The Lord Is My Shepherd

I shall not want.

Although I may be kinda pinched.

I found out today that my corporate employers are getting rid of people, and unfortunately I’m one of the lucky winners. On the bright side: I’ve got two more months before they let me go entirely, I’m going to get a fairly large chunk of severance pay, I’m not in debt, I’ve got my health, I can call on my parents if I really need help later on, and in short I’m not in a horrible position for somebody suddenly out of work. But it’s definitely a shock.

Please pray for me. I would like to find another job as soon as possible, obviously, but even part-time work would help. (I would rather not live off my severance pay, as you can understand.)

I would also like to finish up my translation project and make some money off it, but that won’t be finished for a few more months. (Although for whatever reason, I’m feeling a creativity burst. Perhaps being blamelessly unemployed starts up the adrenaline.) Obviously I could also put out audiobooks and fiction to make cash, and I even have things I could sell. So I’ve got several strings to my bow, potentially, to eke out my resources if I don’t find a job right away. As I say, I’m in a reasonably good position.

    Prayers — and know that many of us are enjoying that “creativity burst,” at least what we see on the site.
