"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

Yes, I was laid off today. After 4.5 years. Knew that was one of the possibilities though. Although my spirit prepared me ahead of time of this possibility, it is still hard. The full force will hit me in the next few days.


  1. I'm so sorry. You are in my prayers.

  2. I believe that when God closes one door he opens another. I am sad to hear of your lay off. It is hard to accept the fact but I know you will find another job.. I'm keeping you in my prayers.

    Peace and love,

  3. JBR I'm very sorry. My heart goes out to you. You've had it rough.

  4. O My Heavens JBR!! Someone with your skills will find a job quickly. God is removing you from an untenable situation. I always said if I didn't listen hard enough to what God is saying he will just kick my rear into gear and put me on the path I should have been on. Hoping this is a truly GOOD thing.

  5. ((((JBR))))

  6. Really concerned to hear your news tonight. You are in my prayers as always. Keep on fighting! C

  7. God will provide...trust him. Praying the Holy Spirit give you peace.....maybe he has plans to put you in another place,a better place! Just trust him to work out all things for your good...praying blessings over your life...in Jesus name.

  8. I'm so sorry hon. I do believe that God has something better for you. Seek Him ask Him to guide you to where He wants you to be and then trust that what you find is from Him.



  10. This has happen to me and I feel for you. It is a loss so grief will come and will pass quicker if you don't fight it.

    It is hard not to let a job become who you are but it isn't who we are it is what we do. At the end of our lives we won't look back an say I wish I had been a better worker.

    I have been an avid follower of your JBR for the last couple of yrs. Reading what you've gone through in your life. The realness in your trials and struggles. The determination you set as an example to connect to your feelings and to seek wellness. I usually sign my name when I comment to you. For some reason today I choose not to. I feel compelled to remain anonymous. I feel very sad by your latest news and feel grieved along with you. You will persevere. You past posts reflect how you do so with the help of God. My arms surround you in hugs.

  12. Sorry to hear this JBR.

    I found, when this happened to me, I did have to take time to grieve the loss.


  13. O No! I'm really sorry! This must be very hard for you. You've been such a encourager to me I wish I could help you. Keep the faith. Your strong.

  14. Keep trusting in Him and I pray for a better opportunity that it has to happen...That's what happened to me JBR though my work is pretending they still are keeping me when technically, they took away my permanent position...Praying for His strength, comfort and provision. Take care JBR. God bless.

  15. I'm so sorry. When I lost my job a couple years ago, it was out of the blue, but I don't think that even knowing it was a possibility would have helped.

    Sending you hugs and prayers...

  16. JBR,
    I'm Sorry. I'll pray for you. I know there's something better out there. another ministry for you. God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory.

  17. JBR...I'm sorry this has happened to you. I will be praying that God makes His path and solution well known to you...soon! Who knows...it could very well be a blessing in disguise.
    Keeping you lifted in prayer, my friend.

  18. J B R I am sorry. When I saw in my google reader your title I had to come over to read it. I'm sorry.

  19. Oh JBR...I'm so sorry. I read your recent post about your job worries and your fear of being laid off but I was hoping this wouldn't happen. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers, my friend. When I read this post my heart fell to my feet. I know you already feel overwhelmed and don't need a trial like this right now. I will be praying that God floods you with grace and peace (and for a job for you - God surely has something in mind). Sending you a big hug.

  20. I'm so sorry JBR :(
    I've been living in the states for more than a year and hasn't been able to find a job. Wishing you find out another one very soon.

  21. I am sorry to hear that JBR. I will be praying that the Lord provides you a new job quickly.

  22. I'm so sorry to hear this JBR - I know from personal experience how tough this can be. I will send out an extra prayer for you tonight, in hopes that the path ahead of you is clear.

  23. You are in my thoughts and prayers...

  24. God will work somehting out JRB. He's helped me manh times with my problems. Praying

  25. JBR - so sorry for this loss - feel what you have a right to feel and then start to embrace that when one door closes another opens
    Love Gail

  26. JBR was thinking about you this morning and wanted to pop in to encourage you and remind you that God's love is bigger than any problem. He's right there with you. Will see you through. God Bless.

  27. I can't help but think....when one door closes another opens and JBR...He's got you. He knew even before you did. He's got plans...awesome ones. For now...rest...take time for you.

  28. oh friend, I so send love and prayers to
    wrap you in comfort and tender care
    as you process and grieve the loss
    and let it go
    and let Love soothe and mend and shepherd
    you into the "next" that I know the Lord
    has planned for you
    My heart aches for the sadness you must feel.
    And I cheer you on into the next thing
    that awaits.
    Much love and care,

  29. I am so sorry that this happened. I wish you all the best and hope things turn around soon. I really mean that.

  30. JBR, we often hold on to things which we have outgrown; who's time simply have passed. Its liking staring at a closed door - hence not seeing other doors opening up.
    Its a shock, a lesson, a new start! It holds sadness and so many many opportunities. Love and hugs!

  31. I am so sorry to hear this JBR. Just try to stay strong but cry if you have to. Don't spend too much time weeping over this because time still goes on. I am saying this from someone who wasted too much time and energy over my losses that I never found something else because I was too busy looking back. Continue to stay strong in the Lord. I will say a prayer for you. Also this is not meant to sound insensitive or anything, I just don't want anyone to suffer what I have been for the last 5 years. Time is precious and doesn't come back to us.

  32. I'm so sorry JBR.

    I'm praying for you even now, that God will shoulder this load and that His next steps for you will bring peace and wisdom, as you wait for the answers that are coming. There are no surprises to our God. He loves JBR, and hasn't turned His head for a second. I'll be praying as His plan for you unfolds.

    Love you, keep your head up... this was one chapter, there is a next chapter coming and I will be praying alongside of you for each step. May God wrap you up in His arms and hold you close as you trust His heart JBR.
