I am feeling really angry today. I can't believe what this board has done. They have the right to raise the rent as high as they want, but give me thirty days notice. It's going to cost me two hundred dollars for rent, where's the money going to come from. Is this what they do to someone who has paid their rent on time? I think that should have given me more notice.
I didn't ask for this change. I know what I am about to say is unrealistic. If I was allowed to present my case to the board. I would have asked for more time. I would have told them I think that their business plan is flawed. Prior to last October there had not been a new tenant in the past two years. There have always been vacant apartments in this building, so why would they want to loose a renter that has always been on time. Lord, I wish my voice could have been heard before they made this decision.
Lord, thank you for the twelve years of cheap rent, but I'm also afraid because I've made some financial mistakes. The one thousand dollars it spent to replace the alternator on the Mercedes, I bought just about wiped me out. I would have been better for me to have owned a Kia.
I was negligent, when I didn't watch what my stock broker was doing. As a result, I lost fifty thousand dollars.
I left my job as an AV technician over a dispute with another employee. I should have stayed in my field. Now no one will hire me because I've been away from the industry too long. Lord, I repent that I wasted my abilities, you gave me.
Lord, I know that you've forgiven me. I don't deserve what I have. I deserve to be homeless. I ask for your mercy and that you would help me. You've said that you will supply all of my needs. I can't afford this increase. I could be on the road to homelessness, but I know you can intervene and save me. You have helped reduce my expenses the past twelve years. I know you can help me again. I believe that is part of your plan for my life.
Lord Jesus, I love you, in Jesus name, Amen.
