Long Term Unemployment~Unexpected

December 1, 2017 will begin my 11th month of unemployment, definitely not for lack of trying.  Daily, I apply for jobs and pray. I also circulate my resume, follow-up on referrals and network.
My emergency fund and all financial resources are depleted. I am experiencing one of the most difficult times in my life. My health insurance, if not paid by December 1, 2017, will be cancelled. I also have to pay other major expenses (e.g. mortgage) which are 2-3 months past due.
It has been said: the darkest hour is right before day, I believe that. There's also a saying: light is at the end of the tunnel, I'm beginning to see light, yet I've not made it to the end. In the interim, I am asking for your help to reach my goal of $7,000.00 as soon as possible.
I appreciate the assistance in various forms I've received to date along with encouragement, guidance and prayerful support.
I have no parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or cousins to ask.
Your support helping me to reach my goal will be greatly appreciated. I will pay it forward as I've done in times past.
With a grateful heart, thank you.
