Been praying.. keeping faith in my heart and staying focused..

I received a letter today saying to call for food stamps on Monday to set up an interview so I'm hoping I get them-- I have been calling churches, organizations, programs all kinds of places to see about help

I just want to THANK YOU LORD.. Amen

Keeping all those in my prayers to find what you need during these hard times we are all having

christmas assistance, Holiday help: We all go through times of stress and need someone we can look up to for

We all go through times of stress and need someone we can look up to for relief. It can be a best friends inspirational words, music, or most importantly, God. No matter what the circumstance we can always rest in the fact that God will always be faithful.

I and my family are struggling like a lot ppl are right now--- I'm trying my hardest to do right and keep right like I think I am.. I am finishing up school, I am conquering major health issues and my kids are happy, we do have a roof over our heads and even though food is minimum I'm doing the best I can for them

I have come here looking for answers or help actually ANYTHING but I found I can do this-- I can make it, I've come this far in my life to WANT/ FEEL LIKE giving up now... I thank the LORD everyday just for giving me a beautiful day even when I feel like the world is weighing me down

I may NOT have a big spread for Christmas but I'm living-- I'm here-- I'm alive and I have my kids whole heartedly so I say it proudly THANK YOU LORD JESUS FOR GIVING ME THIS DAY THANK YOU... AMEN

Worrying and being depressed won't take you anywhere far; it simply adds weights on your shoulder && its TRUE... Sometimes I feel the past and the future pressing so hard on either side that there's no room for the present at all.

I feel like the weight of the world is resting on my shoulders and there is nothing I can do to get out from under it... WE ALL GET LIKE THIS--- damn I'm telling you if its not one thing it will be another for me...... RIGHT NOW, RIGHT NOW juss wanna say............ F IT ALL-- F U WORLD

I'm trying I really am Sister.. I feel lately like I want to give up but I look at my kids each and everyday that I am thankful for them I haven't.

I've looked into places for help-- lots of places and being so late into the holiday season there already set for giving help until next year and I'm hearing not until maybe March of 2015

Right at this time I don't know what to think when the kids are in bed now.. I take my shower and just cry- I'm sitting here now crying barely being able to type-- I can't give up for them. I just can't

CHRISTMAS HELP, christmas assistance: I need help DEPERATELY--- Its 12/7/14, When I started thinking about

I need help DEPERATELY--- Its 12/7/14, When I started thinking about writing this.. I need financial assistance, I have kids and I am a fulltime student who does NOT receive public assistance I just got cut off right before Thanksgiving and with Christmas just around the corner I do NOT have this kind of money at all--- I barely make it month to month and I have called 211 looking for ANY TYPE of ASSISTANCE and to no avail have I found ANYTHING--I'm very STRESSED and do nothing but be depressed and cry, I don't tell my children what is happening right now cause this is an adult worry... UGH... PLEASE SOMEONE.. ANYONE... If you can HELP in anyway: financial or information, I appreciate anything right now... PLEASE I am asking that you contact me to let me know either way if you can assist me. IF you need or want a list of what they would like, I can provide them. My email is INCLUDED HERE so please we are struggling financially we just can't do it my daughter has found a job but has yet to start even trying to help when she can-- I have also started to look but don't know where I will fit it in, but the 2 older ones they both WANT to HELP, I DO UNDERSTAND that the financial situations of our economy is making employment hard to find and get, but we are trying. I used to only get $236 a month from food assistance and my disability goes to both rent and bills so I'm broke even by the time I get what I get each month. I am grateful but I know it is NOT enough-- I really do need the help, I am currently working on my education and hoping that my new year 2015 has something waiting for me to better my life cause I'm jumping in head first at the opportunity to do it. I do appreciate any and all help that I am able to receive.

I'm going to change my future.. I do not want to have this every end of the year to me-- I always say this and darn it what else is there for me to do when I'm working on it.... What am I doing wrong to have this happen to me?? Uuugh-- reeeeally...

