Some good news

I just found that I got my financial aid reinstated from the appeal I made earlier this month regarding the pursuit of a Master's in Information Technology @ CapellaUniversity. Needless to say I was happy ,although I will be on probation for the next quarter which will probably be in the fall if I feel up to it.

Based on my prior posts I am getting treatment for prostate cancer and due to the impact of that diagnosis on my state of mind, my college studies were severely affected to the point of falling below my requirements to receive financial aid . Graduate students have to maintain a 3.o to recieve financial aid and it was going well up until March of this year when I got my diagnosis. I badly need to have some something going on  in my life and going back to college was a great idea. I started in Dec 2006 and it was difficult at first and I failed my first class and that started that process.

My grades stayed above that 3.0 until recently . I failed two classes in the winter and spring quarter so I did take off to concentrate on my health full time and then I got that email from financial aid which I know was coming,since I knew the rule and regulations regarding financial aid for graduate students. I was mentally prepared to fight it since I know it could not be helped although I did try to complete them without concentrating on my disease. But it did not work. So I am stepping back and taking care of my mental and physical state of mind and will probably start back on my college journey in either the fall or the winter quarter.

Time will tell right?

Until next time

Kirk,

Something really stood out to me in this post. It was when you said "I was mentally prepared to fight it since I know it could not be helped although I did try to complete them without concentrating on my disease."

I hope you know I am only saying this because I care...even though we don't know each other. But you said this was "your disease." Cancer (nor any other disease) is NOT your (nor anyone else's) disease. JESUS bore ALL our sickness and disease so we don't have to. Please do not claim this as yours. It is nothing more than a lie from the enemy.

John 10:10a "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy..."

Instead claim your healing..the healing that only comes from the Blood of JESUS and by the wounds on HIS back that HE paid for us thousands of years ago.

Isaiah 53:5 "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed."

I know you will fight and win against this attack...how do I know that? Because it is written in Scripture for all, including the devil to see.

Romans 8:37 "Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us."

Continuing to pray for your victory to manifest in GOD time. Remember cancer is just a name, but there is a Name that is above all names...JESUS!
