Just got my new copy of "Voice of the Martyrs" yesterday. And while I don't normally scan and post articles from it, I felt it appropriate. I'll let it apply to your life as the Lord leads.
I've been out of work for the better part of five months. I might have a peer-level interview at a local hospital in a week or so but even if that happens, there is of course no guarantee of a job. Meantime, I've got one "employer" who "isn't able" to give me hours. And, you know, you start to feel sorry for yourself.
Then you get a reminder of just how well we really have it here.
I'd recommend you give this article a read. And let it be much food for thought.
