Isn’t it great to be alive today! Springtime is in the air. The days are lengthening and the temperature is rising. With spring comes the rebirth of life itself. New generations of creatures will greet the morning sun. I too, long to greet the morning dew and be warmed.
As a young man, I enjoyed this time of the year. I remember that I found delight in watching butterflies as they hovered above the cornstalks. Each kind of butterfly had its own unique beauty. I was in awe of the brilliant colors and patterns that adorned their wings.
As I grew older, I learned about the stages of their development. I found fascination in their evolution. First the egg was laid, that later became a larva to become a caterpillar. As a pupa, the caterpillar attached itself to a leaf, and became a butterfly. This last stage of development amazed me.
Several years later, I learned something wonderful about the metamorphosis of change. Once fully formed, the butterfly emerges from the cocoon. In its efforts to break free from its confines, the butterfly strengthens it wings. And so the lesson is birthed. Apart from this struggle, the butterfly would not be able to strengthen its wings to soar above the treetops.
The flight of the butterfly provides wonderful insight. Life presents challenges that often come disguised as change in the form of struggle. Change provides the motivation to strengthen the wings of our destiny. Change becomes our friend, as we find ourselves being prepared for something far greater than we could possibly imagine.
So rejoice when you encounter change. Your destiny is being formed within you. You are not walking in darkness. The eyes of your understanding are being opened. You are beholding what is being formed in you. You are realizing that the process is meant for your good, not for your harm. Be encouraged my friend.
Trust the process, trust the God of your understanding, and trust yourself. Your destiny is being worked out in you.
