The one thing I've learned...

Put God first in ALL things.

I know it is really simple to say..
But it is much harder to do.

I'm getting teary eyed thinking of people who put God on the back burner.. and the times when I did too. In 7th grade, God was far out of my mind. I went to church, but I was doing what I wanted to do. Not exactly what He wanted.

I cracked mean jokes.
I told lies.
I was in and of the world.
The list doesn't need to go on.

Now, I try so hard to put God first in everything!!
  • How I talk.
  • How I walk.
  • How I dress.
  • My actions.
  • Witnessing.
The list could go on.

It definitely isn't easy but taking it one step at a time, everything is falling in place. My love gets stronger and stronger. Prayer gets longer and longer. My heart gets bigger and bigger.

Leaving God behind leads only to disaster.
I'm always told of stories like this:
"Because (so & so) didn't allow God to be their everything, their life became a wreck. A total mess. Tangled and twisted."

It is absolutely true. Not getting on their face in prayer or listening to Elders warning them, led them into a disaster. Isn't that exactly what the devil wants us to do??

Put God on the back burner...

Shouldn't we want to do the exact opposite?

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 place has become h…
