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. One of those topics is eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia, the signs and symptoms as well as the potential consequences of such actions. The conversations aren’t easy ones to engage in. However, the conversation must…

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

Hello there, friends! The craziness that is life has finally slowed down, which means regularly scheduled blogs are coming back your way! Just as an update into what I’m currently studying and reading, as each play a part in today’s post… I’m studying the book of Romans and just finished Romans 8. I finished No…

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…

Testimony Time

As I prayed about the blog post message for tonight, God clearly said change it up. Tell them your testimony from the past couple of days. So, today, I want to just show you how awesome God is and how He speaks… right now… in 2018. If you know me personally, you know that worry…

God wants you to be uncomfortable…

I listened to a message by Pastor Steven Furtick recently, and he spoke about comfort zones. He talked about how God’s people tend to make excuses instead of being obedient to what Christ tells us to do simply because we’re scared we’ll leave our comfort zone. I’m not sure that any of us truly LOVE…

New Creation

As I pondered what to write for today, it seemed like a million “messages” came to mind. Ideas flitted through my head, yet I couldn’t seem to “catch” the one I wanted. I would pull out my laptop or my journal, but the words wouldn’t flow. The cursor blinked back… taunting me. The pencil hovered…

The Backbone of It All

Welcome back for part three of my back injury saga. 🙂 Before I get into what I believe to be the spiritual “backbone” (get it?! backbone?! back injury?! punny!!) of this Christian life… for new and returning readers, let me give a recap of what I’ve learned thus far, and in turn, have shared with…
