Loss of income and inner peace

by T

I have had trouble earning an income for sometime despite being well educated. I have registered my name with various online employment sites and private tutoring without success.

I desperately need an income so that I can have money to return back to the US so that I don't lose my permanent residence. I would love to take a teaching appointment at Portland State Univ which has an excellent Middle East Studies program.

My physical and mental health have impacted on me since I don't have an income. I don't like to depend on my wife to give me money. It hurts me very much that as an educated person, I cannot help her despite the efforts made by me to find work. My mood fluctuate from being happy to despondent but try hard to maintain a positive attitude. When I feel down, negative thoughts drag me down a lot.

I ask the man upstairs for guidance but seem to get no answer. I don't know what more I can do.

I have been sending out lots of resumes for teaching positions. There are many adjunct positions but a full-time one with benefits gives you a sense of security. I am tired of struggling and need to return back to the US soon to maintain my greencard status. You ask and ask and ask and nothing seems to happen.

I have twice traveled to the US this year and am confident of snaring a good paying position. I have had my ups and downs but have learned that worrying or feeling depressed does not solve anything. A change of attitude and some help from friends' prayers has helped me a lot.
I am prepared to move sideways doing other work outside my field of education until I land what I desire.
I believe the good Lord will help me achieve my dream in the US. Thanks
