How do you remain patient when it seems as if everyone else is being blessed but you?


There are several things that I've been praying about but at the top of my list, a new job. I know that the economy is bad but many of my friends have landed the job of their dreams while I'm still waiting on God. I trust that God has something better for me but how do I remain patient in the waiting room when it seems as if my name will never be called.

    Awww... Bless your spirit. You know exactly what I mean then MareleneB. I have had the same thoughts as I feel that my entire adult life has been a struggle. I guess at the end of the day we just have to continue believing and trusting God.

    Hum...U have me thinking. I can relate to searching for unconfessed sin because at times I wonder if Im being punished, yet not talking to him about earthly affairs is unimaginable. He's my best friend so I talk to him about everything. :-(

    Bobmonger... Great point "praise God in all things." Yes indeed I will because I know that he'll work it ALL out for my good.

    Indeed, you are correct. I understand that I am blessed to even have the essentials but I don't see any harm in having goals and being ambitious either. You know??? I supppose I am learning to be content in any state.

    Most of the time the thing you want the most will not be given to you, unless you stop wanting it. If you get it you'll forget him. And all this striving is just a symptom of your focus not being on him alone. Your reward is in heaven, not here.
