How to make sure you get the loan you needed?

Today is one of the day I will always remember.
Not just because it's Friday, it's because one of my prayer is paid instantly! Isn't that a miracle?

First of all, I have an announcement, I will get married on July, 23rd. :)
Yes, that's right, you have read it right. Married. With a girl that 5 years older than me.
It will be an awesome day I believe.

With my already big debt, how come I dare to marrying someone?
That's my friend, because I believe in 7 habits (this is not Steven Covey's 7 habits)
Then what 7 habits?

They are:
1. A support, blessing and pray from our parents
2. A support, blessing and pray from our husband or our wife
3. Prayer
4. Fasting
5. Alms and philanthropy
6. Never stop learning and make ourselves worthy
7. Hospitality and socializing

From those 7 habits only number 2 the one I don't have right now. So I make my deal, I will get married this July.

Now, back to the topic. Today, I have to make down payment to catering. Because the event is next month, so everything must be ready this month.

The problem is, I don't have any money, neither my fiancee. Stupid isn't it?
Well, we believe the money will come. Just don't know when. Ha ha ha ha.

Then what's the fastest solution to our problem?
Yes, the solution is to borrow money from someone or bank.
But, I never heard a bank that can lend you money in a day.
So, the answer is to borrow money from someone.

Now, where's the miracle?
Be patience my friend...
We have tried a whole 2 days, finding someone that can lend us money. But unfortunately no one can help us.
So, with no hope, with only a little money in our pocket. On Friday prayer, I gave it all.
I gave all of my money to the mosque where I pray today.

Because I believe with the quote, "You only get, what you give."
When you give time, you'll get more time.
When you give knowledge, you'll get more knowledge.
When you give money, you'll get ......? That's right, more money.

And, it paid instantly, that afternoon, one of my senior, sending a message to my cell phone, he can help us lending the money we need. Isn't that a miracle? In the nick of time, God send us the answer for our problem.

And for closing, one more good quote:
Every problem has its own solution.
If you can't find the solution, then it is not a problem at all.

A Rough Start

Never think about it. Never dream about it. But it happen.
I'm broke.
No money. Just a lot of over due debt.

How do I get into this mess? I can't really remember. But fortunately, my parents really are the greatest help. All of my credit cards debt are paid by them. And now I got a lot of loan to my own parents. Beside of course they have raise me up and take care of me until now.

But that money problem I think is everybody problem. Even one country have to loan. So how to deal with it?
You will found a lot of article about it on the internet, even a lot of book written so you can solve debt problem. But still a lot of us have problem with debt.

So again, how to deal it? How to solve it? Let me tell you. One thing for sure. You've got to change. Period.

Ha, that easy to say, but really hard to do, isn't it? Yes, indeed.
Especially, when debt collector show up and call you over and over again, or when you really need money and don't know what to do.

Do I have answer to that problem? Right now, I don't have the answer. But don't worry. Like my blog title, Let's Dream Big! Dream is everyone right. No matter who you are, what color you are, or in what country you are. Let's Dream Big. My first dream is to have more money than my already big debt.

God, I know I'm not good, so many sin, so many terrible mistakes. But please give me a chance. Make me change. Make me a better person. Amen.
