How We Broke The Back Of Poverty-Pastor Mildred Kingsley Okonkwo
HOW WE BROKE THE BACK OF POVERTY
-Pastor Mildred Kingsley Okonkwo
About Insufficient funds, Pastor K when I married him he did not have money oh, don’t look at him the way he is looking now. That is why to be honest I kind of struggled. He is a pastor in Nigeria without salary and he was even bragging that he lives by faith, I said Oga this live by faith e no favour anybody. We want to pay school fees, we will believe God. Can’t you just put your hand inside your pocket and bring it out. If Pastor K was owing you 5k (N5000) when we got married, it’s only you and the Holy Spirit, and you will be praying unless say you no wan collect your money.
When I was getting married, my parents bought everything I will need, microwave, deep freezer, gas cooker but we could not afford to buy cylinder. They have bought you gas, buy cylinder to connect it, we couldn’t. We were now using one old green stove. You know those olden days green stove we were now using it, Pastor K was the one that taught me how to use it. One day I was trying to fix it but I did not know how to do it because we did not use it in my house, the thing now exploded in my face. I sat on the floor with my face black, crying and my husband was laughing. I don’t know why it was funny but I was very pained, he put his hand on his head and said “which kind Aje Butter be this one when I go carry”.
Until one day, my husband came back to the house and said to me that he just saw something that he has been skipping in the Word for so long. “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom” he said see this part that we often miss “for with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again” ( Luke 6:38). So if we want to be receiving in millions, we have to be sowing in millions. If we want to be receiving in dollars, we have to be sowing in dollars.
So we started saving money, those days anything you give him is for sale, they dash us rice we sell it, they dash us oil, we sell it. Just so that we can put money together to make that one million. The day when we got one million, it was 1,010,000 because my husband said he doesn’t want to hear it was a mistake when the angel was interpreting it to him. 1,010,000 I will never forget we signed that cheque and gave it away, that was the day we broke the back of poverty in our family.
The Word. Is it infertility? I went through that one for eight years still the Word. If you want your marriage to be good go and find out what the Bible says about marriage, interestingly all it says is that it is good. But there are instructions also for maintaining that good, “husbands you love, wives submit”. Simple. It not too much more than that. Let me tell you it not what you go through, It’s what you are made of, it’s what you build your marriage on. Yes, marriage would have challenges, even if your marriage goes through infidelity you can work it out because there is grace to forgive.
