God Will Make a Way

News Wednesday without letter of warning
Unemployment in six more weeks ending
I knew eventually benefits would run out
But it is still a shock how it all came about

Two weeks prior let go from a temp position
Last week reopened my claim with valid reason
After being bumped out for wages of three days
Getting benefits resumed often results in delays

Today when I called to clarify reason temp job ended
Questions were not asked as my records were updated
Also inquired about unemployment ending notification
Final attempt to file with error message of determination

An email response this afternoon from inquiry Tuesday
Indicated I did not file weekly benefit claim on Sunday
I replied with statement confirmation number I printed
Another bump in the road before the matter is resolved

Lord, You protected me with the temp job as I was let go
Each detail was a part of the process so that I would know
Unemployment would soon end, allowing me to find out
You will make a way throughout all of this I have no doubt

Wednesday received new health insurance packet in mail
Prescription plan misrepresented but Lord, You will prevail
I see Your hand in scheduling physical with PA on Friday
Discuss options for meds and changing my doctor anyway

Lord, You allowed me time to review new policy coverage
To obtain prescription refills for next month to save expense
Reviewing providers to see my family physician was not listed
I saw another doctor name where flu shot last year I obtained

Today a call from agency I had waited for over a week to hear
Fourteen hour part-time data entry position they want me there
This afternoon I called clinic and went in for drug screen test
One med may be a factor, but God will handle it, in Him I rest

The lab will call me within 24-48 hours regarding any questions
Lord, You will guide me how to bridge cost gap for prescriptions
Finding a new doctor and provide when expenses are unplanned
Also issues with unemployment all these things are in Your hand
