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. The fern grew more vibrant and plentiful. Yet, nothing came from the bamboo seed.

"But I would not quit. Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth, 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."

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."

He added, "Don’t compare yourself to others. The bamboo had a different purpose than the fern. Yet they both make the forest beautiful."

Don’t tell God how big the problem is, tell the problem how great God is!
