I’m having a stressful time right now. I have been unemployed for nearly a year and a half and have been unable to find anything, despite sending out numerous applications and resumes. I feel like a failure and a burden, because I still live with my parents at the age of 31 and am completely broke (my unemployment benefits ran out at the end of May.)
I find myself feeling so sad and useless, like there’s no point in even getting out of bed in the morning. I hate not being able to provide for myself and the situation, without getting into too much detail, is getting desperate. I don’t know what to do except pray at this point, but it doesn’t seem like God is listening. I keep trying to have faith that things will get better, but it’s been so long and I can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel anymore.
If someone could please pray for me – whatever prayer you like best – I’d really appreciate it. I’ve been praying myself, but as I said, it doesn’t seem to be having much effect up to this point. Maybe the prayers of other people would help, and they certainly couldn’t hurt.
I just wish I didn’t feel so useless.
