Topic: Laugh On Credit [Our Daily Manna ODM Thursday, March 22, 2018]
Basic Scriptures: Genesis 17:15-27 Genesis 21:1-8
Proverb 17:22 says, “a merry heart doeth good like a medicine.” The world is full of anxiety and prophet Job once said, “Men is of few days (compare to eternity) and full of troubles” Job 14:1, The lord Jesus was blunt as usual: he said, “In the world you shall face tribulations (troubles and trails), but be of good cheer….’John 16: 33.
David was as mild as soda soap in psalm 34:19. “ Many are the affliction of the righteous, but the Lord delivered him out of them all.” So when God decided to give Abraham a son, He called the boy “Isaac ‘meaning laughter. From today’s two texts the family had probably gone through a period of ridicule, while waiting for the promise of god to be fulfill! It took 25 years, but the kept a merry heart. No matter what you are going through rejoice or pretend to rejoice if need be, but don’t die young through tears and anxiety, which can provoke deadly diseases!
Henri Bergson Opined: “Laughter is the corrective forces which prevent us from becoming cranks.” In this year 2018, why kill yourself with stress and worry? Learn to laugh and rejoice and give thanks in all things and refuse to be depressed! Hear William Ward: “to make mistake is human; stumble is commonplace; to be able to laugh at your self is maturity.” Then never forget Chaplin Charlie: “To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain and play with it.” I love those words: PLAY WITH YOUR PAIN!
Laughter is involved in playing! That what Abraham and Sarah did! Play with that pain in your DELAY, disappointments or battles! Indeed, I see laughter as an organism triggered by the intercourse of sense and nonsense! When you cannot make sense of certain events, JUST LAUGH! Even if there is nothing to laugh about, just laugh on credit! Yes, LAUGH ON CREDIT! Laugh in advance! A good laugh heals a lot of hurt! It is sunshine in the house!
Oh, hear the ever smiling Robert Fulghum: “I believed that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history! That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hopes always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believed that love is stronger than death.” Refuse to allow satanic arrow of depression or self pity this year!
