Dear God... Why Me?

I have always been that guy to help others who are in need, sometimes to a fault. For the past few years I have been a caregiver to a very sick friend. They are on life support and reside within my home.

Fastforwarding... I finally landed the job I struggled for a year to get. All was well until we had to work mandatory extra long hours. It just so happened to be one Friday and I couldn't get any nurse coverage. So, I had to leave work in order to render care... Subsequently, I lost my job in the midst of bad economic times. I was free. I was paying down bills and becoming debt free. Now this... If only...

Now onto a hurried impromptu plan B. Overall, if I had nobody in my life, I
Would want a self-sacrificing friend like me. But God, why me?

Thank you for reading.

So compassionate of you! You will be rewarded for that sacrifice and compassion. I'm sure everyone would love to have a friend like you. That's awesome. Although you lost your job, everything is for reason and maybe there is something better for you that you are not aware of.

I'm so sorry you lost your job. I don't know if I would want to work for a company that has no compassion or realization that people actually have lives outside the company. I know it doesn't seem like it right now, but maybe something better will come along real soon.

I'm sure you know that things in life happen for a reason, and although that job provided security and a way out of debt.... God's plan for the direction of your life is better than you can ever expect! You will have to employ a little more patience until your new source of income is revealed....I'm confident it'll be soon! There was a reason you couldn't find suitable care for your friend....God appreciates all that you're doing for that person and declared that your job of caring for him/her is not done just yet! No doubt you have to make a living, but if you stay faithful and believe that all things will work out for the good, then God will make sure to place you where you need to be at the right time!
