The Beauty in Staying Busy

*exhausted yawn* 

Do you know the feeling of accomplishment? 
Hint: Usually sleep deprived comes with it. 


My schedule for the past few months has looked like this:

Working 8am to 5pm Monday through Thursday 
Going to school 6pm to 10pm Monday through Thursday 
8 hour internships Friday, Saturday & Sunday

Thankfully, I finished school on August 21st and passed my final exam with a 95% :) I also completed one of my internships that weekend! Yay! (Now, I'm done with internships on Sundays!) I have 60 more hours I need to complete but I will be done by the end of the month! *sigh of relief*

Can you tell I've been busy? I hardly saw family or friends and I was only attending Sunday night services. Trust me, that can take a toll on you. But through this hectic time God had a plan.  


Proverbs 19:15
"Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger."

Proverbs 26:14 
"As the door turneth upon his hinges, so doth the slothful upon his bed."

Proverbs 31:27 
"She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eatery not the bread of idleness."

Idle: not working or active; doing nothing; not spent or filled with activity; not kept busy; avoiding work
Slothful: lazy


It looks like the Bible is speaks clearly about being lazy. I found countless scriptures referring to being slothful and idle. In my eyes, from what I've read, I see that God wants us to be busy. He doesn't want us to sit on the couch and wait for work to come to us. He wants us to go out and be fervent and diligent in ALL things! Romans 12:11 says to not be slothful in business but fervent in spirit and serving The Lord. 

When I finished my classes, I was wondering what I would do with my free time! I didn't want to sit at home and do nothing. I wanted to be out! I started working with my Mamaw in her real estate business as her personal assistant. Soon I will be getting my real estate license as well as my pharmacy technician license. :) 

It's not about making more money, it's about staying busy! When I'm doing nothing, I find myself dwelling on the past and on hurts instead of moving forward in my life. I decided to fill my time. I feel happier. I feel accomplished. 

My advice to you, my friends, is stay busy. Get involved in Sunday School! Work full hours during the week, blog a few nights a week, pray as often as you can, and enjoy the beauty of being busy :)

P.S. This past Sunday was my first day as a Sunday School teacher! :)

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…
