My friend sent me this poem and I wanted to share it with you all. You may have read it before, but I hope it brings some light to your darkness
An elephant and a dog became pregnant at the same time. Three months down the line the dog gave birth to six puppies.
Six months later the dog was pregnant again- and nine months on the dog gave birth to another dozen puppies. The pattern continued.
On the eighteenth month the dog approached the elephant questioning- “Are you sure you’re pregnant? We became pregnant on the same date ; I have given birth three times to a dozen puppies, and they have grown to become big dogs, yet you are still pregnant. What’s going on?”
The elephant replied- “ There is something I want you to understand. What I am carrying is not a puppy, but an elephant. I only give birth to one in two years.
When my baby hits the ground- the earth feels it.
When my baby crosses the road- human beings stop and watch in admiration.
What I carry draws attention, so what I’m carrying is mighty and great!”
Don’t lose faith when you see others receive answers to their prayers.
Don’t be envious of others testimonies.
If you haven’t received your own blessings- don’t despair.
Say to yourself, *“My time is coming, and when it hits the surface of the earth- people shall yield in admiration.”
