A Need

I need prayer.

Without going into a lot of details:
I visited the Business Office at my school. They told me I owe more money---money I honestly do not have---than I was told I would have to pay. What makes me mad is I went up to the school this summer to find out where I stood on aid this year. They told me an amount that I was able to work with. I insisted that they tell me that nothing would change. I informed them that there was NO WAY I would be able to return in the fall if my balance would be any higher. They assured me I would be okay.

Am I okay? No.

I don't know what I am going to do. I can't pay it and I am unable to register for my final semester of Senior year until my balace is below a thousand.

I am trying hard to keep the faith. Growing weak is where I find myself. That is why I need you. p

Please lift me up while I cling to 1 Peter 5:6-10,

"Humble yourselves therefore, under God's mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. Be self-controlled and alert, your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To Him be the power for ever and ever. Amen."

Though I am weak, I stand firm in the Faith.

In His Name,
Jennifer

Well I'm praying for you and I hear Australian prayers stand pretty good with God.

Good to see that you turning to God and seeking to trust Him even if it is frustrating and not what you had planned. If anything may God just grant you a deep peace that He is in control.

Thank you very much....I'm sure Australian prayers are more easily heard. haha

God has been really good to me. He is working out the details.
