And sometimes, things come up from nowhere and surprise you.
Roman was supposed to go back to school this semester for one more class. He missed out on a job opportunity this past spring because he was missing a class. We had resigned ourselves to the fact that Roman didn't have a job yet because God wanted him to return to school to get this class so he could get a job in Moultrie. We were at peace with that. We were okay with that.
And then BOOM!!!
The whole plan implodes on itself and you're standing in the middle of it all going ..."huh?"
Roman went to financial aid today to increase his student loan. He had maxed out on the HOPE scholarship and had a small student loan from last semester. We figured we'd just increase it to pay for this last class.
My phone rings. It was Roman. Apparently, there is no option of a student loan for him because he is already graduated. He would have to enroll in a new degree and take six hours worth of classes (the class he needs is only four) to get a student loan. The only way he's going back to school is if we pay the $1,000 + up front (which in case you haven't figured out already, we can't afford). The option of going back to school is off the table (unless we get a check in the mail by Monday for over $1,000).
So now my husband and I are left wondering what in the world God is up to. It is strange how you can be so sure of what God's plan is only to have a change of plans. This is the second time this year that this has happened to us. It definitely throws you for a loop, that's for sure. But I know God has something up His sleeve and I'm still going to trust that He knows what He's doing.
Sheeeesh. I don't know how people make it through life without Jesus. Seriously.
So yea.....pray for us some more? ;)
