How a Double Cheeseburger Affected my Relationship with Christ

It was sometime in May of 2017. I had just gone to one of my favorite fast food restaurants and ordered my “regular:” a double cheeseburger with just cheese {extra cheese}, a large french fry, and a large caramel mocha coffee with whole milk (I should probably insert here that I’m lactose intolerant–why does dairy…

The Godly Practice of Living in The Present Moment — Paradigm Shift

I do a lot of my living inside my head: I’m a daydreamer with a big imagination. This is both good and bad. It’s great when I’m trying to plan something, when I want to work on the next chapter … via The Godly Practice of Living in The Present Moment — Paradigm Shift

How to Be a Christian 101

If you follow my Macey’s Place Online Instagram page (the handle is @maceysplaceonline if you want to check it out!), I recently posted about a new method of Bible study that I’ve been doing as I am reading through the book of Romans.

How Much Does a Soul Cost?

Hello again, friends! If you’ve been following Macey’s Place Online for the past few months, you’ve read that my word for 2018 has been this one: CONVICTION. God has been doing such a work in my life since I became a Christian seven years ago, but He has been doing an immense work in my…

Spiritual Starvation

As a school counselor, I am often asked to speak to young boys and girls about several “uncomfortable” topics.

To the Girl who feels Worthless…

To the girl who feels worthless, I hear you. I see you. I counsel you. I truly empathize with you because… At times… I am you. In the society in which we live, it’s hard to feel worthy, valuable, good enough, and loved—especially as women. One scroll through Facebook and Instagram and the single woman…

God Always Answers

Just Give Me Jesus

I couldn’t honestly say the words in the title a few months ago. Why? Because I wanted other things besides Jesus… He wasn’t “first place” in my life. He was more towards fifth or sixth place. So… those words… “just give me Jesus” weren’t an accurate statement of my spiritual life. A more accurate statement…

Enslaved to Shame

As I reflect upon my testimony and as I outline in my mind those series of messages to share in the future, one theme has been a constant at each step: shame. Before I was a believer in Christ…. shame. After I became a believer in Christ seven years ago… shame. Still to this day……

Changing Generations

If you’ve read my last blog, Testimony Time, then you’ll understand why I’ve been in a reflective mood recently. The events of the past couple of days have encouraged me to look at God’s faithfulness in my life, both before and after I accepted salvation. One day, I hope to share my entire testimony with…
