Surviving Unemployment III

  1. Stay Positive.

Positivity is contagious.  Positivity attracts positive circumstances. Negativity repels that which is good and attracts negative circumstances.  No one wants to be around a negative, complaining, pessimistic person without any hope for the future.  I know some may call it reality.  That is not reality.  Reality is what you create.  God gave us all the ability to create, change or rearrange our environments.  The power is in your mouth.  Speak only those things you really want to happen; the good things.  Pray often, spend time with God, meditate on His word.  Remember Jesus died for you.  Therefore, there is no good thing, God would withhold from you, even a job.

Make positive affirmations based on scripture to speak out loud and meditate on daily. For example, "My God supplies my each and every need. There is no lack in my life"(Philippians 4:19).  "My God directs my every step, shows me where to go and teaches me how to profit " (Isaiah 48:17).

  1. Ask for Wisdom

Above all, ask God for wisdom and direction, daily.  Pray to always recognize His voice and ask him to show Himself to you daily. Thank Him for the sufficiency found in each day.

Unemployment was one of the hardest times of my life.  But, it was also exciting, I learned a lot.  I survived and began to thrive in life.  I discovered and used the gifts God placed inside of me.  I learned first hand how to trust in Him and hear from Him.  Honestly, I think it was one of the best things that could have happened to me.  If you are currently unemployed, I encourage you to spend time with God and allow Him to show you His desires for you life.
