A Peculiar People

I'd like to mention a couple things before I start writing the rest of this post:

Sunday morning, Bro. Bobby Lewis, a missionary from Ireland, preached "Everything." Sunday night, he preached "A Peculiar People." Both services, he was led of the Holy Ghost. It was just so amazing!

One scripture that he quoted for in the night service was 1 Peter 2:9..."But ye are a CHOSEN generation,"...*SHOUTS and JUMPS!*...he says, "Now, we can worship on just that!"..."a ROYAL priesthood,"...he shouts, "We can worship a little more with this!"..."an HOLY nation,"...shouting, "We can shout more with that! But here is the verse where it gets a little quiet sometimes"..."a PECULIAR people;"...

And if you know my church, you just KNOW that we were going crazy by this point! WILD and jumping and shouting!!!!!

He went on talking (more like shouting lol) about why people may think WE are the ones who are odd, peculiar, a "weirdo."

~running the aisles
~jumping
~shouting
~Holy rollin'
~dancing (in the Spirit)

ALL kinds of things! He said, "Well! You know what!? I'd rather be in church than getting drunk! Than getting shot up with all those drugs! I roll on Holy High!..." (something along those lines lol)

Bro. Lewis then showed us a picture he found when he search "peculiar."


And he told us about Job and how the devil asked God to remove the HEDGE around Job because he couldn't get him on any side! God's circle around us is so strong! Bro. Lewis was preaching that when the devil starts trying to discourage you by saying, "Your children are going to backslide", "you are going to lose your job", "you won't have any money"...(etc.) IT IS BECAUSE THE DEVIL CAN'T TOUCH YOUR CHILDREN, HE CAN'T TOUCH YOUR JOB, AND HE CAN'T TOUCH YOU! The devil is a LIAR!!! YOUR KIDS WILL STAY IN CHURCH, YOU HAVE YOUR JOB, AND YOU ARE STILL LIVING FOR GOD! And if you do find yourself facing a problem, GOD ALLOWED the devil to touch you! It's in the (God's) circle around you so that means that problem is controlled by God!

He quoted MANY other scriptures about God's mercy, truth, a HEDGE around us!

So many things happened in the services! TRULY AMAZING! Thank you Jesus!!!! I can't explain everything he preached and everything that took place but I highlighted a couple points.

And at the end of the service, I just felt God's calling...Now, that is a whole other post...that is going to take much prayer and fasting :) so stay tuned :)

*I'm sorry but I'm not giving these services enough justice lol it's a "you had to be there" service (like all services). You can't explain it enough...and this is a little reminder of what took place tonight! A little memory saved on my blog :)*

Where have I been?

Has it really been almost 2 years since my last post? So much has changed.

(Honestly, I am updating my blog because I like to reflect back on how far God has brought me. Forewarning, don't read if you don't want to take a look into my life the past year. This blog has many memories and I want to add on to it.)

2 years seems like a lifetime ago. I was hurting, broken-hearted, uprooted, and quite frankly, needing God more than ever. I questioned everything I was taught and needed answers, but thankfully, there was one thing I knew for sure...

God had plans and He would be all I needed.

Fast forward to October 2017 and I have lived in the state of Washington for a year, moved into my dreamy studio apartment in August, and I work in beautiful northern Idaho making & working more than I would have in Southern California. Who would have thought? Little Miss Meagan, moving 1.300 miles away from her family because God opened doors and said, "Come."

The Struggle is Real

I am not usually the person who spreads their woes on Facebook, Instagram, or blog. Tonight may be the exception but I will refrain from letting emotions get the best of me.

We are all facing trials. Whether you are 16 years old and tempted to cut your hair, 18 years old and thinking about leaving the church since you are technically an 'adult', 21 years old and being pressured to drink, or 24 years old and struggling with hurt and depression.

The struggle is REAL!

The truth is, we are all at different points in our walk with God and, believe it or not, the trials are ALL God-ordained. They have been put in our life specifically for us and to make us more like Christ. The struggles you are facing are a test of your faith and love for God, but they are also there so you can learn from your mistakes and help others when they go through the same trial.

Honey, if you are dealing with hurt, I could quote scripture after scripture giving you encouragement and to cast your cares on Go…

Don't be ashamed

Since my previous post, Walgreen's called me in October and offered me a Pharmacy Technician position! How amazing is that?!  I was so thankful to get hired by my intern site because I knew the patients, the daily routine, and they already felt like my work family.

When the time came to order my scrubs, there was no way I would wear their scrubs pants and I spoke up right away. I told my manager, and guess what? He sent out an email, and it was approved for me to wear a scrub skirt. Let's just say I was the first for them :) but I get so many compliments at the pharmacy! So many of my patients have come in and commented on how cute it was, how they haven't seen a scrub skirt, didn't even know they made them. And OH MY GOODNESS, the compliments on my hair! LOL!

Let this be a reminder for all the girls - all my friends - don't be afraid or ashamed of what (and Who) we stand for! You are a light! :)
