The aim of A Manifest Life is to show that every child is a creation of possibilities.
As we respond to the most vulnerable among us, our life is made manifest to all. It doesn’t matter what our condition or state may be, we all have A Manifest Life that is seen by both the creation and the Creator.
We will make life manifest through practice (what we do), patience (what we say), and through preservation, protection, provision, and perception (what we believe – standing up and revealing the lives of those who are the least among us, and who are unobserved, and go unacknowledged in our world).
Through the efforts of A Manifest Life we will strive to reveal that part of life that usually goes unobserved by Practice, Patience, Preservation, Protection, Provision, and Perception.
The focus of A Manifest Life is on the possibilities of every child by working in the following area’s;
1. Mother’s with challenging pregnancy decisions.
2. Infants and children with complex birth issues.
3. Infants and children with multifaceted care requirements.
4. Families without father’s.
5. Children, women, and men living in socially unique circumstances.
The emphase of A Manifest Life is on the work of revealing the possibilities that are created in every child in 3 distinct ways:
1. In Us – We reveal whether the life in us is of God or of this world by what we do for others.
2. In Others – We can encourage the life in others through understanding, communication, education, inspiration, and kindness, and also through determinations, choices, and ultimate decisions.
3. In children – Life is created in the world to be preserved, protected, and provided for for the least among us.
The method we use at A Manifest Life to discover the possibility of children is accomplished in the following 7 ways:
1. Availability; without judgment (Jn 4:3-4)
2. Publicize; to those in need (Jn 4:5-6)
3. Engagement; publicize our mission (Jn 4:7-8)
4. Tolerant; Non-judgmental to all who need help (Jn 4:9)
5. Encouraging; See the possibilities of all children (Jn 4:10-14)
6. Concurrence; Set a course of action and offer advice (Jn 4:15-28)
7. Revelation; Show the positive outcome of saving a child (Jn 4:29)
This is the scriptural foundation for the mission of A Manifest Life.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex (frighteningly unique)!
Your workmanship (craftsmanship) is marvelous (miraculous)—how well I know it.
You watched me as I was being formed (put together) in utter seclusion (a protected place), as I was woven together (embroidered) in the dark of the womb.
You saw me (my being) before I was born (formed).
Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.
“For everyone belongs to me, the parent as well as the child–both alike belong to me. The one who sins is the one who will die.”
Both the parent and the child belong to God. Though an unborn child has committed no sin, we are all conceived in sin (Psalm 51:5). If the child didn’t have an opportunity to hear the Gospel in this life they will hear it in the next, Isaiah 54:13
