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."

This place has become h…
