Major stress and life changes

Postby SoccerLOTR » Thu Jan 12, 2012 9:08 pm

So, some of this is a positive thing that I'm excited about, but other parts just hard.
I am starting police academy on Monday, which is awesome, but I'm super nervous about getting everything right and passing classes/keeping up with physical requirements, etc. I really need peace, focus, endurance, and clarity of mind to get through the next five months.
Second part of this request is that my family is having a lot of issues. Well, have been, but more are coming to light and it's become increasingly difficult to handle it all and I'm tired of worrying all the time. I really need guidance and hope here, and I really hope God will touch my dad's heart and change it so that there can be some peace in the house.

That's really awesome that you are starting at the police academy SoccerLOTOR, I'll be praying that you can keep up with everything and for peace and guidance and also for your family during this difficult time.

It's going crazy...so busy, so exhausting...but things here and there are finally starting to click, and I'm excited for the firearms and driving that we're starting this weekend! Thanks for the prayers, sometimes I think that's all that will get me through!

Praise God, glad things seem to be improving somewhat! :D And I totally know that feeling from when I had my depression. God's really the only One/Thing that can get us through this stuff. :)

Hey all, thanks so much for those of you who have prayed for me...I just graduated academy last week!! God got me through when I never thought I'd make it to the end! Now thanking Him for that, a potential job (not my ideal position, but something to pay the bills!) and hopefully a couple opportunities for permanent jobs!! :)
