if you want to give it up!
you want to give it up? If so, please read it before you could:
day I also 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 said. "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
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 the third year, there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I
would not quit. In the fourth year, 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 said to 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 you 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 answered.
“Yes.” He said, "Give me glory by rising as high as you can.”
I left the forest and bring back this story.
I hope these words can help you see that God will never give up
He will never give up on you.
Never regret a day in your life.
Good days give you happiness
Bad days give you experiences;
both are essential to life.
A happy and meaningful life requires our continuous input and
creativity. It does not happen by chance. It happens because of our choices and
actions. And each day we are given new opportunities to choose and act and, in
doing so, we create our own unique journey." Keep going...
Happiness keeps you Sweet,
Trials keep you Strong,
Failures keep you humble,
keeps you Glowing,
But Only God keeps you going!
The never failing
word in Bible says in 1Cor10.13 that God is faithful, who will not suffer you to
be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way
to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
How true are His words that claims
that Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt
you in due time in 1Peter5.6 .
Look at the lives of Joseph and Daniel, which
are witnesses to these words; they have grown from Pit to Power and Slavery to
Supremacy. Trust Him and in His words and you will certainly rise in Glory! Try
this and you will never be the same again!
