There are time in my life i feel like just quit..I don't know whats ahead of me, i can only see tunnel but with no light at the end of it..I don't know wheather what i work hard for at this while is worthwhile..hmm..when this kind of feeling troubles me~then all of sudden i read this wonderful note that like before i would really love to share with u guyz..
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 commit suicide..
"God", I said one last time.. "Can you give me one good reason not to quit?"
Suddenly from no where, a farmer came..
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 water and fertilizer. 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. He said to me. "Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots." God would not give any of us a challenge we could not handle."
"I would not quit on the bamboo. God sure 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, "He 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.
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.
Yup, no regret and just move forward..your time may not be now, but just don't give up~..
Allah is great, he has planned everything from the beginning, when there's no pain, there's no gain..Be strong my friends for every path we took, eventually we'll grow strong just like the bamboo.. :)
