEO. I was over 30% up in sales for the quarter. This happened in 2012 and I can only find freelance work a few days here and there for other companies. Most everyone in this industry now is unprofessional and they "jump" on customers when they enter the department stores. Most of my former customers now buy online. They don't want to hear "Mommy, Mommy come buy from me"! My favorite one is "Yo, Yo my N-word, Check it out! and have attitudes depending on what Department store or place you are in. The point is: No matter how old you are, go back to school, try to network with other people and go to Job Fairs. Every company needs a Notary Public, so get your license. Go to the library and research new jobs that might interest you and get the study guide to take the tests. Go on Youtube and look at tutorials on how to use Excel, for example. Get Business Cards with your information and pass them out to people in the position to help you get a job! Don't let your family members or friends put you down! And if you do get a job, be smart and don't teach your years of experience job skills to a younger employee! I am still looking for the right company to work for and I have over 30 years in this industry. I understand they are looking for younger inexperienced people to pay less money. Don't ever get discouraged! You might have filled out 100 applications but it will be your 101 application that gets you the job.

Take care

Hi i can see that you know about the lord. And there are times when we are going to be tested and the reason why i say this is because if you read your bible you should know what job went through. GOD didn't promise us a bed of roses like the ole saying no PAIN NO GAIN. and the reason why i say is because i've been through so much myself to where i should have been dead but GOD decided that i wasn't fit to die right Oh!!! yes didn't my burdens get heavy cried day and night and waited on the lord and trust he brought me out i am a living witness and a testimony to what GOD can and will do the like David said weaping may endure for a night but joy commeth in the morning. and what god is doing is molding and remaking his people for his kingdom. He is preparing us to take his children home. And trust me GOD Hasn't forgotten about you like the bible says WHERE IS YOUR FAITH . AND IF YOU HAD THE FAITH OF A GRAIN OF A MUSTARD SEED YOU CAN TELL THAT MOUNTAIN BE THOU REMOVED. AND DON'T YOU KNOW HOW TINY A MUSTARD SEED IS GOD JUST WANT YOU TO HAVE THAT MUCH FAITH AND YOU CAN MOVE THESE OBSTACLES THAT ARE HINDERING YOU IN YOUR LIFE. KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE LORD AND NOT YOUR PROBLEM GOD HAS YOUR BACK GOD DON'T LIE THE FAILURE IS NOT IN HIM BUT US. AND NO MATTER WHAT YOU GO THROUGH GET UP EVERY MORNING AND THANK GOD AND LET HIM KNOW THAT YOU ARE GOING TO TRUST HIM TAKE THIS STEP DAY BY DAY AND YOU WATCH GOD MOVE ON YOUR BEHALF . AND THE REASON I SAY WHAT I SAY IS BECAUSE I 'VE BEEN THROUGH THAT AND DONE IT. DON'T LET SATAN SEE YOU SWEAT BECAUSE IF YOU DO HE THINKS THAT HE GOT YOU GOD IS GREATER THAN WHAT SATAN CAN DO. START PRAISING GOD AND GIVING HIM THANKS FOR WHAT HE'S DONE AND FOR WHAT HE'S GOING TO DO IN YOUR LIFE PRAISES GOING UP BLESSING COMING DOWN.

AND I DO WISH YOU THE BEST STAY ENCOURAGE ITS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT GOD BLESS.
