~ “Let Me Tell You Why You Shouldn’t Quit! — 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 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 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 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 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 bring back this story. I hope these words can help you see that God will never give up on you. He will never give up on you. Never regret a day in your life.
MORAL & LESSON FROM THE STORY: –
~ “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,
=> Sorrows keep you Human,
=> Failures keep you humble,
=> Success keeps You Glowing,
=> But Only God keeps You Going!
~ “The Lord is my light and my salvation — whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid? 2 – When the wicked advance against me to devour[a] me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall. 3 – Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident. 4 – One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. 5 – For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock. 6 – Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord.” [Psalm 27:1-6]
