Awarded a Scholarship towards my next class, but might have to turn it down because of unpaid balance

As some of you might know, I am taking classes at Liberty University towards a counseling degree, so that I can serve God in providing counseling and therapy full time. I applied for a scholarship through my present career’s employer and got awarded a scholarship to pay for both tuition and books. I plan to take the Group Dynamics course during the winter quarter. Taking this course will propel me to a new level, not only getting me closer to my next career, but also giving me promotion potential in my current career. I was just praying last week, because I saw one of my FaceBook friends serving with her Golden Retriever in ministry full time, I long to join her ranks. As if on cue, the phone rang and it was Liberty University rep telling me I have until December 31st to register, but that my balance would have to be paid off, even before I would be allowed to pay for the next class in full. I was turned down for a scholarship for the previous class, because it was not relevant to my current career field. I decided to take a leap of faith and take it anyway with the terms that I would pay it off in a year. This scholarship opportunity was not expected, but I applied for it not knowing that I couldn’t even register for a class even if paid for completely unless I had the previous balance paid off. I just got the scholarship award letter two days ago. I know it is meant to be for me to have this class and that it is God’s will for me to take it. I need help paying off what I owe for the last class I took. I cannot fathom telling my employer that I will have to forfeit my scholarship. I need to take this class. I am determined to raise the money I need so I can take this class. I am being like the widow begging the judge for justice. I have already paid $600 towards my last class and I only need $900 more. I will not give up, until I raise the money I need for this class. I know that where there is a will, there is a way, and that God can make a way where there seems to be no way. My future depends on this class. I have to take it. I cannot bear giving it up. Will you support me? Taking this class will go a long way towards getting me closer to my goal of serving with Mercy and/or my next Golden Retriever full time. I have faith that God will come through, but I will need cooperation from kind, caring compassionate folks like you, so that I can therefore pay it forward and help others in need as well. Having my previous balance paid off so I can take my next class would be a wonderful Christmas miracle gift. My fundraiser site is: http://www.gofundme.com/Collegeclass
