I currently became unemployed because my construction company I work for has no projects at this time.
So now, on top of having no electricity because of the hurricane Friday, I am going to have to collect unemployment, and job hunt because I don't think I'm going to get called back anytime soon.
I'm just waiting for someone to say to me something like "maybe that's god trying to tell you to come back to his herd".
Well you certainly won't get the herd call from me. I'm an old fart but I can tell you from personal experience that the skills you have acquired so far in life plus your own self confidence will pull you through! There is nothing wrong with picking up trash until "the man or lady" realizes that you may be able to paint the fence or fix the doorknob! Since you were in the construction industry, use whatever skills you have to start over. It is not easy especially with a family. Most importantly BE HONRST! With "Word of mouth" referrals I went from stamping "for sale" signs at intersections @ $5 per hour to general contractor and never posted an ad. Its not easy or pleasant but it is survival and that is the bottom line!
People have to do what they have to do.
I don’t hold religion against a person unless the farce is strong in them, then I lose patience over their childish crap.
But if you’re scared and alone and desperately need help I’d never hold it against a person for giving religion a hard chance, what could it hurt.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t go to desperation Jesus anymore because experience tells me it’s useless, but I had to learn myself and I imagine everyone else does too.
Not sure if its possible for you, but would you have more oppourtinity in Dallas or Houston or a big city? Construction seems live and well in those cities. Just the other day I was thinking I can't drive more than 5 mins before seeing some kind of construction work, mostly road, but buldings too...
That said, I don't know much about construction jobs and the realities of the job market.
Wait, something doesn't add up here.
"I currently became unemployed because my construction company I work for has no projects at this time. So now, on top of having no electricity because of the hurricane Friday..."
What kind of construction company would have no work following a hurricane? Maybe it's time to find another construction company?
Strangely this is how believers think. Merle Haggard once had a song in which he sang "momma used to pray that my crops would fail." Think a minute and here is a religious woman praying her son will lose his crops so that he will come back to the Lord. Plain out pitiful crap.
Beyond that above I'm sorry to hear of your bad news and wish you the best. Stay positive.
Sorry to hear that brother, stay up.
I wonder how big a dick God must be...to have to kill 220,000 Americans alone, in order to get someone to come back to his flock through a ripple effect of lost wage, layoffs, natural disasters ....Not sure thats a flock I'd want to return to. A simple "No" would have done fine
