Pity Party for One, Please

We all have them… the occasional pity party. If you read my last blog post, Calling All Control Freaks, you would have gotten a small glimpse into my most recent pity party (20 minutes full of drama and crocodile tears). Today, I want to take you a little further into my tantrum and a little deeper…

Calling All Control Freaks

Don’t pray if you’re not ready for God to answer. Let me say that again for the people in the back… DON’T PRAY IF YOU’RE NOT READY FOR GOD TO ANSWER. Picture this. It’s a normal, relaxing Saturday afternoon. I’ve finished my homework early. I have free time on my hands, and I’ve just spent…

I Wish I Was More Like HER…

As I was exercising out on our property yesterday, I found myself daydreaming of many things but mostly of warmer weather (my old sports injuries have a tendency of acting up in colder weather!) And daydreaming of warmer weather brought my mind to summertime with weather in the 90s and laying out by the pool….

Date Night

Welcome back to the regularly scheduled programming, as my friend Megan says. 🙂 As I was praying about what to write for today, I kept thinking about the words “date night.” Before we get in to what the words “date night” have meant to me lately, I want to remind you of an earlier message….

Silent Wednesdays

Hello! Welcome to this blog, which is not written by Macey. Sorry to disappoint you all this time around, but I am a guest writer. My name is Megan, very nice to meet you! When my best friend asked me to be a guest writer on her new blog, I was super excited. For years,…

The Secret to World Peace

I know y’all… Y’all come here every time… thinking what will she say next? And I know the title has you intrigued. How can a “no-name” girl from South Georgia have the secret to world peace? I believe the secret to world peace is actually very simple, and yet so very complex. Before we dive…

Faith to Get through the Fog

If you’re new to Macey’s Place Online, welcome; if you’ve been here before, welcome back 🙂 If you have taken the time to read previous blog posts (and I hope you have or you will), you’ll notice that this blog post will be slightly unconventional from the “norm.” It’s Friday. For most of us, it’s…

Everything’s Not Fine, & I’m Not Okay…

*Picture above is not mine* Everything’s not fine, and I’m not okay. I’m a failure. Others would be better off with a different girl as their daughter, sister, sister-in-law, friend, counselor, future girlfriend, and future wife… anyone but you, Macey. I’m worthless. I can hear y’all now. “Whoa… where is this coming from, Mace?” Recently,…

Open Heart Surgery

All roads lead to Jesus, but not all roads lead to salvation. My pastor made this statement this morning at church, and I had to pause and think a minute. Ok… I had to think for more than a minute… more like several minutes. What in the world does that mean, Pastor? After a few…

Be Mine, Valentine?

It started the day after Christmas, right? Green, red, silver, and gold glitter from Christmas decorations were still sparkling on the floors of stores everywhere when the first “heart” was spotted. The advertisements began then and have been endless since…. chocolate and other kinds of candy, cards, flowers, gift certificates for massages or pedicures or…

Can God Really Be Trusted?

I find myself asking this question quite frequently. I may not say it out loud because… well… that goes against who I should be as a Christian. The very fact that I call myself a Christian means that I’ve trusted Jesus as my Savior. But when it comes to life… when it comes down to the…

“Dear God, thank You for this day and everything You’ve given me… and oh by the way, give me some more while You’re at it.” 

Hello again, if you’re following Lumber City Baptist Church youth’s journey through Finding I AM by Lysa TerKeurst! 🙂 Today’s blog focuses on the feeding of the 5,000–a miracle that’s recorded in all four Gospel accounts of Jesus’ ministry (John 6:1-15, Mark 6:30-42, 49-52). As I was reading the Scripture passages and reviewing my participant…
