Writing my life story has taken a toll on my mind. I am grieving things I never grieved before and it is as if the Lord is searching every wicked corner of my heart and bringing to the surface all of the things I refused to face in the past. He is purging every last wicked deed I ever committed, opening an abscess that was never drained before, so that I might be healed. It is a very humbling experience to share these secrets with the public, to share them with myself and to share them with the Lord. I know the Lord knows these secrets already because I cannot possibly hide from Him, but to confess them to you and to myself has brought me to my knees with renewed gratitude. I can see so clearly how wicked I was as I write my life and I cry with awe and wonder and amazement and astonishment that He would forgive me and allow me to repent and be adopted into His family! Who am I that the Lord would look down on me, an evil sinner, and even acknowledge my existence?

My prayer is for my story to help you in some small way, to show you how merciful our God is, to help you realize you too can be saved by God’s grace. If you seek Him, you will find Him!

Psalm 14:2
The LORD looks down from heaven on the children of man,to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God.

Psalm 70:4
May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you!May those who love your salvation say evermore, “God is great!”

Psalm 105:4
Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his presence continually!

Isaiah 55:6
“Seek the LORD while he may be found;call upon him while he is near;

2 Chronicles 7:14
if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

  1. Micey, it has been wonderful to spend the last hour or two reading your story.

    I only discovered your two blogs because you linked to my “Pass the Toast” blog, but how glad I am to discover you as a sister in Christ I didn’t know I had. I just love to see the grace of God at work … and I see it so clearly in all that has happened to you.

    And how about this? I have always had a real aversion to tattoos … but I don’t believe I shall any more. I won’t be able to see one now without thinking “The Lord loves Micey and her tattoos …”

    Although we come from different backgrounds and different worlds there are so many points in your story where I found myself saying “Yes, I know all about that …” The need for unconditional love. Judgmentalism and so on.

    I’m so happy that you have been blessed through reading my stuff. I’ve certainly been blessed through reading yours. And I’m adding a link on my blog because I want lots of others to read your story too.

    With love in the Lord Jesus.


  2. Thank you so much Neil for stopping by. I am humbled to know my story can help make a difference in someone else’s life. I am more humbled that God would save a wretch like me. God is so good and I only hope my story will lead others to Him for His mercy and grace! It’s all about Him and it’s all for His glory!

    In Christ,

  3. Hi Micey !!! It is good to see that everything has come together for you !! I remember many of the things you talk about through your journey and when you were dealing with them. Your story made me cry with happiness for you. Here is a verse I like, I will share it with you.

    Psalm: 118:8 It is Better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man .

    You have been truly blessed. May God continue to bless you !


  4. Thank you Micey for sharing your story. You have an incredible testimony. I pray you will continue to feel the love of Christ as you walk through everyday.

  5. WOW What a Testimony to the goodness and love of God—You are a walking miracle and it is so wonderful to see a tranformed life—truly a butterfly in the making. I feel like a butterfly in the making as well just not there yet, but your story has encouraged me and I know God is not through with me—the good work He has started He will complete. Thank you and God bless you. I am a nurse as well.

  6. I have really enjoyed your story. Thanks for sharing it, for reminding me what God has done in m life, and that there are still strongholds I need to surrender to God (in some cases, AGAIN).


  7. Micey, thanks for loving Jesus. You do love Him so much that the annointing hit me as soon as i read the first sentence that you are saved. Do Jesus and us a favor, sister, do not be afraid to take any steps of faith. Your steps are ordered of the Lord. The Word is a lamp to our feet and light upon our path. Thanks for sticking it out for Jesus. Listen for the still small voice. I pray you have ears to hear what the Holy Spirit is saying to you, in Jesus’s wonderful name.

  8. Wow. Thanks for the brutal honesty and the unabashed love for our Savior. Can’t wait to see what other amazing things God does through you. Blessings!

  9. I enjoyed reading your story. To read the story of how God draws His children to Himself is goodness through and through. It’s not just coming to faith in Christ either. He continues to draw us to Himself throughout our lives.
    May God continue to guide, direct, and use you as you walk with Him.

  10. God is great, indeed.
    Michelle – thank you so much for writing your story and sharing it with the world. It is wonderful to read how the Lord has been working in your life and of your love for Him and the amazing power of His redemption at work in your life! I will be praying for you, your sons and your family, that they will love the Lord as much as you do and that they will be set free by the Son… free indeed.
    It’s been so lovely to read your story, my precious sister in Christ. You’ve encouraged me more than you’ll know.
    Love in Christ,
    Lois 🙂
