Introduction:

Losing your job is a horrible thing for anyone to go through. However, here is a list of reasons why you should be looking at it as a gift from God.

True

First of all, it is good to look at losing your job as a gift from God, because it truly is. There are worse things that could have happened. It is not the end of the world. It may seem like it is the end of the world at first, but soon you will see things in a more positive manner.

Everything happens for a reason in our daily lives, so it is important for you to realize this. Realizing that losing your job is not the end of the world will help you to start looking up and believing that there are better things to come your way in all aspects of your life.

Hate

Most people hate working and hate their jobs. People who lose their jobs often spend too much time crying about their loss. This is especially true if they have always hated their job to begin with.

When you have lost your job, for whatever reason, you need to look at it as a gift from God. You no longer need to continue on day after day working at that same old, rotten place where you had been working with total hatred for all that time.

You need to lift your chin up. Be happy about your new life, and keep an open mind for all new possibilities.

Unemployment

You lost your job. It was dreadful. You cried about it, and eventually you picked yourself up off the floor realizing that you really did truly hate that old job anyway. This is an awesome reason for you to be looking at losing your job as if it were a gift from God.

Obviously, you still need money, and you still need to take responsibility in caring for yourself and your family if you have one. Rest assured that everything really will turn out just fine.

Apply as quickly as you can for unemployment. This extra money will surely help you to make ends meet at this time in your life. See what other benefits are available for you and your family. You can apply for food stamps, medicaid, WIC, HEAP, and more. Take advantage of these benefits as you truly do deserve them.

Freedom

You need to be looking at losing your job as a good thing and looking at it as a gift from God. After all, by quickly taking advantage of all of of the state and federal benefits that are available to you, you can now live a better life while still looking for another job to replace your old one.

Losing your job truly is a gift from God. You hated that old job, anyway. You are now getting paid for not working, and you also have the freedom along with the opportunity to choose a new job that you would enjoy doing.

Better Life

Because you have lost your job, you can now actually make a better life for yourself and for your family. This truly is a gift from God, because you know that you never would have left that old job even though you have always been meaning to. That decision has finally been made for you, and it was truly a lot easier for you than just plain quitting.

It is true that finding a job these days can be quite difficult, but now you have the opportunity to search out new fields of employment, jobs that may be more enjoyable, and even new hours of employment.

Take advantage of this opportunity to do the best that you can and to find a new job that is better than the last one. You can probably even find a new job where you will be earning higher wages.

Slow down and relax. Use this precious time wisely. Enjoy spending as much good, quality time with your friends and your family as you can during this time. This truly is a gift from God.

    Excellent list. As we all know and as patriciac mentioned, everything does happen for a reason. Nice job.

    Everything happens for a reason, and the reason is always good. I lost my job more than 2 years ago, and these 2 years have been great.
    I've stretched my wings as a writer, and had a wonderful opportunity to prove my faith.

    You may be aware that I was layed-off and forced to retire. I look upon this as a great gift to exercise my writing abilities to their fullest potential. Your list validated what I have been thinking about. HI5