So I have been cut off food stamps since before THANKSGIVING && now I'm NOT get'n ANYTHING- right now going to go to the office && see what's going on && maybe have to reapply.. IDK... just need a little faith right now

Its going to be soooo tough already--stretching this little amount for the whole month or until I can get APPROVED or whatever happens with government stuff, puts a big hassle on me && my family-- I'm going to have a surgery coming in either December or January so I will be really tied down bed ridden for a bit-- so I'm trying to get what help I can now-- It was sooooo sad at home && this Christmas coming up-- IDK I just want to shut down cause my health seem to be up && down feeling like all the medications I take don't help for nothing the cold is hard for me

Just need HELP--- I accept any && appreciate all...... NEW 2015-- I SAID && KEEP SAYING is going to be better for me && my family... just need to make it-- keep'n my head straight, clear && trying to stay focused BUT TIMES LATELY are sooooo soooo hard-- my kids look sad cause they want a Christmas

I will take gift cards even for the DOLLAR STORE.... but really need something to happen--- something good to come along && I don't have the $$$ to do it-- I barely make it to my dr. appts. as it is-- I faithfully do go to each one but its a daily struggle

EMARASSEMENT--- THE EMBARASSING MOMENT of all this, I can't believe it-- went to several churches, Salvation Army, Catholic Services && other places for help but the Holiday Help seems to have came && gone feel like they just are empty until they can restock but even that there is a waiting list && was told the list has been full since the first day of last year-- I'm like WHAAAT??? How are those of us NOW gon' get help??

Somebody PLEASE HELP ME, help in time of need: I have learned a lot about myself in the last year or so. I

I have learned a lot about myself in the last year or so. I learned that even though life is not always full of what you want, it does not always mean you should quit. I think that my will power for issues surrounding my life have definitely been put into perspective. Once I knew I set my mind to further myself educationally, personally and in a big life changing way, there is just no stopping me from achieving that goal. If I fail than I will just have to try, try, and try again.
On the surface I think I am like most young and modern American women: I take school seriously, I have dreams and goals for the future that I am determined to make happen, and I don’t expect anyone to do the hard work for me. I have devoted my life both to working to better myself and to improving civilization as a whole. Throughout the rest of my life, I hope to continue in this same manner of unselfish work. Sometimes a task can seem monumental when you try to visualize the entire thing, but if you break it down into smaller goals suddenly it can become manageable. When I first started to consider going to college so that I could make a better life for my family and myself, I thought it was going to be almost impossible.
I have always had a clear idea of what I wanted to become in my future. I have always been excited about the medical field, diabetes particularly, and the medical office is the area which interests me most.
I really do appreciate you taking the time to read about myself. I understand also that you have lots of requests that come your way throughout the year not just during the holidays. I am working on myself to make the best of my years to come and I really believe that my new year 2014/15 has something great waiting for me to keep me financially healthy. I will give back without question because I am one of the many out there that have fallen on trying times and looking for someone to just lend a helping hand. I am thankful for any kind of assistance and wish you and yours the best and greatest of faith, strength and love.
RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT-- I am in a very depressed, my anxiety is over the top and just DO NOT feel like me... I don't know what to do-- I have a 45 min. session talking to a therapist- which right now doesn't seem to help me.. I was approved for the gym and I been going but its NOT WORKING.. I went to see my dr. yesterday and still NO GOOD NEWS
I feel there is NO HOPE FOR ME and I don't know what to do, my life is on PAUSE or something its STUCK thought and felt like I was going to be ahead but in reality.. I'm just barely gliding by on tippy toes

MaaaaaaaaN.. what?? what is it?? what did I miss?? what am I missing?? where or what is it that I'm not getting?? UuuuGH, every time I get lost in my thoughts over these questions and NO ANSWERS to suffice what I feel...

Soooooo NOW: its from inside to GIVE UP.. OK- I GIVE UP--- I JUST GIVE UP.......... I won't ever be ahead I won't ever finish school, I won't even get to be healthy enough to even enjoy my life....... Uuuugh

Never underestimate the difference YOU can make in the lives of others. Step forward, reach out and help. This week reach to someone that might need a lift. Even the smallest act of caring for another person is like a drop of water -it will make ripples throughout the entire pond…

I struggle EVERYDAY just like any other-- I wonder what's next also... I keep my faith strong && willingness to conquer this, WHATEVER IT IS

I'm sorry I can't offer materialistic things, money or anything worth something but I have MY HEART && I will offer it to you

I need help seems like on a daily but I do with what I got && can with what I can have but other than that-- LIFE doesn't STOP for ANYONE
