Grace Abounds


Grace Abounds

If nothing goes nothing comes. Let me tell you of a nice inspirational story. “…There was a woman called Miriam she had 3 sons and 2 daughters but she had divorced her husband. Life was indeed difficult for her but in all she took steps of faith to cater for her 5 children whose ages ranged from 5years old to 19years old. She was a strong Christian.

Grace Abounds

One day, on her way from an evening service she came across an old wretched hand bag which laid right in front of her. She reluctantly bypassed it as normally as it was not worth taking. Right after six steps away from the bag a strong wind blew in front of her which got her and the kids a bit terrified (because the husband had spoken a curse after she left him) least did she know she had moved swiftly backwards to stumble over the bag she had hesitantly rejected. Then a voice spoke to her to pick up the bag and give it to the 3rd Son to hold till they get home. But Miriam refuted the voice and rebuked it. She fled that scene with her children towards the way home. Suddenly it started raining so heavily! Then she shouted! “Oh Kweku Nsia leave me and my children alone in peace…?!” At this time they were all drenched in the rain and stood in awe as it rained even the worse. Miriam was confused what had suddenly occurred since she closed from church. Before she knew it, the same bag she rejected picking up was right infront of her again! As it’s logically grounded that the rain might have floated and drew it coincidentally towards her.

Then the same voice came again,”…pick the bag Miriam and give it to Ammi your third son…” Then this time she heeded to the voice and picked the bag. To her amazement, the bag was very heavy such that Ammi alone couldn’t hold. But due to her obedience she found a way for his third son to hold the heavy bag as they all headed towards home. Immediately they started walking the rain stopped unexpectedly as if it never rained. Though there were traces of droplets on the ground to clear anxieties it was superficial how it stopped dramatically. She wondered and gasped as they continued to walk home. Ammi was dragging this heavy wine colored bag which had its color revealed due to the rain which washed away its dirts and filthes.

The time was 11pm and Miriam and her 5 children had reached home. They prayed right after they entered the house. She left the bag at the tip of the staircase right before her main entrance door. In the cause of prayer, she saw exactly the same bag filled with ancient ornaments, jewels, 10 bars of gold, 6 pieces of diamonds and 14 sapphires. She forced her eyes opened which startled her kids as she asked them to go to bed.

She then went outside to check on the rejected bag. Right before Miriam could get any closer Ammi approached her and hugged her from behind so tender and passionate which he was in tears. Mother could appreciate his hug but not the tears. She asked Ammi why he was crying then he said;

“…Jesus is here…, I saw him smiling at me in my room and he told me to tell you to bring the bag inside…”

Miriam this time didn’t doubt as she now know what kind of God she’s serving managed to bring the bag inside with the help of all the 5 children. After bringing this mysterious wine bag, she realized the bag had a golden padlock! Which had on it written…;”

…Jeremiah 29:11…” She quickly sort for her bible and read: “For I the Lord I know the thoughts that I think towards you, thoughts of good but not evil to give you an expected end”

She fell down on her knees in tears and thanking God. Moments after, her children also mimicked the same action. She touched the padlock and to her amazement it just opened! Unzipped the bag and what was in?!

Ancient ornaments, jewels, 10 bars of gold, 6 pieces of diamonds and 14 sapphires; the same precious things she saw as she was praying was the exact in reality. “…Oh my God?!!!…” she screamed and fell off her back again in shock. In fact she had actually fainted. Kojo the second born had to quickly get water to wash her face to revive her from the unfortunate unconscious state due to the scene of trauma. The children became terrified but hopeful for what’s about to happen next. After all wealth is not to be compared to a loving mother like she was who will always seek the face of God with all her children and thought them the way to go so they become prominent in life and pillars for the kingdom of God.

Indeed what they witnessed was overwhelming! All six of them were in awe, emotional and excited about what had unfolded. Definitely they will now be filthy rich according to the plans of God he had originally designated for them. It was just a matter of time. Right from that faithful Friday evening, their lives were totally transformed. Miriam being a single mom before this glorious manifestation of the power of God. Things were not easy at all for her as the children kept growing rapidly as though they were injected with lactobacillus.

One significant thing about them all was they were all genius. Sarah the first born was in her third year in the University Of Legon in Accra. She was 19 years old, Kojo the second was a professional keyboardist and even at 17 years he was elected to play the national anthem infront of the president of Ghana. Ammi, 14 years was the third, most handsome and intelligent amongst Miriam’s children. The sweet 11 years called Angel was the fourth and so beautiful, actually she was the best in her school in all areas both biblically and in all subjects. Just as her name goes she portrayed as such. Her school mates used to call her “Angel Esther ” due to the fact that Esther in the Bible was a great heroine for the people of Israel when she became the queen to King Xerxes after winning tthe beauty pageant in the book of Esther in the Holy Bible. Esther 2:3-4. David was the fifth born and the strongest. Oh yes! That little boy has an extraordinary strength that baffles the whole city of Accra. David was only 5years old. He had recently started writing books about nutrition even at his tender age. These children were created for signs and wonders.

May you also receive your portion in Jesus Name! Amen.
