Are you in need of some encouragement today? I sure was at the time I read this blog post this morning. After four and a half years of unemployment with still no end in sight, I feel like I’ve been living in a lion’s den or a fiery furnace as a semi-permanent place of residence!!! I sooooooo want it to end!!!
I especially liked a quote near the end of this post from a woman who wrote:
Lord, I’m drowning in a sea of perplexity.
Waves of confusion crash over me.
I’m too weak to shout for help.
Either quiet the waves, or lift me above them–
It’s too late to learn to swim.
While I’ve learned a whole lot during this very long time of living in the “Valley of Unemployment” (e.g., lion’s den, fiery furnace, and everything in between), I feel just like the woman who wrote that short prayer and I totally agree with her when she ended it by saying: “It’s too late to learn to swim.” (Well actually, I already know how to swim.) So, if you’ve reached the same place as I have (whatever your particular circumstances may be), read this blog post for some much needed encouragement!!!
