A Promise

(Here is why I wrote this post today. Going through this blog and reading about this sweet little girl getting touched.)

Awhile back ago, (in February?), there was a Ladies Conference in Chula Vista, California at Bro. Buxton's church. Everything that was said was straight to me and I felt a breakthrough with struggles and trials I was going through. Just another AMAZING service with the women in our churches :)

Towards the end of altar call, a lady came up and whispered in my ear and said something along the lines of God hears your prayers and He will answer them. Immediately, I thought of my family that isn't saved. My sweet cousins, uncles and aunts, grandparents..etc.. All the ones that aren't saved..

*You know when you pray for your family, you usually have a couple specific people in mind? I had 2 of my beautiful, younger cousins that stood out in my thoughts.*

God promised me that He would touch them.. And I'm still holding onto that.

One is only a couple years younger than me, and the other is now around 10 years old. They go back and forth between their Mom & Dad's houses, since their parents got divorced. Their Dads (my uncles) are in church and serving God, while their Moms have backslid and turned to the world. They don't get to come to many church services.. So they seem out of the loop, you know? It's heartbreaking

I love these girls so much and want to see them serving God..

Sometimes it seems impossible that God could soften their hearts and put a love for Him inside of them. But I think about what the lady told me and it sparks faith and hope inside of me. God promised me and I'll keep hold of it.

I know God doesn't force His hand upon people, like a gentleman, but I always pray that He would do something in their life that would make them come back to church and get breakthroughs. He knows how it's going to happen, so I'll trust Him and put them in His hands.

God knows what He's doing ♥ All the time.

and maybe they don't have to physically be "in" the church building for God to touch them. maybe it will be in their rooms while there alone or one day when they are spending time with you. Only God knows when and where. He definitely always knows what He is doing <3

Exactly :) I don't care where God does it, as long as it happens. They can be taking a shower, reading a book at home, at a friends house, etc! I just want it done! :) Thank you!

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
