Test from God...Pass or Fail?
Organized by: Leticia Salazar
I was on track with my 10 year plan and then it started pouring. I had a good job, money in my savings account, a roof over my head, money to eat, all the important things to me. Then after 29 years of good luck and smart planning everything changed. I lost my job due to the company I was working for making cuts to save money. Where I was living the situation wasn't the greatest, let me correct myself, wasn't the healthiest for myself or my plans for my daughter and I's future. Unfortunately, one day due to my roommates problem with consuming copious amounts of alcohol, I found myself homeless due to a disagreement (I couldn't hold my tounge anymore). Because I had been smart with my money for so long I was able to get into a hotel. I paid to live there for 2 months; not cheap what so ever, but doable and a quick resolve to the problem. I was able to look for a job, buy food, eat, pay my bills, car payment, car insurance, cell phone, student loans, etc. Unfortunately, a month ago those funds depleted and I have yet to find a job, am now living in my car, sneaking into into a into a local into a local gym to shower, and doing whatever little odd jobs I can for money to eat. I'm at a breaking point and don't know how much longer I will be able to last!!! So I'm sucking up my pride and reaching out to the unknown, strangers, hoping that someone out there still has a heart and will help. Help can be in many different ways it doesn't always have to be monetary. If monetary is how you can help; awesome, but there are other ways as well. Gift cards for for and gas, which, can be sent virtually. If you happen to be a rewards member of a hotel and have points you may never use and would like to so kindly donate them to have a bed to sleep in for the night. If you know of any jobs in my area or at home positions, maybe giving me some information. Any little thing helps! Beggers can't be choosers and I don't like to call it begging, but sometimes you do what you have to and right now I'm doing what I can. I'd rather beg and or ask for help than do something wrong and get myself into trouble that could potentially ruin my future. God is truly testing me and I'm not quite sure why, but some days I feel as if I'm winning and some days as if I'm not. In the end thought I know no matter what, with help or without, I will have learned some valuable lessons, have become a stronger me, discover new strengths and weaknesses within myself, look at life in a different way, not misjudged, sterotype people, or take there actions or attitude towards me the wrong way, I will know that I don't know what that person is going through, has gone through, or will ever go through. Above all I will know if and when I get through this I passed God's test. Thank yall for listening to my story, helping, and or even just praying for me. In advance I'd like to thank yall from the bottom of my heart. God bless!
