"My Career can never Give me what God can Give me." Meagan Good.

Actress Meagan Good who has stirred in series of movies in the past few years has made it known she finds fulfillment in God and not in her career. The wife of the Minister and Hollywood movie producer, Minister DeVon Franklin, has been constantly criticised with her controversial way of dressing being a minister wife. Which the husband defended; "I don't have an issue [with her clothes]. It's not about the dress; it's about her heart. And I know her heart is amazing, that's why I love her."

In a Los Angeles Sentinel Report, Good said "I pray and read my Bible every single day, I stay close to God because He's what matters the most; everything else is secondary. My career can never give me what God can give me."

The 34 years old in 2013, starred in the ABC television series 'Deception' which she felt uneasy about. "When Deception initially came to me, I was afraid to do TV because it's a huge time commitment and you'll potentially be playing the same character for several years. And for at least six months of the year you're away from your family in a different state or even a different country."

The actress further revealed. "I had all of these stipulations about what the situation had to be in order for me to do television. When the opportunity for me to star in Deception presented itself, it was everything I said it had to be, so I knew it was God."

However, Deception was cancelled after one season. That didn't discourage her, rather, she saw it as a door of opportunity to explore new grounds. "When it ended, I was very thankful because it created so many other opportunities for me in the process. Deception opened the door for Minority Report as well as my role in Anchor Man 2: The Legend Continues," she revealed. "God wanted me to have those different roles to be able to build a platform where I could be more effective as a Christian. Deception allowed people to see me in a really different light."
She is currently starring in the FOX television show "Minority Report" but had to get used to the idea of consistently working on the small screen after building her career upon movie roles.
Despite all odds, the preacher's wife had faith in God to perfect His work in her."At the time, I had just gotten married and being away from my family I had a lot of time to grow personally and professionally. So I wasn't disappointed when the show got canceled because I knew God had something else lined up," she said. 
"Similarly with Minority Report, I asked God for certain things within the role and it was everything I said it needed to be. It's a testament to not settling. I would rather not work than to do something that I'm not passionate about."

Good Couldn't contain her excitement for her new role in FOX show in which she currently stars, and admits that it has been the hardest project she has ever taken on. While some people may question the direction she is headed, the actress said she is only concerned with where God is leading her.

"I trust God so much that even if my decisions don't make sense to other people, I know that God knows what He's doing," she told the Sentinel.
