"The Man and the Butterfly"
An inspirational story about life
Have a blessed Sunday 🙏❤️
🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋 A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day, a small opening appeared . He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours, as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress.
It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could, and it could go no further. So the man decided to help the butterfly.
He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon.
The butterfly then emerged easily 🦋
But it had a swollen body and small shrivelled wings.
The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that at any moment.... the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time.
NEITHER HAPPENED!!! In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shrivelled wings.
It was never able to fly.
What the man, in his kindness and haste did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening, was God's way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.
Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives. If God allowed us to go through our lives without any obstacles, we would not learn to grow. We would not be as strong as what we could have been.
WE COULD NEVER FLY!
When I ask for STRENGTH, I am sent difficulties in my life to make me strong.
When I ask for WISDOM, I am sent problems to solve.
When I ask for PROSPERITY, God has given me the brain and strength to work.
When I ask for COURAGE, God gave me danger to overcome.
When I ask for LOVE, God gave me troubled people to help.
I asked for favours and God gave me the opportunities. I received nothing I wanted but I received everything I needed. 🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋 #transformation #butterfly #strength #wisdom #courage #prosperity #love #kindness #god #trust #enlightment #soulgrowth #spiritualawakening
