Life’s a Struggle but God is Not

 

I’m struggling again. Struggling to find things to write about, struggling with my confidence, struggling with life in general.

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on us and swiping our feet out from under us. We struggle to get back up and that’s just where Satan wants us.

But our God is bigger than our struggles. He’s always there with us, through the struggles, through the frustration and through the doubts.

We need to keep clinging to Him because only He can get us through these rough times in our lives.


I’ve been out of work for 3 years now due to my health problems. I have been denied social security disability 3 times now.

I am left with no other choice: I must find a way to start working again. I honestly don’t know how I’m going to do it, my body is failing but I know God is with me through all of this. And I know He has a plan for me.

Yesterday I decided to go to the mall and visit Barnes and Noble, the store I was working at until I had to quit. I ran into a manager who I worked with and half jokingly she asked me if I could work Sunday. We laughed and then I asked her if they were actually hiring and she said “YES! Go see Lindsey! (another manager)

I wrestled with whether or not I should go see her but in the end I decided to give it a try. So I found Lindsey and she told me to put in my application and she would call me in to “interview” me (meaning she wasn’t going to actually interview me but would just find out when I was available and would put me on the schedule.)

So now I’m waiting on that phone call or email to find out if I’m really going to start working there again.

I’m scared. What if I can’t do it? What if my health starts getting in the way again?

But my God is bigger than all my worries. He’s definitely got this in control even though I feel out of control.

So don’t worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

Matthew 6:34 NLT

  1. I’m praying for you sister. I’m going through the same thing. I have been unemployed due to Celiac Disease since 1-6-12. They do not give disability for Celiac here in Colorado or anywhere else for that matter because Celiac is still persecuted & many doctors are arrogant about it and they don’t even think it’s a real disease. That is how arrogant and ignorant our American doctors are. The disease is well known in Europe and it almost killed me, but no it’s not a real disease. I forgive the doctors, but they are arrogant and they need to repent. Most of them are just arrogant greedy narcissists that could care less. I used to make good money and I was very physically athletic and in shape. Celiac took all of that and more. Praise God for this open door He has given you. I recommend being up front and honest with the people you work for. They will understand and God will bless it. Just let them know what’s going on and that you might not be able to work at times. I’m sure they can put you on some kind of flexible schedule. God bless you!

    1. I’m so sorry to hear about your celiac disease. I don’t know much about it but I know it can be disabling.
      I suffer from fibromyalgia and bipolar disorder.
      Barnes and Noble is very much aware of my health issues and I know they will work with me. 🙂

  2. What wonderful news! God has been training you for this time! When God leads and opens the door, He will also enable you to walk through it and follow Him. May I suggest reading the last half of Isaiah 26:12 in all the different translations of your Bible app? I did it the other day, and it was eye-opening. Praying for you.
