I’ve recently learned how I’m the fall guy, the person that’s going to be cut due to circumstances beyond my control. It came without warning, just a short meeting to say how everyone is there to support me; however, in 30 days if the situation has turned around then I’ll be out the door.
The meeting wasn’t what I expected. I truly believed we were going to sit down, put our heads together to work through a plan to change what needs to change. Obviously that’s not what took place.
So now what, I say? I’m not a quitter, never have been, but reading between the lines I can see that without warning the wagons have circled and I’m without protection. Shame on me for going through life with blinders on.
I’ve been praying for guidance, for protection… especially for my family. Even though I started submitting applications for employment right away, it takes time to catch the eye of a potential new employer. With the loss of my income things will not go well.
Patiently I wait for God to give guidance in hopes for my family.
John 16:33: I have told you this so that through me you may have peace. In the world you’ll have trouble, but be courageous—I’ve overcome the world!
