For my entire life I always wondered how I would know when I met ‘my person’; when I would meet my so called ‘soulmate’. The truth is that person didn’t show up until I stopped trying to find him and started letting God lead the way.
All throughout high school I longed to have a boyfriend. I thought I knew what I wanted in a man and tried my best to find him. Here’s a tip: just because you like someone does not mean it’s a sign that they are meant for you. The reason I say that is because that’s what I always always always thought. “Oh, I like him so that must be God telling me something”. No. The person God made for you will show up when you least expect it. God sent the person he made for me when I was confused and hurt because these guys that I thought God sent to me didn’t want anything serious and I thought they were just playing hard to get with me. God knew exactly what I needed and he sent him at the perfect time in my life. At first I do admit I tried to push him away because I was stubborn and wanted what was bad for me. However, I’m truly blessed that God told him to continued pursuing me. Thank you, Jesus.
Trouble choosing a career path happens to basically everyone. You ask yourself so many questions; Am I really going to enjoy doing this? What if I hate this path I’ve chosen? How am I going to serve God through my chosen career? Yes, we’ve all been there. I recently had this internal battle.
Ever since I was about 11 years old, I’ve loved everything about beauty; makeup, hair, the whole nine yards. So what did I choose to study in college? Cosmetology. No brainer right?
Well, amid my recent conviction, I was stuck. I felt like there was absolutely no way I would be able to serve God through Cosmetology. I was asking myself millions of questions daily. I thought of so many other careers that I thought God would want me to pursue because I felt like I could serve Him better through them. However, that’s not the case at all.
God’s word can be shared in so many different ways. You don’t have to have a job in the church to serve Him. For example, one of my goals after I get my Cosmetology license is to volunteer at a nursing home and do hair, nails, and makeup for all the old women. Serving others that can’t help themselves and making them feel good in their own skin is something God would want us to do. God isn’t worried about whether you’re a cosmetologist or a nurse or even a cashier. All He wants for you is to trust in Him, love Him and share His word with others. Being convicted by Christ was the best thing that ever happened to me, and if I can get others to give themselves up to Him through my career, that’s enough for me.

Hi! My name is Megan! I am a 19 year old college student! In no way have I ever been a writer, but I felt like God wanted me to use this website to share the gospel. I’ve had this account for quite some time and never used it, so it was the perfect place to spread his word!
