"To Nicole re Job Searches"

Nicole - thanks for your post regarding job searching.
I was made redundant from my job as a software engineer at the end of November 2011. Being convinced that the Lord is coming for us soon and at the same time having only a few months redundancy money to live on with no other income (only debts) forces me to walk a thin line between faith and despair every day. I had been praying that the Lord would disentagle us from the world and thereby prepare us to be ready to meet him but I didn't expect to be disentangled to that extent! I feel that I've been given time but no direction from the Lord yet. Common sense says I should be looking for work but since I'm nearly 56, there's not much chance of that happening and I just feel such loathing when I try to get myself together enough to trawl through job sites. I'm still waiting for the Lord to give me clear direction on this so if any of you feel you have a word from the Lord, I'd be most interested to hear it.
