Are You Like Bamboo?

From the time it is planted, a bamboo tree takes approximately three years before it actually breaks the earth and starts to grow. For the first two years there is literally not even a leaf or twig to signify what is coming.  In the meantime, the soil must be nurtured, fertilized and watered with no apparent results.  The commitment to the potential of the bamboo tree must be unwavering and the effort must be maintained for the desired result.

In year three, when the bamboo first sprouts through the earth, there is immediate and incredible growth.  The tree grows approximately one foot each day for sixty days.  Leaves and twigs also grow uncontrollably.  So what happened for the first two years?


The roots were growing deep and wide, strong and firm, so that when the tree shot up, the roots could easily handle the weight and proportion of the incredibly tall, strong and beautiful work of nature.

Are you like bamboo?  Are you building deep, wide and firm roots?  Will you be strong enough to handle the results you have been desiring and nurturing and working for?  Are you ready for immediate and incredible growth?  You will be, if you simply nurture your roots.

  Now, that’s Powerful!

Wishing You patience as you grow!
