Message to unemployed
President/CEO/Co-Founder: Brad Lindemann
We’re one week into the 2017 New Year having just finished what seemed like the fastest year ever. As I do each January, I’m reflecting upon the many unemployed professionals we’ve had the privilege of working with over nearly 28 years. If you’re currently among them, you may feel like time is standing still. For you, it really doesn’t matter that the nation is no longer in a recession. Your personal unemployment rate is 100% and you may be struggling through depression. That’s why I offer these words of encouragement…for you.
As with any advice, you should always consider the source. If the one telling you how to live your life has never walked in your shoes, proceed with caution. Such is not the case here. I was ruthlessly fired by my previous employer and have survived three near death corporate experiences since co-founding Ambassador Solutions is 1989. To date, 2009 was far and away the most difficult year of my life, both personally and professionally. I clung for dear life to the words of encouragement that I’m about to give you…and it worked! God showed up for me and He will show up for you.
Do not lose hope. THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE. I know. You’ve heard it all. I’m sure you haven’t been wanting for career advice from well-meaning family members, friends and former associates. No matter what they say, what you hear them saying is, “get a job!” It hurts at the core of your being. As you click-through another unemployed day on your digital calendar, with it goes another shred of your ever shrinking self-esteem. The mounting financial pressure seems unbearable at times.
So, how can anyone bear the burden of unemployment? The truth is no one can…alone. The truth is people were not designed to bear such burdens alone. The truth is, God alone can and will bear your burdens (job-wise or otherwise), so that you don’t have to bear them alone. YOU ARE NEVER ALONE.
The God of the universe is with you. Your reading this message is no accident. Read on, to hear what God Himself has to say…to you:
I don’t know you, but I do know that GOD LOVES YOU…with or without a job. I do know that if your circumstances seem impossible, then it’s time to turn them over to the God who makes all things possible. I do know that if you’re feeling like a failure, then it’s time to turn to the One who will never fail you nor forsake you. I do know that if you’re lacking bread for the table, then it’s time to turn to Him who is the bread of life.
Only you know if it’s time to turn to God. Is it? If it is, then the Ambassador Prayer Team would be honored to come alongside you before Him. Just let us know how we can best pray for you.
Could Ambassador be the answer to your job prayers? It’s possible, but we don’t want to build false hopes. If you’re a seasoned IT professional, please make sure we have your up-to-date information in our data base. If we can help you, we will.
My friend, there is always hope…you are never alone…God loves you. May you and yours know God’s presence, peace and providence –both now and forevermore!
