Journal Entry

Today was the day. My release plan is in my hands, excited to show my hard work to my case manager. I step into her office to present it to her, with a smile on my face, and she turns it away. I won’t go into details, but it was a very disappointing outcome. I have my goals, plans, and confidence, only to be turned away with three months halfway house, less than half of what they told me. My stress and anxiety are through the roof since I am going homeless with no address to go to. My friend told me to let God handle it, don’t let the enemy win with all the negative “what ifs”. God will take care of me, as long as I cooperate, work as hard as I can, and believe. It’s unexpected and disappointing, but I know it will be okay.
