  1. I realize every time I left the country, I had a job in hand on the other side so I was approved to be there by the UAE; South Korea; Japan; France. It was a lengthy process especially in the UAE. Then when I arrived they scanned my eyes and face as a background check. It was very intense!


  2. Oh my goodness no Susie – could they have not told you this before you quit your job and made all these plans? What took them so long to process the application? I am sorry from afar and wish I could give you a {{{{ hug}}}. Take a deep breath and realize that this was not in God’s plans and maybe it is best you know now before you undertook your journey and studies.

  3. Susie . . . I am so, so sorry to hear this news. My heart plummeted when I read the title.

    Remind yourself, my lovely friend, that there is a reason this has happened, and it’s probably because there’s something better or different being planned for you further down the road, which you might have missed had you sailed through all the things on this current plan you made.

    God doesn’t take things away and leave you with nothing. There is always something which he has planned. But for now … rest. Your heart needs to get over your disappointment, so that you can move on.

    Trust, Susie. Put your trust in Him.
    Sending you my love, and praying for you. ~ Cobs. xxx

  4. I am with LInda. It was hard to “like” this post. I also agree with Cobs that God has something different planned for you. I also know that as it will be His plan it will be perfect and in His time. Meanwhile, I will be praying for you to weather this storm and to be open to His leading. I always tell my husband that it would just be so much easier if God would just write it on my walls or something so I would know what the plan is….but I guess that is where faith and trust comes in.

    1. Dear Faye,
      Thank you. I appreciate your kind words. They mean more than I can say. There is a plan and it will get perfect as I wait. I am glad I have the chance to prove my faith.


  5. Oh, no! How my heart aches for you! You had this dream for a long time, and to be denied at this late date is cruel. I’m sorry I didn’t see this sooner. We were traveling, and we had no internet connection for over two days. I’ll cry with you and hold you in my thoughts and prayers.


    1. Ma’am,
      I have read the Bible to find out words of comfort. I came to Mathew 6, where it says:
      Do not worry about what you will eat and drink or about your body and what you will wear.
      Is not life more than food and the body more than clothes ?

      But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be given to us as well.
      I have read this passage many times before but today it resonated with me.
      I was worrying about my degree and how to get into the bandwagon of academics and the fame it would bring me( shame, I know).
      When I should have been focusing on more important things.
      I was guided through this rejection to things that really matter for life.

      1. Matt 6 is probably my favorite passage in the Bible-I am so glad you are walking in your faith and not needing “sight”. I have been clinging to that verse, myself. The best is yet to come, my friend.. love Michele

    Oh Susie, I just saw this post. I don’t even know what to say. I read all the comments and there is great wisdom in them. My arms want to go around you and hug you…how do you give someone a hug of friendship from afar? Susie, I am praying that somehow you will feel my deep regard for you and your wonderful hopes and dreams. I hope my words in some way will be a substitute for that hug. Kathy


    1. Kathy,
      Thank you, it means a lot. I know you care and that your heart hurts like mine did that day.
      But a remarkable thing has happened since- I read Mathew 6- the part about worrying about what I would wear and what I would eat resonated with me. More important is life and the body. The birds and the lilies( Susan means lilies) are fed and looked after- then wouldn’t human beings be ?
      The only thing needed is to seek the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.
      I am going to focus and pray on seeking the Kingdom of God and his righteousness.
      I was focussing on my selfishness and my interests. I need to put God in front.
      I am fine and back.

      1. Yep… i.m a fan of Gobble.

        I’m sorry you were possibly subjected to the maniacal policies of our Dotard… I know he changed a lot of visa policies… definitely H1B (cause that impacts my line of work) but who knows what else…it’s literally impossible to keep up with (that horrible ‘I really don’t care’ jacket worn by Melania was apparently a distraction from some horrible thing he enacted that day). Frankly, I feel like you might be better off. I wouldn’t want to be a foreigner in the US while he’s Prez. I don’t even want to be a citizen.
