Selected Not Elected

Today May 9, 2016 most of us have practiced or will practice our right to suffrage.  Some or most of us have carefully studied or even scrutinized every candidate before deliberating whom to vote. And most probably some of us at one time found ourselves debating over different opinions. Bottomline is, we get to choose and vote whom we believe is the best candidate for the position.

On another note, there is also a leader who holds a vital position. This leader needs to have a “PhD” in organizing from simple to intricate things. This leader needs a “Masters degree” in management. And on the side, this leader needs a “minor or major” in negotiation. But unlike the president, this leader cannot be voted neither be elected. However this leader is specially hand-picked and selected. This leader is far from being perfect. Yet the Maker is constantly molding, to make this leader effective in her position. And all the more she works better when a prayer is uttered in her favor.

This leader takes charge and manages the household. This leader sees to it that any event, affair or occasion is well-organized and not overlooked. Overtime, this leader has mastered the art of multi-tasking from being a property custodian (knows where anything or everything is placed) to being a personal assistant (checks on bills to pay and arranges schedule of the day). This leader is capable from micro-managing to macro-managing, like seeing things before they happen.  Still, this leader has a flexible heart. She knows when to be stern and when to go soft.

Yet surprisingly, this leader does not expect any recognition for a simple reason – she gives her time and works from the heart.

Oftenly called Mama, Mommy, Nanay or Mamay, mothers are created by God to lead the ins and outs of the household complementing the fathers who heads the family.


Ever wonder how mothers work effectively from the heart? “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength?” (Phil 4:13)

Blessings to all moms!
