Here's a little testimony about God's bountiful blessings in my life.
On Sunday during offering time, I looked at my wallet, I was only left with a RM20 note and a few RM1 notes.So instead of giving the rest of RM1s, I choose to give RM20.
At that time I just felt like giving, nothing much.
The next day which was yesterday, I was told that some distant relatives from Perlis wanted to treat us dinner at a local seafood restaurant. They wanted to repay my mother's favor for helping them run some errands. Guess what, it was one of the most lavishing dinner I've ever had!
I had my first taste on abalone, it was pure heaven.
The texture is a bit chewy, kinda like a calamari, but a lot more expensive.
Can you guess how much all these scrumptious dishes cost?
Then upon leaving, my distant uncle gave us a huge bag of fruits which he plucked from his orchard.
Wait, that's not the end of it.
In that black plastic bag, we discovered a box of bird nest on our way home, only God knows how much it cost!
Talking about the amount of blessings we received in one single day!
God blessed us in so many ways, so much more than we could think of.
A mere RM20 in return of more than RM400 worth of blessings.
Yeap that's right. That dinner alone cost a whopping RM400.
I believe that, when you give to God from the bottom of your heart, you'll receive unexpected blessings from Him. It may not be in monetary form, it could be anything, food, clothes, or even a part time job which was offered to me by a stranger I met last week.
Here's a book I'm currently reading and it's all about practicing the magic of gratitude.
Yea, the magic here refers to gratitude.
It's not entirely a christian book, but it's based on this scripture.
Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. (Matthew 25:29)
If you think you are constantly complaining about every aspect of your life, especially financially, then I recommend you should get a copy of it.
In a nutshell, when you are truly grateful, you'll be given more, sometimes more than you ask for.
