Default Travel on J1 Visa without Visa in my passport?

I came to the USA 3 years ago on a J1 visa. I changed my Visa status to F1 here in the states. Now I am going for OPT for one year.I have all my paper, but In my passport I still have my old Visa from the first entry, which is expired. I want to go back to Germany for a friends wedding, but I am scared, that I wont get a new visa at the US Embassy in Germany and I wouldn't be able to come back here. Is there a safe way, for me to travel abroad and be sure to come back here?

No there is not a safe way for you to travel and be sure to come back. There is never any guarentees when it comes to immigration.
To improve your chances of getting an F1 visa to re-enter the United States. Bring with you your grade transcripts, proof that you have both enrolled and paid for your tuition for the upcoming semester, proof that you can still financially support yourself and of course your I-20, which has ben signed by the DSO at your school to verify that you are in good acedemic standing and that they expect you to return after your leave of absense.

All of the above will greatly increase your chances of a successful visa application but again, you are in the same boat as everyone else... there is no such thing as a 'sure thing'.
