I just want to take the time to ask for a miracle. I have been accepted into college and I am starting October 5th. I was blessed with a Pell grant and financial aide helping me get into this program. The one thing I am needing a miracle on is I have no way of paying for living expenses. I was working before full time but now that I will be going to school full time I am not able to do both.
For many years I have suffered back problems, a horrible burning pain between my shoulder blades. I spent years trying to get answers, but couldn't find a doctor to listen to me. Over the last 23 years the pain has gotten worse (especially in the last 5 years). In 2010 I was working at Wal-Mart and was having one health issue after another from headaches, back pain, shingles, and panic attacks. I did some praying and I quit my job. I went to trade school but was unable to find work. That is when I felt God tell me, "apply for disability and I will carry you through." That was September 2011. So I applied and am still waiting to be approved.
Three days ago my stepdad had another heart attack. This is the 2nd time in 4 months. This morning the doctor called the family in to make final preparations. My heart is so heavy right now. Please keep my family in your prayers.
I want to give everyone that prayed for my prayer request for a broken heart last year appreciation. I was heartbroken last year but this year I am receiving healing and continual healing! God has now blessed me with a boyfriend that respects me and God is working through my current boyfriend to bring healing to the damage of being disrespected that my previous boyfriend caused me. I feel like a princess when I am with my current boyfriend compared to feeling like a slave when I was with my previous boyfriend. God is good!
I know God has been working in my life, and in my son's life. He provided me a job over the summer, so I would have an income. He provided me enough work after the school year started to be able to pay my basic bills (minus rent). I know it's the grace of God that I am still in school and doing good. Still, there are so many needs, so many questions I need answers to, and although I know God is at work, I can't help but wonder if there is more I need to be doing to continue to improve my situation.
