Once upon a time, there lived a married couple in the United States of America. He was working as an engineer in a very good firm. They had a cute little daughter. She was very small so his wife used to be at home taking care of her. Their married life was going very smoothly and they were very happy with each other. They had taken a new house and car on loan. One day there was an argument that happened with his manager due to which he had to leave his job.
He tried to look for a new job but he was unable to find one. He was giving several interviews every day but nothing happened. Almost 3 months passed, and there was no saving left. Day by day he was losing his hope. He was getting several calls and notices from the bank as he was unable to pay his EMI. Finally, the bank people arrived at his home and said they have to pay the EMI within 1 week or they have to vacate the house as it will be auctioned.
One week passed and the bank people arrived at home. They told them to vacate the house immediately as they wanted to put the seal. They said it will be auctioned after 2 days. Now they didn’t have a place to stay so he told his wife to take their daughter to her grandmother’s house. His wife refused to go, however, she had to agree for her daughter as she was too small. He went to one of his friend’s houses to stay for a few days. He asked his friends if they could help him to find a new job, however, there was no vacancy left.
Two days passed and it was the auction day so he could not understand what to do. The auction was done. After completing the same the bank had taken their amount and the rest was given to him. After completing the procedure he collected and counted whatever he was left with. It was just $70, which was very little for him and his family to survive. He became very sad and he looked at his past life and realized that nothing is left with him. How to fulfill the basic needs of his family was a big question in front of him. What should I do with this $70? I can’t even start something of my own with such a small amount.
He was passing by a garden when he saw the kids playing with their parents, he remembered his wife and daughter. He thought of talking to his wife but couldn’t understand what to talk to her as she would get worried. “What should I tell them?” I am bankrupt now. Everything is over, nothing is left with me. He sat at the nearby bench thinking what to do and where to go.
A man was sitting next to him reading the newspaper. He borrowed it from him to read it. He read that the government has organized today an auction of a gold mine. He thought instead of sitting here, let’s go there and check the gold mine. He left from there and went to that place. When he went there, he saw that no one else had come to the auction to buy that gold mine. He thought anyhow the $70 won’t help him to survive. So he thought to use that for the bid on the gold mine. After some time it was announced that he won the auction as no one had turned up and that big gold mine was his.
The Mason started digging the gold mine however nothing was found in that mine. He just thought for a while and said to himself now that $70 has also gone.
The Mason who dug the mine came to him and said; Sir, what should I do? I have got money for today till 5 pm. Now you are the owner of this mine, if you will say to dig more, I will do and if you will say to go, I will leave. So he thought, it’s only 2 pm and 3 hours are still left.
If you have got the money for today then why waste that time so start digging for some more time. The Mason started digging. Approximately, 3 feet of mine was dug, and the most shocking moment was that real gold was found in that mine. That man was the owner of this gold now.
And within a few seconds, he became a millionaire. His life was completely changed with this twist.
The moral of this story: You should never, ever give up in your life. Always remember, if God closes one door, he opens 2 more doors for us. You never know when your life will take a twist. So just trust yourself and stay positive. Even if the whole world leaves your hand doesn’t give up because God will always hold your hand and will never let you fall.moralofstory
