Never QUIT.. Life has a distinct role for everyone...Wait for your turn..

Bamboo flower that appears after 48yrs

One day I decided to quit…I quit my work, my relationships, my spirituality, everything.
I wanted to quit my life... 
God called me to have a last talk..
I went to the forest to have one last talk with God. 
"God", "Can you give me one good reason not to quit? I said.  
He said-"Look around",  "Do you see the fern and the bamboo?" 
"Yes", I replied but why?
God continued..

"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. I was upset 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. It created despair.. But I did not quit on the bamboo. "In year three there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I was Determined I would not quit. The same in year fourth …
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." 

"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. 
"As high as it can?" I said. 
"Yes." He said,"Give me glory by rising as high as you can." 

I left the forest & the desire to QUIT, realizing that God will never give up on me. And He will never give up on you too.   

Never regret a day in your life.
Good days give you happiness; Bad days give you experiences; both are essential to life.
Never Quit.. Life has something in it's store for you too..
Wait till you get a lead role, in this God's Drama called LIFE!!!
Beautiful Bamboo flower the result of it's 48 years of patience & self-sustaining nature!! We too have something beautiful, in nature's store for us.. Wait till time comes...
