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."

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! :)
