Fear Not.....

Isaiah 43 (New King James Version)

Isaiah 43:1-5
The Redeemer of Israel
1 But now, thus says the LORD, who created you, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel:

“ Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name;
You are Mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.
3 For I am the LORD your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
I gave Egypt for your ransom,
Ethiopia and Seba in your place.
4 Since you were precious in My sight,
You have been honored,
And I have loved you;
Therefore I will give men for you,
And people for your life.
5 Fear not, for I am with you;
I will bring your descendants from the east,
And gather you from the west;

Update on Summer Internship

Well, when I got up this morning I did not what to expect when I was on my interview. I was very nervous and all I could do was pray.  I am happy to say, that I will be doing my internship at Child Abuse Prevention Center. When I first visited the cite, I knew I wanted to do my internship there at CAPC. This agency gives parents the tools to take care of their children, to lessen the risk of abuse toward children. I was told by my interviewer that they make home visits and have meetings. I will be given the opportunity to work with social workers and be assigned a family. I am really excited and I thanks God for this opportunity I will have over the summer.

The website is Child Abuse Prevention Center

Summer Internship

I am going to do my summer internship at a social service agency. I having been searching the Internet to find places to intern. I know that I want to work with children and after doing my search I also want to work with girls and women. My social work  class called Human Behavior, looks at the behavior of infants all the way to the behavior of people in their late adulthood. I have been doing my reports on adolescent girls and on Friday, I will have a project due on Latina women and domestic violence. I think this class has taught me a lot about people and how to better help those who will need help.

But here are my choices of social services, the Child Abuse Prevention Center, My Sister's Place and YWCA. All these agencies help women to better take care of their child, and help women who have been abused. Today, at 12pm I have my first interview at Child Abuse Prevention Center and I am a little nervous. If they accept me to do my internship with them this summer, I will be making home visits and working with social workers. I am just praying and asking God to be with me today.

Father of the Fatherless

My father died when I was eight years old and I still miss him. I wish that he was here with me so I could spend time with him. I have a lot of memories of him, but there is still a part of me that wish I had more time with him. If he was here maybe, I could have father and daughter dates with him. I wish that I could remember the sound of his voice. I wish he was there to protect me like fathers protect their daughters. I could go on and on about what I "wish" because I love him. But now, I run to God as my Father. I pray that God will comfort me in my pain. I just want to have the experience of having a father in my life.

Psalm 68:5 (New King James Version)

5 A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows,
Is God in His holy habitation.
