And we all, with unveiled face,
beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same
image from one degree of glory to another.
For this comes from the Lord
who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18
Every Fall semester, my college has what they call "Deeper Life Series." A speaker comes in and preach on a particular topic.Charles O. Galbreathis from a Brooklyn, NY church and he talk about fear. I feel like "fear" and "anxiety" were my best friends or should I say my worst enemies? I would let worries and thoughts fill my head of "what ifs" or "this will never work out". At time I could feel my heart pounding as I thought on "things" like not being good enough for a job, getting through another semester, an exam, or my grades, sickness in my family. I could go on forever, I had a lot on my mind that could go wrong or has gone wrong in my life. Every time and I mean every time, I worry I had an headache that I could not get rid of.
I do feel as Christians or people in general, when we continue through life, we start to change if allow "transformation" to take place. I have notice in my life that a lot has chan…
Over the summer, during my internship I learned a lot about violence and the injustice of the "system."
I am thinking of a statement I heard in Boyz in the Hood , "I saw on TV about violence overseas but in my hood there is violence. My brother got shot yesterday and it will never make the news" Either they don't know, don't show, or don't care about what's going on in the hood. They had all this foreign sh*t. They didn't have sh*t on my brother, man. (sorry for the curse words, for those that are offended).
I was also thinking of when Christians decide to go oversea to tell of the Good News of our Savior Jesus Christ. I see nothing wrong with that, I just pray and hope we don't neglect the poor and violent neighborhoods that are in America.
I think of communities that are look down upon because of the way they look from the outside. They are run down, poor people, drunk people, people that do drugs etc. I heard from a staff member over th…
The first week of college is over. I have many thoughts running through my mind about this semester.
I think during this semester, I will have less stress then my previous years in college. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays are my free days. Most of my classes are either on Monday and Wednesday. I don't work weekends, which gives me even more time to do homework. But I am excited about finishing the last of my social work classes. I am taking Policy, Statics II, Social Work in Christian and Leadership and Development class.
I have to say, I LOVE my room. It is big and I have a ceiling fan. Only thing that is different from my previous dorm, is I don't have the view of the river. Which can look like this in the morning:
I am excited because soon I will be applying to grad school. I have chosen University of Maryland, in Baltimore, Temple University, Morgan State, and Clark Atlanta. I do know I want to move to Maryland, so I am hoping to get into a school in MD. Only time will t…
Yay I am happy to be back at college. I moved in yesterday and I am excited because this will be the last semester. Classes start on Wednesday and I can't wait to see how the classes will be. I am praying that I will do well in all my studies. I have A LOT of free time and I need to make sure I am on top of everything and not be lazy. I think I will spend most of my time in the library doing homework to make sure I am not distracted and fall asleep on my bed. Three of my classes are social work subjects and one is a leadership and development class. Sometimes social work classes can be intense but I hope I will still have fun learning. Another thing I will be starting, is my Grad School applications to receive my Masters. I know I will not be entering Grad School until the Summer of 2012 but I am already excited about a new direction in my life. I also started work in the cafe and it was great. My colleagues were awesome and very helpful. I think this job will be great and help me…
