The 200 Peso Miracle
Do you believe in miracles?

Let me tell you a true story.

Tonight, me and my girlfriend saw an 80 year old man selling street food at 12AM.

He was very slow and weak. Plus, it was already dangerous for him to be on the streets at this time.

It crushed my heart.

Instead of begging for money, he was working hard to sell stuff to support himself and his family.

God was speaking into my heart to give something to him.

I looked at my budget and I only have 200 pesos left to spend for the entire week.

But, without hesitation I gave him all that I have left for now.

Then, I prayed to God, "Lord, bless this man. Keep him safe and use this money to support his needs."

I could see that huge smile in his face. It may not be that much but I knew that it was huge for him.

It was very heartwarming and satisfying.

When it became really late, I drove my girlfriend home and I also went home.

As I was about to change my clothes, I did my regular routine of emptying my pocket of my phone, wallet and loose coins.

But, when I did that my finger grabbed some paper.

I pulled it thinking it was just one of those receipts I may have kept.

When I looked at it, the paper was purple. It was a 100 peso bill! Not one. But two.

I got my 200 pesos back.

I got goosebumps at this point.

I have a finance app that keeps track of where my money went. I could not trace where this 200 came from.

I felt a sudden rush in my heart. It was as if God was speaking to me, "Give and it will come back to you."

Miracles really do happen.

And yes, this experience is enough reason for me to believe in them.
