    Default School - Please Read/Pray

    So most of you have read my previous requests for prayer that God would provide money for school. And then, most of you probably know that I was effected by the tornadoes in Alabama.

    Well, today is the 3-month anniversary. And oddly enough I found out today from the Dean of my school that there is 0 scholarship money available for me, the hardship application I submitted probably will not yield any funds because I had renters and car insurance and my need for school does not matter apparently in terms of this hardship application, and I still don't have a car.

    I have a roof over my head. I have a ride to work, a full time job. I got an extension yesterday from student receivables saying I have until August 19th to pay or confirm my schedule (show that I have money coming). I had to turn down a job yesterday BECAUSE I was so sure that God would provide the money for school -- and that if I took it and had to quit I would be doing a disservice to the manager who took was willing to take a risk on me to head up a new department. I had potential to make decent money. Now, I don't know where to turn. I've applied for loans 3 times and been denied. I've been told by two people in my department that there is "basically nothing left that we can do" for me, and I need to drop out and work and save up money to return to school. The problem? Within six months I have to start making student loan payments. On a $8/hr job? And pay rent? And save up money for school? And pay about a MINIMUM of 1k per month towards loans? Impossible. I really don't know what to do, ask or say. I honestly feel like the weight of the world is on my shoulders right now. I can't escape it. I know I'll owe money once I graduate -- but at least then I'll have a degree and 6 months to get a job that will help make the payments. If I quit now..I'll never be able to return.

    Pray for me. I know I seem like I'm constantly begging. Probably seem like an emotional sap. (This same prayer request applies to my brother. He's a Sophomore. Just got accepted into a program where he was one or 17 accepted out of 250 applicants.)

    Praying for you bro. I don't know what your situation is like and I can't relate, but just turn to scripture and we find that God already has a plan for us and all thing will work out for good for those who love Him. I'm sure it's probably hard to see that right now for you, but just keep praying and having faith that God knows what you're going through and He'll get you through it.

    Thanks. Lemme say I have calmed down a bit since I wrote this haha. It's overwhelming and burdensome, but deep within it all I'm content within my mind knowing that the Lord will provide and is sovereign over all of this. If I have to be a homeless 21 year old traveling to shelters -- the very breath I take is provision enough. Just a hard pill to understand and swallow, but It will be ok in the end.
