The Call Of Motherhood

Motherhood Is A Calling

How many moms agree with me that motherhood is a calling from God? It’s a privilege I believe that every mom embraces with all her heart. Some make this journey look so easy while many of us struggle. Motherhood takes a life time to make its perfection. Sometimes, even at the end of a mother’s life, she has her fair share of regrets and wishes of ‘ it could be better ifs ‘.

Today, I am honoring Lacey Buchanan  for what a dedicated mom she is. The first time I knew Lacey was from a you tube video that appeared in 2012.  Although heart warming, it was at the same time, heart breaking. A mom’s dream for her baby crushed with the birth of her precious baby with his eyes and mouth cleft. But her determination to love and raise Christian was totally admirable. She taught me what the love of a mother could do, absolutely everything that her heart determined would do!

Through the recent years, I started to search for update on Christian’s news. It was a privilege to know both Lacey and her boys on their Facebook page.

Christian who recently turned 4, was a healthy and happy boy. Christian has an adorable younger brother, Chandler. This month, Christian and Lacey got featured on the front page of the local newspaper called THE TENNESSEAN where they live. The article was an excellent presentation of Christian’s story.

Motherhood Is God’s Calling For All Moms.

A Reminder Of God’s Love

This reminds me of God’s love for His beloved people simply because God’s love sees beyond our limitations. It is through knowing and be known by Him that we truly understand what love is. The Bible in  1 John 4:10,  1 John 4:18 – 19 says:

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

 “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.  We love, because He first loved us.”

There is no fear in love. This is because through perfect love we find perfect trust through the eyes of a child and it is exactly how one approaches and understand the things of the Kingdom of God.

In conclusion

The love of God brings out the best in us. Lacey is able to love Christian the way she does, stamps out of her love for God. She is a wonderful daughter of the Almighty. Her testimony is a great example of God’s presence in her life. She chooses to raise her children in the love of Her beloved God that I’m privileged to share with you. With everything that a mother has to go through to raise her children, I have no doubt, motherhood is absolutely a calling from God.



Andrew Chan’s Story

Andrew Chan’s Story

Have you read about Bali Nine death row prisoner Andrew Chan who is waiting for execution anytime from now in Bali? According to the Indonesian Law, drug traffickers face death sentence without pardon.

The Catch here is many of the Australians are pleading for his life. What is so special about Andrew that he should deserve a second chance while others never had that opportunity? So now.. are you stirred to know more?

Should A Second Chance Be Given?

The reason I wrote this article was to bring a comparison between Andrew’s and God’s story. ‘What do you mean’, you asked? Well, here is a story about a criminal who is about to face his judgement, DEATH by law. Should he be pardoned from his death sentence?

Why should he be given a second chance to LIVE? If you read his story, you would know in the 9 years in prison, he became a Christian and his life changed as a result of the Holy Spirit working in him. He was recently ordained as a minister in prison, while serving his time in prison. He led many to the Lord. So is that a good reason to pardon him from his death sentence? What do you think?


Andrew Chan’s Story: Do We Deserve A Second Chance To Life?

Honestly, do we deserve a second chance to LIFE? According to the Law we deserve DEATH sentence.

Romans 3:23 – ‘for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God’  

 Romans 6:23a – ‘For the wages of sin is death,’

You may not believe in the Bible, yet that does not make the statements untrue simply because you do not believe. Now Andrew may not believe his execution is near because he had violated the Bali Law. The truth is whether he personally believe the law or not, he is facing a near death situation.

Do you know God’s story?

Did you know what He chose? He chose to give LIFE. YES, not pardon but gave LIFE. Do you know He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ to die on the Cross to pardon our sins? Do you know what that means? HE sacrificed His only Son, Jesus, to save our lives from DEATH. According to Romans 5:8,

‘But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.’

Does Andrew a criminal deserve LIFE or DEATH? I would like to turn this question around and ask you: “Do you deserve LIFE or DEATH? In God’s story, it is not about whether we deserve to live or die.

The key word is DESPITE what we deserve, out of His love, He chose to GIVE LIFE. Now, if God chose to give us life, who are we to decide if Andrew deserves his death sentence? Let us instead pray for the Will of God be done in Andrew’s life. Today, during service, my Pastor gave these words and it says;

ONLY IN HIS LOVE can you find peace. ONLY IN HIS LOVE, can you find love. ONLY IN HIS LOVE, can you find strength. May I add this, ONLY IN HIS LOVE, can you find SALVATION.

In conclusion

I plead with you to seriously consider changing your perspective on where you stand. Would you choose to embrace the LIFE that Jesus gave you when He took your sins upon Himself on that Cross to save you? Or would you turn a deaf ear to His WORD today?
