Isn't it Ironic! (poor but rich!)

Let the poor say I am rich, says the Lord!

I was born in a family whose means of living is through rice planting or what we called "farmers". Seeing my family (I mean my Dad's side) toiling was hard for me and to me its means we a poor. A reason why I really strive hard to finish my studies because i don't want to be a farmer. When I was a child I used to dream that one day I will get rich and I will help my family and the homeless children. Someday I will help pay my grand parents debt and we will live happy. It didn't happen! until....
I came to know Jesus in my heart, and received/accept Him as my Lord and Saviour, and through His Words I became rich through faith.
Before with out Jesus in my life, riding an airplane and going to places here and abroad was just a dream... nothing but a dream. Now, that I have Jesus in my life I know that I am rich through faith and the dream that I have before come to completion. A year after I accepted Christ in my life God brought me to Bangkok, Thailand year 2000 and have brought me to some other places too here in the Philippines. And this year 2009 God brought me to Macau. But year 2003 I was invited by a friend to go to Chicago but I was not able to because I was not ready yet. But my friend had invested with that already by paying my visa application to no avail but we both believe that one day God will brought me there.
On July 25 will be her wedding day and.... we are invited! This is impossible... we have no means to be able to go there. But last Friday amidst of financial crisis and a lot of must paid due bills we were able to pay for our visa application. We say we don't have the means to pay or spend more because we have nothing to spend anymore. But every need we have after Friday was met because I know that I am rich in faith through Christ Jesus!

Every Blessing that YOU poured out...turns back to Praise...!

You are so right. Everyone can be rich if they will just allow themselves to be.

I’m glad I read this. I rarely reply to peoples comments…not because I don’t like them…but because I thought it was self-serving.
Thank you
