yep........ He is THE one & only to truly rely on.

I see me as the frog though & relying on the strength of God while not focusing on the positives.

Terrific story and one that I will associate with Fully Rely On God (FROG) when I need that extra boost throughout the day!

FROGS

Once upon a time there was a bunch of tiny frogs....



who arranged a running competition.

The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower.

A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants....

The race began...

Honestly,no one in crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower.

You heard statements such as:

"Oh, WAY too difficult!!"

"They will NEVER make it to the top."

or: "Not a chance that they will succeed. The tower is too high!"



The tiny frogs began collapsing. One by one....

Except for those, who in a fresh tempo, were climbing higher and higher....

The crowd continued to yell. "It is too difficult!!! No one will make it!"

More tiny frogs got tired and gave up....

But ONE continued higher and higher and higher....

This one wouldn't give up!



At the end every one else had given up climbing the tower. Except for the one tiny frog who, after a big effort, was the only one who reached the top!

THEN all of the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know how this one frog managed to do it?


A contestant asked the tiny frog how he had found the strength to succeed and reach the goal?

It turned out....

That the winner was DEAF!!!!


The wisdom of this story is:

Never listen to other people's tendencies to be negative or pessimistic.... because they take your most wonderful dreams and wishes away from you -- the ones you have in your heart!

Always think of the power words have.

Because every thing you hear and read will affect your actions!

Therefore:

ALWAYS be....

POSITIVE!

And above all:

Be DEAF when people tell YOU that you cannot fulfill your dreams!

Always think:

God and I can do this!

Pass this message on to any "tiny frogs" you care about.

Give them some motivation!!!


Most people walk in and out of your life . but FRIENDS leave footprints in your heart.




In two days tomorrow will be yesterday.
Today is no special day and I have no particular reason for writing to you.
I have no news to tell you.

Nor any problems to discuss with you.

It's only one of those happy moments,

when I thought of you.

And I would like to share these thoughts with you.
