I am a fellow believer in Christ. He is my Savior!

I am reaching out for prayer. My heart, soul, and mind are heavy.

So, here is what is going on in my life.....
In Dec 2014, I was told our work site was shutting down (900 people), we would be terminated in 2015 as our projects were completed. Finding another job is the least of my worries. God has always provided me employment/income. Still working currently, but the job searching has begun.
Here are the items which are the heaviest on my heart. Marriage has been a long time struggle, wife struggles with depression, and taking care of her aging mom. 16 yr old daughter is struggling with depression, pier pressure, and school.
All of this is wearing on my soul and body!
Thank you for your prayers!!!

I will be praying for you blugil. There is a lot in this day and time to be burdened with and to feel heavy about. Memorizing scripture has always been a great way for me personally to stay positive and motivated. One of my favorite is "This is the day which the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." - Psalms 118:24 Some days we just have to choose to rejoice by faith! There is a better day ahead! And there is much spiritual strength in the Psalms and Proverbs and just meditating on God's word is a source of great strength and encouragement. As you are encouraged by it, share some verses with your wife and daughter to lift them up too.

Continue your faith in God. As long as you continue to believe in your faith he will continue to carry you thru these tough times. These are just distractions to vere you off of a path of righteousness and happiness. Matthew 6:33 seek first the kingdom of God and all these thing will be given to you.

Well guys please pray especially for my daughter. We are in the ER right now. She intentionally took too may antidepressant and ADHD meds this evening while at our church youth in town retreat. Not sure why she did that. Guys, pray that God will intervene in her life. Pray He will hold her tight and she will not harm herself. Pray that her mom and I will be guided in what to say and do to help her and for her to feel loved. Thank you for your prayers.
