Ask for Help

I hate this, but sometimes we need to ask for help. Maybe from a family member, a friend, or even the government. I know asking for financial help seems irresponsible on some level, but sometimes we need others. You may need to ask someone close to you for a loan that you can pay back after you are out of crisis. If you are a person of integrity, such vulnerability will be met with empathy and kindness.

This Too Shall Pass

The old adage, “This too shall pass” is true. Hang in there doing what I describe above and your season of lack and joblessness will eventually pass. Hang onto that and keep keeping on. The Hebrew writer said it this way: “And now I want each of you to extend that same intensity toward a full-bodied hope, and keep at it till the finish. Don't drag your feet. Be like those who stay the course with committed faith and then get everything promised to them” (Heb. 6:11-12 MSG).  

Remember, this too shall pass. God will see to it that it does.
