Whether it is giving a gift of encouragement to an ailing friend, or helping a family member cope with a mental illness, giving is better than receiving.
For it is in giving that we receive
1 John 4:12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
“It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.” ― Mother Teresa
“Let us make one point, that we meet each other with a smile, when it is difficult to smile. Smile at each other, make time for each other in your family.” ― Mother Teresa
"You can give without loving, but you can never love without giving." -Author Unknown
“I must be willing to give whatever it takes to do good to others. This requires that I be willing to give until it hurts. Otherwise, there is no true love in me, and I bring injustice, not peace, to those around me.” ― Mother Teresa
“For it is in giving that we receive.” ― St. Francis of Assisi

Prayer to help in the search of a change of careers or to find work, pray to find a job as soon as possible, and that you are able to be mentally, spiritually, and financially stable.
Prayer to Find a Job
Dear God, I place my humble needs before you: My need to meet my responsibilities in the world. My need to use my God-given talents and abilities. My need to fulfill my place here on earth.
I pray for Your guidance now to show me the way to the perfect opportunity to do what I love, to do what I can do well, and what will fulfill my needs mentally, spiritually, and financially. Help me to walk in faith as You show me the way.

There are without a doubt many unlovely people in this world, some may even be found within the church. For God to teach you love he must place unlovely people in your life.
It is easy to love people who love you more difficult to love those who do not love but always keep in mind in order for God to teach you love he must place unlovely people in your life. Amen.

Thirst for wisdom and understanding; search for these from God as you would search for hidden treasure.
The Blessings of Wisdom
|Tune your ears to wisdom|
2 My son, if you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
2 turning your ear to wisdom
and applying your heart to understanding—
3 indeed, if you call out for insight
and cry aloud for understanding,
4 and if you look for it as for silver
and search for it as for hidden treasure,
5 then you will understand the fear of the Lord
and find the knowledge of God.
6 For the Lord gives wisdom;
from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
7 He holds success in store for the upright,
he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,
8 for he guards the course of the just
and protects the way of his faithful ones.
9 Then you will understand what is right and just
and fair—every good path.
10 For wisdom will enter your heart,
and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.
11 Discretion will protect you,
and understanding will guard you.
12 Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men,
from men whose words are perverse,
13 who have left the straight paths
to walk in dark ways,
14 who delight in doing wrong
and rejoice in the perverseness of evil,
15 whose paths are crooked
and who are devious in their ways.

All though your heart is heavy, still rejoice because you know that God is able to work it out and turn a mess into a message.
Hardship is Life’s Best Teacher
God is able.
Tough life lessons are seeds when planted; the new growth is greater blessings in our lives. The more challenging the hard times, the more valuable will be the lessons. By exercising faith in God looking outside ourselves, we discover God is able to work it out and turn a mess into a message.
