I think I might have an idea how you feel. I lost my job of 6yrs in 2008 because of health issues. I have a total of 4 back surgeries. But during my sickness one thing kept me and I will share this one thing with you. "You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You." (Isaiah 26:3) This You is Jesus Christ. 

My dear I was and still is at a place where I have to learn to trust God, so I made a conscious decision to take my mind off my $577 truck payments and off my rent and insurance and off my kids going to college and off the fact that I'm a single mom with three sons. Now my truck is paid off, I've always pay my rent and insurance, my oldest son will be graduating from college next year and my second son starting college next month, and the most important of all is that during my sickness my relationship with Jesus Christ became amazing and my fellowship with the Holy Spirit became intense. And to Jesus be all the Glory! I pray my testimony encourage your heart my friend. Take this time and get to know Jesus deeper, He is your source sweetie. May God bless and keep you, may He cause His face to shine upon you and may He keep your heart in perfect peace. God bless you.
