Where Have You Fallen?

Mathew 13: 3-9

"And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold a sower went forth to sow;
And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
Some fell upon stony place, where they had not much eath: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:
And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up and choked them:
But other fell into good ground, and brought forth good fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
Who hath ears to hear, let him hear."


Have you fallen by the way side?

The most simple and basic definitions of 'way side' are "being, situated, or found at or along the wayside" and "the side or edge of a road."

To be on the way side is to be on the edge or the border of the world. You probably will have one foot in the world and then one in the church. (Why are you trying to do a balancing act?) We know that in Mathew 7, it states, "...strait is the gate, and narrow is the way,..." So isn't it easy to fall along side the road? The path to an eternity in Heaven?

"The fowls came and devoured them up".... The people of this world, the same people you placed yourself, will 'devour' you. You just can't place yourself on the edge!


Did you fall on a stony place?


You come to service but haven't gotten REALLY "grounded" in the church. Sure, you know there is ONE God, you can keep the standards pretty well, and maybe you haven't even got in trouble by Pastor! But your roots aren't deep in the 'soil.' Once the sun starts to creep up and the pressure of the your trial starts to become a little too much, you [will] wither away (backslide). All because you never established yourself and don't have it in your heart.

Wither: to lose the freshness of youth ... to shrivel; fade; decay ... shrunken, or dry, as from loss of moisture

Are you among thorns?

You've placed yourself right in the middle of the world. They overtook you and took all of your needs to survive! Maybe you thought you could handle having 'worldly' friends. Obviously, you thought wrong. Every ounce of water and every pinch of good soil was taken out of your hands. You have nothing left to live off of. The thorns have choked you.

Or have you been sown on good ground?

You have all the nutrients you need. (Prayer, the Holy Ghost, baptism in Jesus name). Your roots are deep in the soil. When that trial came, your roots didn't fail you! You have brought forth good fruit :)

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! :)
