I'm Not Far Away-POEM

Honestly, I apologize for neglecting my blog :( It happens once in awhile lol.


So back to business :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Awhile back ago, I was writing a lot of poems.
Pretty much anything from fantasy to reality.
I always loved writing and putting rhymes that make you think or that almost lead you to tears...
Like the spiritual ones that have a lot of meaning to me.
Really... I love it <3

---Here is one---

I'm Not Far Away

Daughter,

You've received the Holy Ghost
And have been baptized in My name.
Yet I have noticed, you are falling away.

You can't make up your mind
About who to serve.
Baby girl, it's Me or the world.

If you let Satan take over...
You're old enough to know
That the place he rules is the bottomless pit below.

However, My daughter,
If you choose Me
You'll be saved from what is unknown
And help Me rule in Heaven
Where there are treasures untold.

Daughter, please make up your mind today.
You know I'm coming.
I'm not far away.

-Your Father, God

This one has so much meaning to me. I had everything bottled up and I let it out on paper (and prayer). My family member.. I'll call this person "Jane" ..can't make up her mind on who to please. It's always between Mom & Dad. The mom is a backslider and the dad faithfully goes to church. Jane wants to please both of them by being in the world with her mom and wearing skirts with her dad... I'm sad that she can't just make up her mind and serve and please God. We always talk to her about it. Almost every time I am with her, it comes up. Is she going to love God more than anyone else??

I'm getting emotional as I write.. I love her so much and I don't want to see her lost... I have faith that through prayer, God will make a way. It's not His will that anyone should perish. So I know that she will be saved.. I cry thinking about it but I know God is doing a work behind the scenes. He always does.


That's why this poem has so much meaning to me.

If you are reading this, I love you Jane

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! :)
