Don't give up.....

.......

One day I decided to quit...
I quit my job, my relationship, my
spirituality... I wanted to quit my life.

I went to the woods to have one last
talk with God.

"God", I asked, "Can you give me one
good reason not to quit?"
His answer surprised me...
"Look around", He said. "Do you see the
fern and the bamboo?"
"Yes", I replied.

"When I planted the fern and the bamboo
seeds, I took very good care of them.

I gave them light.

I gave them water.

The fern quickly grew from the earth.
Its brilliant green covered the floor.
Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed.
But I did not quit on the bamboo.
In the second year the Fern grew more
vibrant and plentiful.

And again, nothing came from the bamboo
seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo.

He said.
"In year three there was still nothing
from the bamboo seed.
But I would not quit.

In year four, again, there was nothing
from the bamboo seed. I would
not quit." He said.

"Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout
emerged from the earth. Compared
to the fern it was seemingly small and
insignificant...But just 6
months later the bamboo rose to over 100
feet tall.

It had spent the five years growing
roots. Those roots made it strong and
gave it what it needed to survive.
I would not give any of my creations a
challenge it could not handle."


He asked me. "Did you know, my child,
that all this time you have been
struggling, you have actually been
growing roots".


"I would not quit on the bamboo.
I will never quit on you."
"Don't compare yourself to others."
He said.
"The bamboo had a different purpose than
the fern.
Yet they both make the forest beautiful."

"Your time will come", God said to me.

"You will rise high"

"How high should I rise?"
I asked.

"How high will the bamboo rise?" He
asked in return.

"As high as it can?" I questioned.

"Yes." He said, "Give me glory by rising
as high as you can."

I left the forest and brought back this
story.


I hope these words can help you see that
God will never give up on you.
Never, Never, Never Give up.
For the Christian Prayer is not an
option but an opportunity.


Don't tell the Lord how big the problem is,
tell the problem how GREAT the LORD is!

"Don't compare yourself to others."[/b]
He said.
"The bamboo had a different purpose than
the fern.
Yet they both make the forest beautiful."

Don't compare yourself to either fern or bamboo. In fact, don't compare yourself to anything. In further fact, don't ever think of comparisons...

...than to speak out and remove all doubt." - Abraham Lincoln
