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.

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