I am trying hard not to worry about this but having people pray would make me feel better.
I'm a nanny and I thought I'd be getting a raise this month but my boss is pregnant and a little moody and apparently she doesn't think I merit one right now... even though I thought I was going "the extra mile" for her quite a bit... am feeling really unappreciated right now. She is due in March and has told me that when she has the baby she will be going on maternity leave for SIX months and will only need me part time then, maybe 25 hours a week. I am worried about what I will do for income then because I'm barely making it by NOW. Please pray that God will provide me with either the full 40 hours at my nanny job that I work with or a 2nd job, or that SOMETHING will work out in the spring... that God will give me some guidance on what to do because I just don't know what to do. My "2nd baby raise" which was supposed to come when the 2nd baby was born, "will not be merited" until she goes back to work which won't be til August/September... I am just worried about this whole situation. I really need some peace of mind and some guidance about this whole situation. I really love the baby I take care of now, she is a real joy, but I don't know what to do about all this.

Luke 17:6 New International Version (©1984)
He replied, "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it will obey you.
I pray God helps you have faith the size of a peach seed.

Matthew 6:34 New American Standard Bible (©1995)
"So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Which of you can add a day to his life by worrying about it?
“The Bible recognizes that inequalities will inevitably arise in a `fallen' society. ..."

We know the LORD cares for the sparrow, we need to trust that HE cares for us!

God’s eye is on the sparrow
and sees your darkest night;
you will not be left comfortless [I](nor helpless)[/I],
for you are God’s delight.
chorus @ God?s Eye Is on the Sparrow | spiritandsong.com

Matthew 10:29-31 (Amplified Bible)
29 Are not two little sparrows sold for a penny? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's leave (consent) and notice.
30 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
31 Fear not, then; you are of more value than many sparrows.

Matthew 6:26-27 (New International Version)
26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life [a]?
------- [a] Or single cubit to his height

We are precious to God. God will take care of us. God’s eye is on the sparrow. God’s eye is on you with tenderness. God’s heartbeat is love. You are cherished, valued, loved beyond understanding just as you are.

May you be blessed w/the tender love & care of God.

Peace to you from your Provider & Protector, Jesus.

My friend if you take the time to really get to know Him trusting Him gets easy.

Do nicely let this lady know that you can't make it on that salary cut.

I have a feeling that dear lady will be changing her mind shortly but if not I will be believing God for a better position for you.
