WINNIE MANDELA: DETERMINATION AND HOPE

 

Basic Scripture: LUKE 8: 5-15

Nelson Mandela, who was then married to his first wife, met Winnie at a bus-stop in Soweto when she was 22. They got married in June 1958, but he soon went underground, pursued by wicked Apartheid authorities. It was her political awakening, especially her research work in Alexandra township on infant mortality, that discovered 10 deaths in every 1,000 births.

But Nelson and Winnie later got divorced in 1996 after a legal battle that revealed her affair with a bodyguard. Despite all her battles and imperfections. (none of us is perfect), history was however made at Wits University’s Great Hall stage on May 17th 2006, when the 75 year-old ex-wife of Nelson Mandela, Winnie Madikizela-Mundela, popularly called, “The mother of the South African nation,” graduated with a Bachelor of Art degree which she had enrolled in since 1967.

The story is not that she graduated. No! The story and the glory is that, despite the many obstacles on her pathway and despite her age and the fact that it took her 39 years to graduate, she finally graduated: I remember the story of another woman who was in a COMA for 42 years but woke up and is alive! Call it determination or aggressive persistence and you would score an A+”.

In this second half of 2019, the LORD is asking a user of today’s devotional to be focused on his/her life’s goals/ambition, no matter the many obstacles challenging your determination. Hear Margaret Thatcher; “I am extra-ordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end.” Jean de la Fontaine penned: Patience and time do more than strength or passion.” Then Jacques Rousseau hit the nail on the head: “Patience is bitter, but its fruit is Sweet.”

The LORD Jesus said that you can only bring out your fruit with patience (Luke 8:1-5)! No matter how 2019 or your past has been like, refuse to give up! Who told you that the road to success is paved with gold. Mr. Ulysses Grant failed as a farmer, a real estate agent, a U.S. customs official and a store clerk, yet he became the 18th president of the United States of America in 1868. No matter how many “bears” or “lions” are confronting your life’s journey, if you hold on to the God of David, you will sit on your throne and become a worldwide testimony. Remember the late 75 year-old woman: Winnie Madikizela-Mandela! Put on determination and hope! Look up to God daily! Your new name will be “BLOSSOM!”
