Well, I just got the shock of a lifetime. I was fired from my job today that I've worked at for the last (just a few days shy of) 6 years. I'm feeling really lost because we just bought a house, our wedding is less than 2 months away and I'm lost. I'm working hard right now to get my resume out there to see what I can find, at this point with the wedding fast approaching I'll take just about anything.

Please say a prayer that God puts his hand on my shoulder and gives me the push I need.

So sorry, Nicole. That is a tough day. I hope you are able to quickly find a job! My thoughts are with you.

Oh NO...that had to be a shock of a lifetime. It sounds as if you had no idea it was coming. I've seen many of these types of shocks turn out to be the opening of bigger doors! Good Luck in your new job. I'm sure you will find it.

Nichole, I'm so sorry. I have been there myself. Have faith and trust that God will open bigger and better doors for you that no man can close. I will keep you in my prayers. Remember, their loss.

Thank you all for the kind words, it was a total shock. I know everything happens for a reason and God won't let me down but it's sure hard right now with everything I've got going on. My Buddy and Bailey have been glued to my side ever since I walked in the door. They know I'm upset and want to help. I just keep praying that I am not to stubborn or blind to see what God is leading me to.

I'm sorry. There never is a good time to be layed off, but right before your wedding? Don't they have a heart? I can't help but think new things are on your horizon. Keep the positive attitude. We're pulling for you!

I am so sorry that this has happened, and what bad timing, but like others have said. There is a plan that God has for us, and this could be a blessing in disguise. Get your resume out there, we will pray and you will find a new opportunity to shine.

Thank you everyone again for all the replies, thoughts and prayers! They are greatly appreciated. It's hard to always "let go and let God" but I'm trying. I've already applied for over a dozen jobs and interviewed with 2 different employment agencies so hopefully I'll hear something.

I did get good news that I can at least some unemployment so that will help us to make things keep moving forward here at home. So God is working but at his pace not mine (I need to learn to stop being so impatient!). Thank you again and I'll keep you all posted as things move on.

I just wanted to take a minute and say thank you to everyone who said a prayer, a kind word or thought for me! I know when I posted this 2 months ago I was feeling like I was at a very low point in my life. Since then I've married the man of my dreams and we are approaching our 1 month anniversary and as of today, I have a new job! :YAY

The funny thing is that I actually got 3 phone calls this afternoon for positions that are open and that I qualify for. I've accepted the one that is with a bank (since I've worked in the banking industry for the last 6 years) and it'll be a steady 8-5 job. I'm so very grateful for all the support I've gotten on here. It actually brings a tear to my eyes because I feel like I have so many wonderful friends on here and yet I've never met any of you face to face. I am truly blessed to have found this forum and the amazing people on here!

Congratulations. You know is difficult to understand some events and we just have to trust God. You see one door closed and three windows opened. I am glad you were able to find something that suit you. Maybe you needed this time to get your marriage going and everything settle down, who knows. Good luck in your new job. :YAY

:TYou
I truly appreciate all of the well wishes and more importantly the prayers! I've been put back a few days for starting the new job, due to the name change my background check is taking longer than normal. :roll But I know it's ok and that things will be back to normal.
