"Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots? I would not quit on 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 will 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. And remember… I will never leave you, nor forsake you. I will never give up on you. I will never, ever quit on you."
Never regret a day in your life.
Good days give you happiness; bad days give you experiences; both are essential to life.
Serenity isn't freedom from the storm, but peace within the storm.
