Feeling Inadequate?

Feeling inadequate?

(Def: not sufficient; unsuitable)

Don't stress..

There are many of us young people who have felt like we were not good enough to give the Almighty God praise because we had done something wrong like sin...

But, I don't want to focus on THAT kind of "not good enough"... The sinning kind.

I want to focus on the feeling of being unsuitable..

(Def: inappropriate; unfitting)

Not being the best or the right one for the job.

Let me say this, YOU ARE YOU and you can be the BEST YOU can be through God. :)

I've noticed that many of us have felt like we don't live up to others standards. For example, my mom was a straight A student, and recently I've had a few bumps in the road that caused my grades to slip a bit. I tried so hard to do as good as my mom did in high school, BUT it didn't happen. I tried to live up to those standards she set and I couldn't make it that high.

It's the same in church and in a spiritual sense. We are not like our neighbor :) or should I say, the person we sit next to in our youth group. We each have different qualities about us..

Which leads me to my point about feeling inadequate. Another person may have a better singing voice, a deeper spiritual insight, or is used mightily in worship... But that shouldn't stop us from singing, from learning, or from worshipping. We each have our strengths AND weaknesses. We each play a part in our church. We can't be discouraged because we can't sing like the girl in your youth group or play the keyboard like an angel..

You are you! And you are the best you can be!

We have a different strengths than the worshipper. We can pray a visitor through to the Holy Ghost. We are prayer warriors. We're a great friend! We're a future youth leader!

When we feel like we aren't the best at a certain thing, remember we ARE the best at something else. The boy in the youth group can play the keyboard best but he needs a little encouragement when it comes to learning about His Word.

So it's time for us to stop feeling like we aren't good enough at a certain thing and remind ourselves that we are the best in another area. :)


Love y'all!

A word from Mom.. I'm sorry! I ❤ you regardless. I guess we can ask ourselves, "will this matter in 10 yrs!" probably not; so you do your best and move on!

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…
