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", 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 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."

 "Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from

 the earth.

 Compare 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 i 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


 "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 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!

 Love, Light and Peace
