MERCY AND GRACE

It is natural for a believer to do good things for His glory. I hope that everyone of us should give or share to others out of genourisity without expecting men to give you in return because He loves a cheerful giver but instead expect Him that He will bless you more than of what you’ve given.

During the sunday evening service tonight, God has touched my heart and voluntarily express my commitment to a churchmate to have repair the Central Processing Unit (CPU) in our church. Eventually, expressing my commitment to our pastor about it. I am not a rich person to do that but I have the heart to good things for His glory and not for men.

After the service, it is my daily routine to take my dinner first in a small eating place before going home and during that time God has send me a person who is familiar to me expressing that there is a availbale room for rent in their unit which is  60% lower than I am renting at present. I was invited to check the place and discovered that the area is pleasant. Then, I decided to take the opportunity to move because of the quality and affordale cost.

With this, I am believing that one of these days He will bless me a house and lot this city. I just want to believe the unbelievable with great expectations from Him.

I believe that it is not an accident that He has blessed more than that I have committed. In fact, this is not the first time that I have experience with regards to His mercy and grace.
