When He Will Show the "Belt"

God has spared us each time we fell short of perfection. Every time we have sinned against Him. Every time we disobeyed. He never failed to forgive us.. Over AND over again...

We have taken advantage of His mercy.

We have relied on the mercy He would show at the end of this "season" of sin. We expected Him. We had it all planned out too... Go to the altar and pray that God would forgive us of our sinful nature.. But then, we sinned again, the same sin... Again, we prayed but this time we knew He would forgive us, so we didn't pray as "hard" or as "sincere".... We went out and sinned again... The same sin! And every time we went back to sin, we took advantage of His mercy when we came back to the altar. There's the pattern. We sin, we ask for forgiveness but then we sin again. Every time we come back to pray and ask God to forgive us, it's like the Blood/forgiveness/mercy looses it's affect on us. :/ Just like when our bodies get used to (an example) caffeine, the caffeine doesn't get us all hyper-it has no affect.

But didn't we think that God gets tired of us using Him?

One day, He is going to get mad at us.. Like our parents did when we were little. We kept jumping on the couch when we shouldn't have :/ boy... I learned to not jump on the couch! Lol... So why can't it be that way with God? Learn from the mistake and stop doing it. Because one day His mercy won't be shown to us.... and well, God does have a belt doesn't He? Lol

Get what I'm sayin'?

I agree!! Important lesson that's for sure.. Romans 6:1 says shall we continue in sin that grace may about? God forbid!!

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! :)
