Mother’s Day Testimony

Thursday, May 9th, 2019

By Evangelist Alveda King
Civil Rights for The Unborn

Acts 17:26-28 teaches us that God created one human race; and places us in families. We are not color blind, we are not different races. So, it doesn’t matter what color you are, or how old you are, or where you are born. Everyone has a mother; sometimes the relationships are good, sometimes not.

I’ve always thought that my mother is the most beautiful woman in the world. When I was little, I wanted to be just like her. However, God saw fit for me to be born looking like my Daddy; a gift I’ve learned to appreciate.

In 1950, even though my parents were engaged, they weren’t married. Yet they decided to “do things that grown folks do,” so I showed up on their first date they had without a chaperone.

Mama was a freshman at Spelman College, and she wanted to wait to get married. Back then, pregnant women didn’t go to college, married or not. So, Mama got a flyer at school about new “birth control” methods and a procedure called a D&C which were alternatives to unwanted and unplanned pregnancies from the Birth Control League which was changing its name to Planned Parenthood.

Mama’s mother got wind of Mama’s plans and insisted that they get counseling from their pastor, Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr. Granddaddy said: “Neenie, that’s not a lump of flesh. That’s my granddaughter. I saw her in a dream three years ago. She has bright skin and bright red hair and she is going to bless many people. There will be no abortion. We’re going to have this baby.”

Daddy and Mama got married, and I was born January 22, 1951; the first of their five children. The story of my rescue from abortion was a secret for many years. As a result, I misinterpreted family whispers and family secrets, and sometimes felt rejected and became insecure and rebellious at times. Along the way, I slipped off the golden path and had two abortions, a miscarriage and three divorces. God is gracious. I repented and am the mother of six living children; and eleven grandchildren so far.

About ten years ago Mother told me the whole story. We cried and repented and rejoiced together. Today, she calls me her “Angel Daughter,” and I call her the Butterfly Queen because of her love for butterflies. Her favorite memory about butterflies is our trip to Callaway Gardens where a magnificent Monarch Butterfly landed on her outstretched finger.

Mama also has granddaughters and great granddaughters. We spend many fun hours together; cooking, entertaining, shopping, worshipping and praying and just loving each other. I have learned the value of healthy family relationships; how to pray for them and receive them during my years here at BBCC. I thank God that our family relationships are whole and healthy. Amen.

Thank God for Our President’s Prayers: More Hope for Life from Womb to the Tomb

Friday, May 3rd, 2019

“Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14 NLT

May history always remember the day the President of The United States humbly acknowledged God our Creator at the annual National Day of Prayer on May 2, 2019. My heart was filled with love for humanity, faith for a gloriously transformed nation, and hope for a better day there in the Rose Garden of the White House on yesterday.

The sincere prayers of our Vice President and our First Lady set the tone for the impactful message delivered by America’s 45th president; Donald J. Trump. As the President spoke, tears filled my eyes, and during the lovely worship song, I heard myself resounding along with many gathered there: HALLELUJAH!

President Trump reaffirmed “In God we Trust” in so many ways. His strengthening of America’s religious freedom, his affirmation of the sanctity of life from the womb to the tomb, his compassion for those burdened by the opioid crisis; all of which are powerfully blanketed in prayer by those in support of the POTUS agenda, is so very encouraging.

When Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein called President Trump a healer, the resounding amens from among those gathered were remindful of the need of a great awakening. President Trump recently said he believes in redemption. Indeed, God has placed America on a path to redemption.

The Spirit of the Living God is upon many of us, evident in the POTUS delivery on promises of criminal justice reform, economic assistance for everyone, sanctity of life, compassionate humanitarian intervention and so much more.

Indeed, we are red-blooded Americans, endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights. President Trump has rightly noted that we all bleed the same. We must thank God for this insight.

In this light, let’s pray, “against all odds,” for our President, his family, and his valiant administrative team; for their continuing strength and success.

As we remember the ministry of the Prophet MLK, we must come together; as the one blood human race, created in the image of God: we are not colorblind.

Looking ahead to 2020, as we choose abundant life, may we learn to live together as brothers and sisters; so that we do not perish together as fools.

As we are moving forward in prayer, let us continue to pray; to unite in God’s love and mercy. May God bless us to see the day that America is redeemed and whole, amen.
