    A month or two ago I told my roommate we needed to talk and that I felt like I was being taken advantage of because she was not paying her end of the bills and when she did it was way behind the due date. So I saw on her internet status the other day that she is looking for a new apartment. Her stuff is still here so I can't ask anyone to move in and to be honest I don't want to, but I am having trouble paying the bills and am having to borrow money from my parents. I hate it! I realize today is just a frustrating day and we all have those, but I really need God's direction. Seomeone told me about a cheaper apartment, but it is practically an ancient slum, closer to church, but farther from work. My father is upset with me that I would even consider moving to friendship. He is not a Christian and doesn't like the idea of me moving farther away from him and closer to my church family. It's just a plethera of things today in addition to getting my lesson planning done. They added another subject to my load. I know all things work together for good, but I need to see it manifested soon.

    Dearest Friend,

    I remember many situations with roommates which were sticky like yours.

    I will pray for you that everything works out for the best!

    Blessings to You! =)

    You're in my prayers too. While I have never ever had a roommate before marriage, I only know how sticky many situations can be. My daughter has had several roommates.

    Life can be tough, but we have a God who knows.
    You, your situation and your family are in my prayers.

    Thank you both, the situation has not been resolved yet. I believe God will take care of me, but bills are due tomorrow and waiting for the manifestation of it.

    I am willing and obedient, and I eat the good of the land. (Isaiah 1:19)

    Update. Roommates stuff is GONE. Looks really bare. I had all the basics and she had all the rest. Guess this means I can decorate.
