This magnificent creature, however, did not start out this way. Sure, we see it as it is in completion… beautiful, stately, proud yet sensitive to the very distant breeze surrounding it. But we forget about the “lowly state” that it came from. It was a worm! It crawled on the ground. It was always “underfoot”. It was easy for some unassuming soul to accidentally squish it. (OUCH! Have you ever been stepped on?) Somehow it continues on, learning and growing, and then when the time is right, it presses into a safe cocoon to spend time developing to it’s new transformation. This parallels our lives. The more we press into God, (into His cocoon of grace and love) the more transformed we will be.
Let God mold you and make you into that beautiful butterfly, just be willing, and press into Him. He will create a dazzling work of art in your heart!
