I can remember a story that was from my youth.
It was about a young boy that had planted a bamboo seed.
However, there was one big problem the he didnít realize.
And, that was that the Chinese bamboo seed is so hard,
That it takes months before the outer shell to crack and began to grow.
However, the young boy waited and waited,
continuing to water and nurture the tree.
His friends and other people were all teasing and telling him that he was crazy and a fool for wasting so much time on the tree.
However, one day the tree did emerge out of the darkness of the dirt,
To grow tall and straight.
And, so many times, I think about that story and my life.
That sometimes, God wants us to be patient and determined,
To wait on his blessing.
ďAnd he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither and whotsoever he doeth shall prosper.Ē Psalm 3:1(KJV)
