School Woes
« on: January 02, 2013, 11:25:49 PM »
While I do not post here very often, I am at my wit's end about my educational situation and could use some support. I am in my final semester of undergrad, but the school has thrown some requirements at me last fall (as a consequence of my transferring there) as a result of their changing the curriculum. Because I am working almost 30 hours a week (on Mon./Wed./Fri.), I was unable to take these courses earlier anyways. I have been working 2 years to put myself through school, but I am becoming increasingly anxious because my school schedule and work schedule will probably conflict. I am already struggling to pay for school at the moment as well. I just want to finish school and move on with my life (I already took an extra year any way out of necessity).

I would really appreciate your prayers. :)

In Christ,
Andrew

Lord have mercy!
We all have an El Guapo to face. Be brave, and fight like lions!

Form a 'brute squad' then!

Lord have mercy on Shlomlokh.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Lord have mercy!
Remember, never to fear the power of evil more than your trust in the power and love of God.

Lord, have mercy!

Lord have mercy!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
