“Having with me…” E mail Courtesy Hiten Bhatt



 The business executive was deep in debt and could see no way out.


 Creditors were closing in on him. Suppliers were demanding payment. He sat on the park bench, head in hands, wondering if anything could save his company from bankruptcy.


 Suddenly an old man appeared before him.


 “I can see that something is troubling you,” he said.


 After listening to the executive’s woes, the old man said, “I believe I can help you.”


 He asked the man his name, wrote out a check, and pushed it into his hand saying, “Take this money. Meet me here exactly one year from today, and you can pay me back at that time.”



 Then he turned and disappeared as quickly as he had come.



 The business executive saw in his hand a check for $500,000, signed by John D. Rockefeller, then one of the richest men in the world!


 “I can erase my money worries in an instant!” he realized. But instead, the executive decided to put the uncashed check in his safe. Just knowing it was there might  give him the strength to work out a way to save his  business, he thought.



 With renewed optimism, he negotiated better deals and extended terms of payment. He closed several big sales. Within a few months, he was out of debt and making money

 once again.



 Exactly one year later, he returned to the park with the uncashed check. At the agreed-upon time, the old man appeared. But just as   the executive was about to hand back the check and share his success story, a nurse came running up and grabbed the old




 “I’m so glad I caught him!” she cried. “I hope he hasn’t been bothering you. He’s always escaping from the rest home and telling  people he’s John D. Rockefeller.”  


 And she led the old man away by the arm.



 The astonished executive just stood there, stunned. All year  long he’d been wheeling and dealing, buying and selling, convinced he had half a million dollars behind him. Suddenly, he realized that it wasn’t the money, real or imagined, that had turned his life around. It was his new found self-confidence that gave him the power to achieve anything he went after.



 Feelings of “having …with me “…… can bring a bankrupted guy— back to Business..


 Don’t you think … if we can exercise “Having … with me…” for God…  can make difference in our life…


 If we can start experiencing God is within me, not in the sky, or only in the temple… God is with me, not working for me… He works with me…  can make.. A Bagger

 — The King..  And we stop crying and asking for help all the time…. And start taking

 Responsibilities of our own Kingdom
