You'd think i would have stopped posting on here since no one reads it, but i enjoy it every so often. Especially when i'm overwhelmed with our Savior and want to get it out...

i was talking to a friend yesterday... it has been hard for me to see God in my life lately. Not only have i not looked like Him, but i decided that it would be cool to try to figure things out myself. That obviously did not work. Funny how after following Christ for a while i still make mistakes and choose not to trust Christ. i thank Him for His patience with me... and His grace. Where would i be without it?

I was just now reading in John 15...
Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. vs.4

i am nothing without my sweet Savior... and i love that!



trust: 1 a: assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something b: one in which confidence is placed

This is what God has been working on in the life of Meghan Poore. Trusting that He'll bring a job my way, and it'll be just for me. Trusting that He'll bring encouraging friends into my life that are true.

i prayed and have been praying that God would test my faith... scary. But, i want my faith to continue growing. He is so good to me!

Classes are SO hard! i used to love school, now all i can think of is traveling, speaking spanish, and the summer :) i am praying though, daily... that i will not become complacent. i am in Manhattan for a reason!

He is faithful.
I say to the Lord, "You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing."
Psalms 16:2



I love being reminded of God's love over and over.

This weekend was SO good. i was able to go hiking in the beautiful Manhattan hills and go 4-wheeling and hang out with a good friend. i just love it when i see things like nature and relationships and i'm reminded how everything is praising God. It's a neat thing. He is so faithful... even when my car won't start and life seems too much, He is still my stronghold.


From His people who can praise Him... to the mountains that could shout out His name, this remains:
The Lord is so good.
i have a hard time saying more than that, yet i know i could go on for paragraphs and hours.
He places passions and desires in my life. i know they come from Him. He takes people in and out. He allows me to learn through hardships and trials while all the whole promising to never give me more than i can handle.
He calls for my heart... for my life. Sometimes quietly... still. A tiny prodding of my heart. But sometimes it's more bold and strong that anything i've ever experienced. God has been so present in my life this past week. It's like my senses have been made aware. It's amazing.


So i'm pretty sure no one EVER reads this, but i still love on here. . . i had such an amazing day yesterday. i just got to spend a lot of time with more students getting to know them. i love it. i love this summer so much!

There are so many things God has been teaching me, so much more than i want to learn, and a difference i want to make so badly. i have been challenged with so much-even little things have taught me so much. My patience has been tested more than i ever thought it would be. It's so hard to spend time with the same people 24/7 but it's the most amazing experience ever! Well-someone from the church is bringing us lunch in like 10 minutes, better go!


Last night we challenged our students a little and tried to let them experience a little bit of what it would be like to be a Christian in the underground church. i was a persecuter and had to "persecute" jr and sr high students on their way to find the church. . . it was a challenge, but so eye opening i think.

It is still so great to be a part of this family and it has been wonderful to get to know these people better, especially the high school girls, they are all so much fun to be around!!!

i get to go home Monday for the first time all summer and get to see my sister that i haven't seen for about 6 months :( So i am so excited about that!!!


i've been tested and tried more than i thought possible this week. . . i think i'm failing, haha.

i'm kind of joking. . . but it has been crazy. We've been going non-stop for over two weeks. With a trip to Atlanta, which was followed quickly by VBS. It has been such an amazing learning experience to see how i really work under pressure and under such amazing leadership.

Everyone here is awesome, it'll be SO hard to leave in a month and a half. But i am SO greatful for these amazing friendships that i've already been able to make.

Oh one last thing, Emily- i miss you a lot!!!


It's so cool when God puts something on someone else's heart about you and what you've been going through. God chose to place an AMAZING person in my life this summer to learn from and strengthen my faith in Christ. . . So i'm not making any money and living situation is interesting. But i would NEVER trade anything for what i've learned in these 2 weeks. Wow. God is SO GOOD!!!


"You gave out such a delightful fragrance,
and I drew it in and came breathing hard after You.
I tasted and it made me hunger and thirst;
You touched me, and I burned to know Your peace."
-St. Augustine of Hippo

i want to want Him with every ounce of my being.

This summer started out with a journey and i am
so excited to see what He is going to do!!


Be my rock of refuge, to which i can always go; give the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.
Ps. 71:3

What a sweet promise. i love that. love it!!


i get to see the pride and prejudice house!!!

Ten actual days of class left. PRAISE GOD!! i am so excited to go to Missouri, London, go home. . . and hopefully make it to California!! Yesterday was an awesome day. i found out that i'm getting paid to go to school next year. i'm loan free!! Hallelujah.

something crazy that was really apparent to me yesterday was the battle that goes on for my life, my attention. . . Satan and God. Jesus Christ desires me so much . . . yet i choose what i am free from all the time. . .

Some neat lyrics from Casting Crowns:
How refreshing to know You don't need me
How amazing to find that you want me
So I'll stand on Your Truth, and I'll fight with Your Strength
Until You bring the victory, by the power of Christ in me

i love that. . .


Don't be concerned for your own good but for the good others. 1 Cor. 10:24

My new life verse and something i wish i could do well . . . However, i sin and i fail so much! God is amazing and He still amazes me day, after day. Waking up to a sky filled with lightning was amazing today. And when the rain goes away everything is 10 times more green and beautiful than it was before. That's basically all i have to say . . . Just that my relationship with Jesus is SUCH a beautiful thing.

This picture is where i'll be for 2 weeks this summer with my amazing friend Emily!!!


i should start using this!

Have you ever just absolutely had a yes or no from God on a certain situation?

i absolutely love when He give me that overwhelming peace about a certain decision.

God is so good.

Lately i've been looking at all areas of my life and how far i am from who i really want to be. Of course, i want to be Jesus--but i know i could be doing so much more than i am. It reminds me of Romans 7, that which i want to do i don't do . . . it's a recurring cycle, but at the same time i remember that i am not longer a slave to sin. i now choose to sin. How silly of me to choose sin over everything beautiful and right. This is what i have been pondering lately!! A lot has been on my mind.

it has been SO cold lately!!
