Frog in the Well


While visiting friends in New Zealand few years ago,  I came across a challenging story that I won’t forget.  This made me think about the adventure in life, taking risks instead of regretting later.

“In the end we regret the chances we didn’t take, relationships we are afraid to have and the decisions we waited too long to make.”

Risk taking is believing in yourself while trusting in God; knowing that He will open doors for you, He will make a way even if there’s no way.   Here’s  my paraphrased version…  read on.

“Have you heard of the frog that was born at the bottom of the well?  He thought life couldn’t get any better till one day he looked up and saw day light.  Climbing up to investigate he was amazed to find a much larger pond than the one he lived in.  And going further a field he discovered a lake that was bigger again. 

When eventually he came to the ocean and all he could see was water it dawned in him just how limited his thinking has been. He thought everything he needed was down in the well but that was just a drop in the bucket compared to the things that were out there for him to enjoy.

Maybe you’re living today in your own little well, reluctant to leave your comfort zone, settling for a limited and safe existence while God has rivers of life  ‘deep enough for you to swim in’. Wouldn’t you like to step in faith, experience new depths in Him and go where you’ve never been before? 

Remember, the enemy will do everything he can to keep you focused on your background, your lack of formal education, your appearance and your limited resources.  It doesn’t matter whether your short of money, people, energy or time. 

What God invites you to do will always be greater than the resources you start with.. You don’t have to let FEAR limit your vision, when God is your source, because His supply is unlimited!  He’s got great things in store for you today… so start thinking outside the box.”
