I forgot about this thread!!
Thank you guys soo much for all of the prayers and everything you guys do on a daily basis to fight the Good fight. I really pray God blesses everyone who had a prayer and positive thought on my behalf. I love you all!
I got a new job in 09/12 and it was not only more money, but it was also in a field that I was trying hard to get in- hotel industry/hospitality. I have progressed here and I am thankful for everything I am learning and especially the people I'm meeting! (Sometimes celebs stay at my job!
I act/model and eventually want to work in the entertainment industry in some capacity behind the scenes, so you never know what opportunities may arise from that, but I know discernment is a MUST). So the job thing is going well, I am very grateful!
As for my place, we did end up getting evicted a few months later
We tried... but there was a lack of unity in the home and people playing with their share of the rent and it just couldn't come together. We got another place and things went south there too because of the same reasons. So we got yet another place, which is where we are now and I'm in a financial position to be able to kind of pick up the slack when people are short (thank You Lord), but y'all, it's weighing on me. One of my relatives that I live with owes me over a $1000 at this point because of constantly not having their portion of the rent. I keep telling myself that I should move with roommates, but I really do not want to move with strangers.
I keep praying for my family and I have witnessed to them about the power of tithing and I help them to try and find a better job (more hours and/or more money). I want to believe that their heart is good and that they are trying, but sometimes I have to look at the actions. This relative in particular has came to my church and is saved and has just recently received the Spirit, so I know God is going to begin to change them, so I'm trying to nurture the growing relationship with the Lord and not place so much emphasis on "Where's my money??" But I would be lying if I said I don't ever think about it.
Well ladies and gents, please keep my family in prayer. Especially the one who recently received the Promise- pray that his relationship with Christ grows stronger and he becomes a blessing in this household so that he can one day be able to be the man of God over his own household in the future. And I have another relative battling addiction and I'm just believing God for her total deliverance in the name of Jesus, and not only because of the financial issues, but because I genuinely want to see her clean and sober for good, no more teeter tottering. Since there is another relative in my home and I don't want to leave him out of the prayer circle- I usually pray for him to forgive and to be less prideful, because I know these are the main hindrances to his blessings .
I'm praying to grow spiritually and to be a good steward over what God has given me and do well this semester in school.
