For 2 years I felt God was calling me to quit my job. I did not listen because it was an excellent job and I was helping sick children. 13 months ago I ended up being forced to quit due to a severe medical problem. In a way I thought it was an extra nudge from God to push me into whatever He wanted me to do. I spent a year seeking medical treatment throughout the US, and received no answers and no cure. I am still struggling with my health but right now I am somewhat in remission.
I have been unemployed for 1 year now, and my savings are dwindling fast. During that time I tried to explore other career options in case I needed a back up plan due to my medical issues, and took some tech/computer classes which I was horrible at, and clearly not what I am meant to do. I have been actively looking for employment the past 7 months, and am not able to find or get offered a job. I’ve only been able to get a couple of temp things here and there. I have a lot of experience and was head of my previous department.
A new job was posted that was my exact previous position and paid well. I prayed the Undoer of Knots Rosary novena, Novena of Surrender, Sacred Heart Novena, Novenas to St. Joseph, St. Cajetan, St. Anthony, St. Expeditus, and St. Jude. I’ve also prayed in front of the Blessed Sacrament multiple times and gone to church multiple times a week. I listen to EWTN all day long when I am home. I’ve tried contacting multiple priests and spiritual directors and either get no response or told to contact someone else. I am truly trying to seek and hear God’s will for me.
I did not get the job I was hoping to get. I’ve also applied and called at least 50 other jobs. I’ve reached out to others to try to network. Nothing is coming through. I have no family support and no reliable friends for this sort of thing.
I feel no calling to any direction in my life and with no offers for employment I am getting scared. What else can I do?
