Fighting Yourself

I have those times where I have beat myself up about things that I know I should have done or a mistake I made. last night...I started to beat myself up (and I am not meaning literally :p I mean emotionally and mentally) about something I've never done but I should be doing. That was reading the Bible all the way through.

Now, if you don't know me, I was raised in this Apostolic/Pentecostal truth. I got the Holy Ghost when I was 8, at Jr Camp :) ....Baptized that September when I came back from camp....And I haven't read the Bible through... Not exactly the easiest thing to confess but I'm trying to give some encouragement and my posts about encouragement come from experience. I want to help someone else out.

Tonight, Bro. Rivers was saying how we shouldn't beat ourselves up about things sometimes. You learn from that mistake and you keep putting one foot in front of the other. Bro. Clark has been saying this a lot lately,

"If you're not into prayer-don't be discouraged!
You WILL get into it!"

Whenever he says that, I'm thinking, "okay! Come on Meagan! You can do it!"

I just had to make up my mind tonight and say,

"I'M DOING IT!!! No matter what!
I'm going to pray.
I'm going to fast.
I'm going to read my Bible!"

If you are getting a little discouraged because you aren't into prayer yet, I encourage you that it WILL happen! Keep praying! Set a time to pray.

If you are getting a little discouraged because you haven't read your Bible through, I encourage you to read at least a couple chapters a DAY. Set an alarm on your phone to remind you to read.

If you are getting a little discouraged because you aren't able to fast, I encourage you to work up towards fasting for a few days. Try a few hours one day and then keep extending how long you fast. You will get it!

Just DON'T be discouraged!
Don't beat yourself up about it!

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." This plac

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 car
