Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” – Matthew 19:14, NIV
Lacey Buchanan’s son, Christian, was born blind and with a bilateral cleft palate. When Christian was a baby, Lacey sometimes received unkind remarks and hateful questions from those in public.
Not wanting strangers to be cruel, she began covering his car seat with a blanket and shielding his face from the world. But one day she heard God whisper not to hide her precious child any longer.
So Lacey decided to educate those who remarked about her son. She created a video about his health conditions and how he was “fearfully and wonderfully made” just as he was.
Twenty-four hours after Lacey posted the video, it went viral. Over six million people saw it and a media storm began. She went on to write a book about life with Christian, titling it Through the Eyes of Hope (it’s available on Amazon).
Sharing your testimony online can be a powerful way to encourage other Christians and draw others to Jesus. Don’t be afraid to show the world what God has done in your life!
God, help me to be bold like Lacey was. I want to share what You’ve done for me and how amazing You are with others! Show me how to share my testimony. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
