Our Daily Manna Devotional September 23 2017


A 92 year-old woman lost her husband of 70 years and she decided to move to a nursing home. Despite her age, she made up her mind that she woke up in the morning fully dressed by eight o’ clock with her hair fashionably curled and make-up perfectly applied. Just before she entered the nursing home, at the lobby, she was joking and was as excited as an eight year-old girl that had just been presented with a new puppy. Even when she was told that the rooms remaining were not so uncomfortable, hear her reply:

Our Daily Manna Devotional September 23 2017

“That doesn’t have anything to do with it. Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not does not depend on how the furniture are arranged. It’s how I arrange my mind. As I grew older, I already decided to love this place. I have a choice: I can spend every day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work or get out of bed and thankful for the ones that do. Each day is a gift and as long as my eyes open, I’ll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I’ve stored away… just for this time in my life. Old age is like a bank account; you withdraw from it, what you’ve put in. So, my advice to you is to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of life. Be positive!”


Great! No matter how life has been to you, refuse to give up! Be positive like this 92 year-old woman! Note that this world will not get better (Daniel 12: 10)! Problems will increase! Betrayals will skyrocket; disappointments will blossom, but in the midst of all these, listen to Oscar Hammer: “I know the world is filled with troubles and many injustices. But reality is, it is as beautiful as it is ugly. I think it is just important to sing of beautiful morning as it is to walk about slums.”

Hope in God! Be courageous/positive about life! In this last half of 2017 and beyond, your will disgrace your adversaries.
