Lessons from the Butterfly

Butterfly Struggles
Before a butterfly can emerge out of it’s chrysalis it has to go through a lot of struggling.
Yes, struggling.
Each time it lunges out to escape, acids are being removed from its wings.
If someone were to come along and break the chrysalis open for it
then the butterfly would die from those acids.
In essence the struggle is necessary for the butterfly to survive.
Then in the stillness, when the struggle is over,
the butterfly can come out and share its beauty with the world.

We as humans are not any different.
There are times that we need to struggle,
to rid ourselves of the acids that make up sadness, fear, and anger.
It is only at this time when we are exhausted and still,
that we begin to hear God whisper to us.
