This is the cross, both just and true,
That I should give My life for you.
More than tears and blood alone,
More than a life or broken bones.
Through the pain, beyond all fear,
I took those steps to make it clear.
The Father’s love, so deep and wide,
That He would give His Son to die:
To suffer loss and feel despair…
To lead the way and meet you there.
A place of peace and joy abounding:
Many a voice in praise resounding.
It was for you, I bled and cried…
The curtain rent to open wide.
That you may come into My throne,
And know My Father as your own.
The price of sin and death was paid,
When on the cross My life I gave.
But now you must stand up and run,
From sin and strife, deceptive ‘fun’.
Into My light and joy and peace…
Now is the time: Proclaim Release.
(originally given to me in 2003)
I'm new here and new to the San Diego area. After I graduated in December, I just got up and drove 37 hours to San Diego to start a new chapter in my life. I started going to church here and getting my life in order. I just need a little boost with a little prayer or some support. I've been here for almost two weeks now, and I have been living on my friend's couch. I haven't had any luck with jobs and it is becoming so frustrating for me. Idk I just don't have confidence in myself and I'm terrible with interviews. I get so nervous interacting with people, that I just feel awkward.
I need to have a good job so that I can provide a good healthy environment for myself that allows me to work on this Christian Book I have been pursuing for some time now. The money that I would earn from a job would allow me to give money to the church and poor. I don't have anything hardly and the money I do have is for bills and I have been donating what I have left over to the church. I never told anyone this but I was homeless for 8 months. Not that I forced, but it's because I choose to be. I had a really good job and I just wanted to give everything I had to the needy and to the church. The 8 months I lived in my car was a very intimate time in my life with God, and that's when I really started to begin writing my book.
But right now I just feel like I can't give like I want to and it's very frustrating for me. I'm just asking for a prayer that would allow me to have a job that would allow Jesus to work through me. Everything I do is in his name, and I wouldn't ever sell him short.

Daily Reading 72 If you prefer, you can look up the following verses in your own Bible, or by whatever means and in whichever version you choose.
Matthew 14:22-36 Leviticus 22-23 Proverbs 31 Audio 4:14 Audio 4:41 Audio 2:50 The above verse addresses are linked to Bible Gateway. That is an easy way to read (or listen to) the Bible verses, and choose your version. Personally, I prefer written, that way I can go at my own pace, and think about it, before moving on. Nothing wrong with doing either or both. The Bible says faith comes by hearing. See the picture below to get an idea of what to expect if you follow the above links.
Note: The audio will not play the exact verses, it will play the whole chapters, in which the verses exist. Thank you Lord for making the your word so accessible for us in these times. Amen
