When You Think About Giving Up

 

The Fern and the Bamboo.....

 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 Creator.

  "Creator", I said. "Can you give me one good reason not to quit?"

  The answer surprised me...

  "Look around", Creator 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".

 Creator  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.
  But I would not quit.
 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."

 Creator  said to me. "Did you know, 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."
 The bamboo had a different purpose than the fern, yet, they
  both make the forest beautiful."
  "Your time will come,  you will rise high!"

  "How high should I rise?" I asked.

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

  "As high as it can?"  I questioned.

 "Yes, came the answer, "Give thanks for your life and all that you have,  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 Creator  will never give up on you........
