A Butterfly’s Lesson
”One day, a
small opening
appeared in a
cocoon; a man
sat and
watched for
the butterfly
for several
hours as it
struggled to
force its body
through that
little hole.

. it seems to stop making any progress.Then. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could and it could not go any further.

it was tiny and shriveled wings. The butterfly then emerged easily. .So the man decided to help the butterfly: he took a pair of scissors and opened the cocoon. But it had a withered body.

to be able to support the butterfly’s body. enlarge and expand. at any moment. the wings would open.The man continued to watch because he expected that. and become firm. .

the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a withered body and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly. .Neither happened! In fact.

were God’s way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings. in his kindness and his goodwill did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening.What the man. so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon. .

If God allowed us to go through our life without any obstacles. it would cripple us. .Sometimes. struggles are exactly what we need in our life. We would not be as strong as we could have been. Never been able to fly.

.I asked for Strength. I asked for Wisdom... and God gave me a brain and brawn to work. I asked for prosperity.. .. and God gave me problems to solve. and God gave me difficulties to make me strong..

. and God gave me troubled people to help. and God gave me obstacles to overcome. I asked for Love.I asked for Courage…....

.. But I received everything I needed..I asked for Favors. “I received nothing I wanted.." . And God gave me Opportunities.

. confront all obstacles and know that you can overcome them.Live life without fear.
