I live in Virginia. My fiancé lives in California. We were planning on getting married and moving to South Carolina. However, recently she has expressed to me how sad she feels about leaving California and she feels it's unfair that she has to move so far away from her family, whereas mine would only be a 6 hour drive away. And she feels it's unfair because we met in California.
Here's a short background on us. We met nearly 2 years ago in southern California. I was in the Navy, and she was going to college. She actually helped me strengthen my walk in Christ while we were dating. Everything was going fine. She moved up to Northern California with her sister thus beginning our long distant relationship. I tried to visit every other weekend when I didn't have duty or underway.
I decided I was going to stay in California. I found a job that I had lined up for after my Navy contact ended. And I asked her to marry me. She said yes. At that moment our relationship hit struggles. She was feeling disconnected from me. She was having issues with her sister and family and she moved out of her sisters place in with her mom. I was struggling with being away from her and the stress of an upcoming deployment. 4 months after being engaged, she broke up with me a week before my deployment.
I was devastated. It added more stress and pain having to leave on deployment. I prayed day in and day out. I knew this was God's will, but I prayed and asked if there was anyway I could fulfill His plan with her in my life.
We messaged each other but nothing saying we were getting back together. Just real friendly conversations. I decided to move back to the east coast like I originally intended, and I told her. She said she figured I would.
After I had my moved planned (4 months after the breakup), we started talking and messaging more. And I was feeling a lot better. And then I went to see her and we decided to get back together. I told her that I wanted to move to South Carolina, she was hesitant but agreed.
I'm currently staying with my mom and I recently got a job interview in South Carolina. Everything is going according to plan. We're even attending pre marital counseling online. Then she says she's been feeling really sad about leaving.
I feel there are signs saying that we should go on with our plans. The moment I said I was going to stay in California, things got rough and hard. And even our relationship ended. I decided to move back east and my life got less stressful and I got her back in my life.
But she feels it's unfair. She's really sad. She's lived in California her entire life and I believe she feels that no other place can live up to California.
We don't see eye to eye on this. I'm praying really hard for God to help me and guide me and show me the path I should take according to His will.
Any advice or thoughts on our situation? Pray for us both. Thank you. God bless.
Silently praying, I wait for You.
Help me O Lord, your will to do.
Humbly I bow, searching my heart.
Crying inside: 'Where do I start ?'
I stretch out my hand . . .
. . . Why can't I reach?
I know you're the Man . . .
. . . to heal the breach.
Still on my knees, I continue to pray.
You are my Lord. Please meet me half way.
Teach me to stand, upright and tall.
My whole desire, is to give You my all.

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.
