This is Who I am – Nov. 2014

lovecropped-1023141332.jpgquentin

Hello, thanks for visiting! I’m here to walk alongside you in any way. I’m here to share an open heart and acceptance for different feelings from struggles to successes. I have been fortunate for the supportive community we have here! Please connect with me through e-mail if you’d like at faithhopeloveserve@gmail.com .


Who Am I –  What is my purpose – Why was I made – Where should I go next – When will my hopes and desires become reality?

I have asked myself these questions time and time again and quite honestly, it has gotten exhausting. I don’t know the answers to these questions and putting pressure on myself to try to understand such deep-rooted mysteries in life takes away from the beauty in front of me.

Although God’s yoke is easy and His burden is light (Matthew 11:30), my recent journey has felt like a battlefield. A war between my thoughts and God’s plans for me. Every single day, many times, I must remind myself of God’s promises and to rest my soul in Him. (2 Chronicles 20:15-17)

God has plans for me, plans for you. Plans for us to prosper; and give us hope, a future (Jeremiah 29:11). Perhaps we don’t know the specifics about God’s plans for us. If we did know the exact details, how would having faith matter?

I hope to learn more from you and hear your thoughts also. I have learned so much the last few months from the comments people have left on my blog posts. I appreciate you. God has plans for us. Thanks for listening!

Please follow me on Twitter! My Twitter name is @Keepshining516

With lots of love,

Meg 🙂

  49. Hi Megan, I lost you for awhile somehow! I AM an E-BONEHEAD! I’m afraid I have to ask all to bear with me lol. I know KQDuane, and agree it is so awesome to know a woman so young and strong in her faith. I am not at all young any more and just recently (over the past few years) come to honestly, thoroughly believe that Christ loves me. I love how simply you stated that you know not what he’ll call on you for but you know he loves you and you love him. I have so much to learn and must take my time, the Bible has so much and I find I need to really take my time to understand and internalize God’s Word. That is just fine with me, for I am so blessed to have come to trust, my life experience had me feeling as if I were somehow evil and for so long I truly wanted to not believe at all. Thank The Lord, I could not, not believe. I had to make friends with my depression, change my perception of trauma and destruction imposed on me and self imposed, and ever so slowly take the risk of trusting. The Lord carried me, patiently waited for me and kept me alive, surviving all the horror I’ve experienced, and while (of course) I still have moments of struggle and doubt, I now know in my heart and soul that I have a Lord that loves me, that I love, and my faith is now “knowing he will” .I love how you’ve written this post, thank you so much. Grateful I found you again. My blog is titled “reclamation of soul” and I’ve posted but a few times, please check it out if you have time, I keep a log of your scripture quotes so I can study them as my heart tells me I am ready to absorb, as I relate to you greatly and know your references are God’s gift from you to me! Ride those waves of depression, they do suck, but recognizing it for what it is and just riding along makes it pass more quickly and less painfully. With Love and great respect, Sarah

  51. Hello Megan, thank you for the follow and be blessed. The anointing in which ye have received of him abides in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. 1 John 2:27
    You are also His child. His princess. As a child of God you are destined to be conformed to the image of Christ.
    Romans 8:29. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.
