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”, 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
“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 GOD how big the problem is, tell the
problem how Great the GOD is!
