Will I go back to ORU this semester?   Sadness fills my heart as everything in the world is pointing towards a “no”  It just keeps getting worse everyday. Pray for me…I need money. I need a loan that does not require a cosigner.  I need to go back to school.  I am going insane here.  I miss my friends. If there were ever a time I needed encouraging words, the time would be now.

  1.   +HI-1+ that sounds like the same thing i was going through! well first i’d have to ask if you filled out fasfa which probably you did but if not that is where i would start with stafford and perkins loans and pell grants hopefully i helpped some…..but remember don’t worry about tomarrow because God is already there   +SUN+ so if its God’s will for you to go to Oral Roberts than it shall be so…God bless

  2. Jessie, you need to come back. It’s as simple as that. What would I do without Jessie B? God wants you at ORU, so you’ll be at ORU. No worries. Call financial aid, ask to talk to Scott Carr. He’s the director of financial aid, and if there is money available, he can direct you to it. Call my cell if you need his phone #, cause it’s hard to find.

  3. Jess, I know exactly how you feel. I was there a week ago. BUT GOD IS FAITHFUL!!! If He has called you to ORU, He will provide. Read Mark 9:14-29. When we have believed as much as we can, God is there to help us take the next step of faith. I love you girl, and I am praying for you! Stand strong!!!

  4. yo Jess. You know i’m no wise man and you know i’m not the smartest guy out there. You also know that I don’t jsut go n give encouraging words when i don’t feel it or i try my hardest not to be nice to fake it. But right now, we’re both in the same boat. And as scared and freaked out as i feel right now i find security in Christ. I gave up my dreams and hopes to God a couple of nights ago and I found myself in alot more peace than I did before. I was at this hotel fixing a copier with my uncle and this old man was watching a thing on the news about that plane that burned up n no one died and he made a comment that just changed my whole attitude about this. He said ‘boy, it just shows you that when God wants to take you, He just does. I guess He didn’t want to get them yet’ it seems lame and silly to be changed by that phrase, but it just made me think. If God wants you to go back, He’ll send yopu back. if God wants you in La, He’ll keep you in La. As Charismatic Christians we’re used to hearing the prosperity and goodness answer when we have problems, but sometimes maybe that’s not the path God wants to take us through…This being said, i do wanna let you know that I fully believe to see you and give you a big hug [that hopefully won’t be awkward haha] in about 12 or 13 days. God will find a way, He will. But just… never forget that it’s all up to Him. I know you’re not one of those ppl that just worships God cos He gives you stuff, so i don’t mean it that way. This may not sound super duper encouraging… but coming from me, it’s a big deal for me to say that i fully believe i’ll be seeing you in the next couple of weeks. I don’t make grand statements, cos i hate grand embarrassments hah. But I’ll keep praying for and witrh you about this thing, and in the end it’ll be a cool story to talk about. Have you thought about Oh and i found this while googling for student loans for myself: http://www.hesc.com/bulletin.nsf/0/672D5B153831080485256D88006D38DE http://www.slxpress.com/school/malone/http://www.studentloannet.com/loans/sig.htmhttps://www2.usbank.com/cgi_w2/cfm/studentloans/alt_loans/app_home_1_br3.cfm?loantype=NOFEE&SID [not sure if this one requires a cosigner or not]http://www.finaid.org/loans/dunno if it’ll be useful. But it’s just something I’ve been doing recently. Also, if you feel like listening to a good tune, go here: http://www.myspace.com/smooshband n enjoy some smoosh! [theyre not even teenagers, it’s crazy!]love you jess, hope you have a good one. I know everything will be aight, so no worries mate [hehe yea, i had to show off my aussie lingo i tried to pick up… it sounds betyter online than in person haha]

  5. wow that was a long comment. So some encouragement from me… You will go to ORU, and find loans, and other things, God obviously let you in the first time you applied, so i am sure he will this time too. I will pray for you.

  6. Jessie I love you!  I’m praying that you will have strength and peace!  I know that God is working on your situation and I’m praying for you as you watch the Lord work on your behalf!  You can do anything!  Just remember as faith works on your situation patience works on you!  Praise Him for the answer!  I love you and am praying!    +SWIM+ Look its a little Camp Sonshine guy!  YAY!!!

  7. I love you I love you I love you. There has been a lot of encouraging words about ORU already so I will just say that God is in control. and I love you.

  8. Hey Jes! I was just talking to Joy Paquette, the Imago RA, and I was telling her what a gem you are. You are the type of girl that is undiscovered, but once uncovered, is truly a gem. I’ll be praying for you. I want to see you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’ll all work out in the end, even if it isn’t exactly how you invisioned it. I love you a lot.

  9. Jessie you better come back!!! WHat would I do without my neighbor? I know you didn’t go to ORU all three years to not come and finish! I know you’re supposed to be here. I know there is a way and you will know what to do. Just listen to God. He will provide! Love you girl! I can’t wait to see you next week!

  10. hey, i agree with what sarah said.  i told her a few weeks ago that yes the FACTS state that you dont have the money to come back, but the TRUTH is that God is a provider.  Are you looking at the resources or the SOURCE.  I know that my God is not a teaser…He would not put His desire in you to go to ORU only to tease you.  I am not doubtful that i will see your face in the missions office again this year.  One last question for you…did God provide the finances for your whole team to go on missions this year…heck for the whole program to go on missions this year?

  11. jessie berzas…..im so sad if you dont come back… i had so much to talk to you about while laying on the ground at church,…that almost makes me wanna cry,…..:( you better come back….miss you

  12. jessie, have a good season home.  be blessed and make lots o money and spend a lot of quality time with your family and God.  call me whenever. 
    love you tons.

  13. Hey Jessie………..this is Deirdre.  I hope that things work out for you at ORU.  Know that I am praying for you hun.  🙂  +HEART-2+
