Today, a friend of mine put an encouragement up on Facebook: though the sorrow may last through the night, joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5)
I don’t have sorrow right now, I have stress and worry and doubt. And these are awful things for a christian to have, but I’m going to be honest & say that we all still experience these things, at least I do.
I have stress because I’m finishing up my degree in 5 weeks. 4 years of crazy hard work & it will all be over in 5 weeks. And fitting, I have a bajillion things to do with my thesis study, class assignments, presentations, and conferences. I know I’ll get it all done somehow, but it’s still a stressful prospect.
I have worry about of my housing situation. It went from bad to good to worse. This is where I’m wondering where I will find my morning. This is the thing that will probably haunt me for the next year.
My housemate won’t pay rent again and our hydro bill came in and it’s huge. And she hasn’t told me she’s going to pay her share, so to avoid having our hydro cut off, I am covering her portion. She now owes me over $100 and that money was supposed to be my grocery money for this month. Now I can’t buy food. I don’t need to buy food yet, but when I do, I won’t be able to afford to until she pays me back.
I need to confront her about this & stress the importance of paying me back or else I’ll starve. Which infuriates me because it shouldn’t be a question of whether I can eat or not because I work two jobs PLUS full time school & I am working my butt off to afford my stuff, she shouldn’t just float through & be able to take my money.
Money is stressful guys.
Please help me pray for my housemate. Please help me pray for trust in God in this. I’m worried about the money. I’m worried that she won’t ever pay me back & I’ll end up paying for the next month’s hydro bill too. I’m just plan old stressed and worried.
Please help me pray. I need to find peace & my morning
