my father once told me a story

about

an

old

redwood tree

how it stood tall and proud

.

.

.

.

.

its sprawling limbs clothed in emerald green

.

with a smile,

my father described its as a mere sapling,

sheltered by its elders

and

basking in the safety of the warm, dappled light

.

.

.

but as the tree grew taller,

it found itself at the mercy

of the cruel wind

and

the vicious rain

.

.

.

.

.

together,

they tore relentlessly at its pretty boughs

until it felt as though its heart would split in two

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

after a long,

thoughtful pause,

my father turned to me and said:

.

my daughter, one day the same thing will happen to you, and when that time comes, remember the redwood tree

.

do not worry about the cruel wind or the vicious rain — but do as that tree did and just K E E P   G R O W I N G “

no one truly know who they are ‘ he sighs

the

glass bottle

does

not

know

its

own

contents

.

.

.

it has no idea whether

it is a vessel for the most delicious apple cider,

a lovingly crafted wine,

or

a bitter poison

.

.

.

people are the same

.

yet, like the bottle

.

.

.

.

.

we are transparent

.

.

we can not see ourselves the way others see us

.

.

.

how do you see me? ‘ she asked

.

.

you are a bottle floating out at sea ‘ he says ‘ one that contains a very important message, it may never reach its recipient but as long as there is someone waiting, it will always have purpose

.

.

.

will you wait for mine ?

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

i will ‘ he promised

i will look for you every time i stand at the edge of the ocean

story of feelings

.

once,

there was an island where all the feelings lived together

.

.

one day,

there came a storm in the sea and the island was about to drown

every feeling was scared but LOVE made a boat to escape

.

all the feelings jumped in the boat except for one feeling

.

LOVE got down to see who it was

it was EGO

.

.

.

LOVE tried and tried but EGO didn’t move

everyone asked LOVE to leave EGO

and come in the boat

but LOVE was meant to love

LOVE remained with EGO

.

.

.

all other feelings were left alive

but

LOVE died because of EGO

.

.

.

.

.

— the end —

God is in complete control

.

.

just because it’s uncomfortable doesn’t mean it’s not where we’re supposed to be

God uses difficulties to do a work in us,

we grow in the tough times,

that’s when our character is being developed

.

.

just say this words:

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

” i am not going to live frustated because i am uncomfortable,

i am not going to be upset because things are not happening on my timetable,

i am not going to fight against everything that i don’t like,

God,

i trust You

You are in complete control,

i may not like this situation,

but You would not have me here

unless i needed it,

so,

i am going to keep a good attitude and be my best

right where i am “

.

amen
