Good morning blog ville,
Someone sent this to me and i thought to share. Enjoy!!!!

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.
