Don't give up on the dreams God has planted within you.
In the far east, there is a tree called the Chinese Bamboo. When you plant it you must water and fertilize it for five years before it grows. But in the fifth year, there is a five week span of time where it will grow ninety feet. The question is, did the bamboo grow ninety feet in five weeks of did it grow ninety feet in five years? It grew ninety feet in five years! Many times we quit watering and fertilizing our dreams during the first four years and miss the blessing of the will of God for our life at the end. When you are tempted to give up, continue to water and fertilize your dreams, plans, and those visions from God that He has placed within you.
1 Corinthians 15:58,
"Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vein."
