Request for Prayer/Job troubles
Please pray for me brethren. I still have my lawn business as well as still working for the park we live in, but management has changed back to the owners parents (both past 80 yrs.) and not only are they slipping mentally, but both are highly unstable, double minded reprobates whose god is mammon. It gets worse by the day as they become more and more addicted to money. Every bit of money that goes into the front office leaves to finance some housing edition their son is building in another city and nothing is coming back in for repairs, etc. I was just told today that we really need to get more efficient with how we get things done here in regards to repair, cleaning etc. but the overriding reason for our gross inefficiency is due to them and their new manager having us bouncing around like yo-yo's from one thing to the next without finishing the last thing, and then we get reprimanded for not completing the previous thing. Forget trying to explain any of this because they won't hear it and don't care. She is a malignant narcissistic woman that can do no wrong, and while her husband is more "gentle hearted" he forgets most things easily unless reminded continually, but he always defers to his wife in most matters so the point is moot. I type this while on my lunch break, but I will have to be going into a home across the street soon to clean that is infested with black, fuzzy white, and green molds to "clean". I thank The Lord Jesus He blessed me with a respirator, it helps quite a bit, but some mold spores manage to make it past the mask seal due to my beard. I would quit, but that issue is made more difficult by the fact that there is some supposed company policy that employees that live here in the park and quit are no longe allowed to live on the premises. I work for the Kiritsis family if anyone is interested, some of you may have even heard of this family. They are professing "christians" that hold to Greek Orthodoxy so in reality they are catholics. I feel like I am stuck between a rock and a hard place as it were because I have yet to get the trailer for my business so I can just go back to that, though leaving working here but not "quitting" as it were, but now I find myself in need of serious transmission repair for my truck in order to reliably pull the trailer once we get it here hopefully this month so I can continue to provide for my family without having to continue to work for these vile reprobates that I work for. It is their circus and I will continue to do as asked insofar as it does not contradict the word or morality, and so long as I am paid for my efforts, but I am really hoping to very quickly see a light at the end of this valley of trials. Please pray for me and my family brethren in regards to these matters. I just had my truck picked up by "Edwards Transmissions" so they can do a full diagnostic including dropping the pan, etc. They picked it up and will bring it back, all to the tune of $109. This should give me a much better idea of my options so I can decide if I just want to buy a used transmission and replace it myself or pay to have the current one rebuilt. This matter is made worse however because after explaining this to my wife I was attacked for my supposed stupidity for wanting a second opinion (I am not a transmission expert, nor do I know anything about them) and I was willing to shell out the funds to be given a second opinion. Everyday makes me want to go home even more, and just when it seems like I got a handle on something and I have a fair bit of peace, something like this comes along and blindsides me. With the help of The Lord Jesus I will continue to stand, but I sure could use the prayers of the saints on this one. Thank you in advance brethren.
I'll be praying, that sounds tough brother, but I know the Lord is using that to mold you to be used for his purposes.
"But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand." - Isa. 64:8
"And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us." Rom. 5:3-5
I'm with you 100% on going home. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
Will definitely be praying for you brother Landau. Brethren, I ask that you keep me in prayer as well. I have always had a rough time finding work and have been working through Labor Finders, a day laborer dispatch company, for the last 3-4 weeks. The pay is low, but I have food and raiment praise the Lord! Most of the jobs are in the sun and I'm of French/Irish descent; therefore I burn not tan. I've been trying to get into an apprenticeship program, any kind of warehouse job, or really anything (preferably full time) that has potential to be promoted or pays a little better. Thanks in advance and may the Lord Jesus Christ bless you abundantly.
