Just read this about butterflies and then the very next thing I saw was this picture. I think the Lord is speaking this morning ~ I have been writing so many things about not giving up because this is what the Lord has laid on my heart and what he is teaching me. He is still placing things before me to gently remind me that he sees what is happening and he cares. How awesome is our God ? So thankful for his gentle reminders. So thankful to be called his child, his daughter.
Have you ever watched a butterfly struggle out of its cocoon? It looks likes it is never going to take it. When it finally does, it is exhausted. Is it worth it? Yes, because it is that struggle that pumps blood into the wings, enabling it to fly. That is why it does not give up. It keeps struggling to get out. We can look at our struggles that way. No matter what we go through it is producing something good in us. Therefore, we should not give up.
