Giving Is The Secret Principle Of Receiving - Poem by Angela Poen

the season was very dry and dusty
with no hope of rain
green was a myth
it only existed in the make-belief world
with that last drop of water
that was my last hope for restoring dying plants
I applied the knowledge of science accompanied by faith
that is when science befriended a principle of Christianity
i.e. Giving
expecting the same yet good measure, shaken together and pouring over
I took my last drop of water and gave it to the atmosphere
with the knowledge that it will evaporate
condense into clouds
and with the help of heat return back to earth as RAIN
I put God's word and my faith to a test
I gave so I could receive more

a few days later it rained
and I knew God remembered me
it rained on my fields
rained on me
and infiltrated into the soil
that the soil couldn't take any more of it
that is a good measure, pressed down,
shaken together and running over
it is always not easy to let go of what you only left with
it was not easy for me either
the thought of gambling with it
bringing to you the fear of losing it
is just unbearable
but the results of it pay when you believe
do you think if I saved that last droplet of water
I'd be looking at the GREEN fields today?

so invest in God
and whatsoever you are investing
shall grow abundantly with good interest
it shall multiply back to you
invest your love
invest your life
invest whatsoever you don't want to lose
'try me' he said
and you shall see that he never forgets his promises
