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 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.

 

 

“In year three there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would

NOT quit. The same in year four.

 

“Then in the fifth year, a tiny sprout emerged from the earth.  Compared

to the fern, it was seemingly small and

insignificant.

 

 

“But just six 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.

 

 

“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, realizing that God will NEVER give up on me.

 

 

 

And 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.

 

SO ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF LIFE……………

 

love…

One thought on “A bamboo story…

  1. Thank you for sharing that, it is a wonderful story. I would hope to someday walk in a forest of bamboo, but more important would be to be like the bamboo and go as High as I can, with the grace of God.
