“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”
~ Maya Angelou
The bible says that I have become a new creature in Christ and that my life is also hidden in Christ with God. My story is that I feel like a now beautiful butterfly that is still being molded and developing it colorful wings.
See a butterfly goes through 4 cycles in life : egg, larva, pupa, and finally adult.
- In my Egg stage I was being fertilized as a child with the Word of God but I didn't know it or why.
- In the Larva stage I became a caterpillar consuming life experiences, communicating with the world and using their toxic substances to protect myself from predators and for survival.
- In the Pupa stage I stopped feeding on the worlds substance and began wandering in a quest for a suitable place for my life to be transformed into it's true purpose. I found God my creator once again and began to undergo rapid mitosis absorbing the nutrients found in Him and His Word. I was wrapped in His wings and hidden away in a safe place until I was ready to become an adult.
- I have just entered my adult stage and have begun to unfold my wings. The story is still being written...
