Will the Lord give me another chance?

I was recently hired at Century 21. This week, we were assigned to complete 4 days of training. I successfully completed 3 days, but on the last day I was not able to attend due to certain circumstances. I called them afterwards, and explained the situation. They told me that the training is mandatory, and I am required to complete all 4 days. They also stated that there is no way to reschedule the training because its only every 2 weeks or so, and they aren't sure when the next training is. So now they told me they are taking me out of the system, and I have to reapply all over again, and complete the training from scratch. Plus there is no guarantee of me getting the training again so I am really upset at this point.

When I had the job, I complained about it and took it for granted. Now that I technically don't have it anymore, I am truly upset and wish that I wasn't so naive. I realize my mistake, and I should have more thankful for it. Is there any chance that the Lord may let me redeem myself and give me another chance? I messed up, and I admit it. I have spent the last few days in massive pain, and I hope that God can see my strength and please give me another chance at this job. I am sorry, dear Lord. Please allow me the chance to redeem myself. I repent. I repent.

It sounds like you made a really bad impression...sorry but it's true, there are some things you just don't miss.

Just try and focus on what your current duties are and the time will come when you will get another chance, next time, you MUST attend.

I feel like it gave me something to look forward too during the day. Now, I am back to my mundane life, sitting home doing nothing. I am so sorry Father. Please allow me to get another chance to redeem myself. I promise I will continue to work hard, in your name and help my family and do whatever I can. Please, Father. I truly acknowledge my mistake, and I know that how I acted was inappropriate.

The thing is, I didn't miss it intentionally. The night I was supposed to attend, I had a huge panic attack, I felt like I was going to die. I literally had a terrible breakdown. I am trying to forget about it. I was honestly going to attend work that day, If It wasn't for this breakdown and all this that has happened.

I truly did not plan to miss that last day of work. I just had the worst panic attack, and If you take a look at my other thread, you will see what happened. It's just such a misfortune. I wonder if I really deserve all the pain I've been experiencing these past few days..

The Lord will always give another chance, but Century 21 may not.
Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men.

Complaining is not healthy, and don't worry about that job.
Why are you so upset about a job that enables you to work for things that spoil?
Focus not on this world, because it is a evil illusion.

Store your treasure where it can't be destroyed or taken, by doing the work of God. Trusting the One he sent, and being concerned about the least of these people that are among us.

"Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions."
&
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Peace be to you.

Maybe you should try and find a job with less responsibility for the time being, if you are having panic attacks in anticipation for a job, the job itself is probably too much for you right now.

Well, it's not the job that gave me a panic attack. It's just.. that night I started hearing unusual sensations in my ears as I was laying awake going to bed, and stuff like this isn't normal for me, so I started freaking out and I couldn't understand what was going on. And since that night, I've been experiencing these weird sensations and It's a long story but due to that happening, it cost me a job. I don't know. I feel like I am being attacked by the devil or something. I was perfectly fine that night, but after that I've been a train wreck. I've been sleep deprived, not eating normally, and all of this crazy stuff. My moms friend came over yesterday and performed Reiki on me. (Japanese spiritual healing) I believe it did help me some. I started eating again normally today and the ringing has diminished slightly. I don't know why or how it started..

This is one of the problems. These type of "spiritual" practices are not biblical and they can invite demonic activity into your life. Do you believe in Jesus?

Yes I believe in Jesus. As she was performing the Reiki, she was reciting verses from the Bible to heal me. I dont see how that can be demonic at all. It felt very refreshing and cleansing.
