From Caterpillar Worm to Butterfly, a life transformation.
The Butterfly Emerges
If you ever have a day where you feel miserable, discontent, not understood, or feel small. then just maybe you are human. You may have to get the who are you in you fixed. I know I have had to do this many times over. I could have one day when I know that I know who I am. I am a child of the Almighty God. He made no junk. I was beautifully and wonderfully made. I will fly like a butterfly. Then the next day I could feel like a caterpillar crawling in the dirt. I question myself. I get a little pity party going. I may think God is punishing me, when no, I am punishing me or I have given room for the enemy to edge in with his lies. God loves me He has forgiven me so any condemnation is not from Him. ( Romans 8:1)
I must say I have grown because the attempts at me are much shorter. I know what I need to do. I have the sword. 'The name of Jesus '. Believe me when I start speaking the word and saying a few scriptures 'in the name of Jesus', the enemy flees. He knows his doomsday is coming.
Christ says if he so cares for the lilies of the valley and feeds and shelters the birds of the air how much more does he care for and love us? We are his masterpiece. We have a place in heaven. He went to the cross for me, for you. When I get in that place of attitude living in the past, being insecure, wishing for more I need to focus on the creator. God does not lie. His word says 'all things are possible to those that believe' (Philippians) The change in me continues. It is not always comfortable. I do not live on Primrose Lane. I will emerge. I will be like that beautiful butterfly soaring around. The plan is in his hands. 'I can do all things through Christ who strengths me' (Philippians) I am a works in progress. My situation may not look pretty. I do not go on what things look like. I believe in the promises God gave in his word. If someone tells you, you can not, get that mentality out of your head. You can. Chasing things of the world will not fix you. Cars, houses, 401K, stock. When you leave this earth does any of that go with you? It is obvious in the challenging times we live in, things never could but God can .
Abundance is in inside job and only Christ can give you that and no one can take away kindness, self control, gentleness, peace, joy, faith or love unless we let them. So when the enemy comes for attack, children of God stand tall , rise up , be encouraged and of good cheer , climb on he rock and raise your hands . Christ says you are the head not the tail. Believe to receive and you will. (James 5:1) Christ says 'you have not because you ask not' or (Matthew) 'where two or more gather n my name and ask for anything in my name it will be done for them' . Do not believe the enemy. If he says no way ,say yes way, now out of here in the name of 'Jesus'.
When you rise in the morning get out your staff and sword. Read the word of God. Get your heart and mind fixed on him. He tells us in scripture 'fear not' 119 times . That is huge. The devil hates that Christ loves you and me. When he tries to come and steal your joy, you will be ready. Hold on to a couple of scriptures during the day. I love this one. No weapon formed against me shall prosper.(Isaiah 54:17) If I get into my pity party, or feel depressed or anxious I know this too shall pass. I am going to get through this. I am not alone. I will transform and emerge.
Faith comes when we hear the word. Faith takes action. You have got to get up, suit up and show up with the armor of God. Try to be around people with like minds. After many years in church I stopped going. I read the word, said the word, heard the word on Day-star Television, which was wonderful but not enough. I was isolating myself. God has bigger plans for me. The holy spirit prompted me to go back to church. He even told me which Church to attend. Is that so awesome? I am a much happier person for it. We live in a hurting world.Together we can go out and help others Our transformations can be a witness to them.This is part of the plan. I am excited. My husband joined in with me,he loves the church God choose for us. But of course, the best for the best, kidding. I do not think I am better then anyone. tt is because Christ lives in me that I am blessed.Times are not easy but the promises of God are true.
Things are a changing.
Butterfly will emerge.
Your breakthrough will come.
My husband lost his job 2 weeks ago. My hairstyling business is at an all time low. We do not have our rent money. Now I can go running all over freaking out. In the world of things it is not pretty. I could be scared. A year ago I think I would have been panicked. Today I know God is going to provide. I keep saying the scriptures. I laugh at the enemy when he tries to barge in. My faith is strong. I have a choice pity party, along with depression or anxiety or to stand on the Word of God. 'He is my 'rock' This is a huge step of faith for me. me. I look forward to getting back to hub pages to share the end of this story. 'The 'Rent Saga.' Our God is way bigger then my rent. He is a rich God. He came so 'we may have life and that we may have it more abundantly'. John 10:10. That says to me we have his peace and joy in us and he wants us to have plenty. Put God first place and he will provide the way. My eyes are open and my ears hear. He will lead me in the path I should go. If I fall down and I have I will get back up. The devil can take his lies and put them where the sun don't shine. So if you are in doubt or if you are having a difficult time today, try prayer. Keep the faith. Do not let go. If you need to borrow some faith today you can use some of mine. Just take the action, seek God. You are going to be OK. You are a child of the most high God.
Does a parent want to help his child? Think about it what would you do for your child? Cheer him on, encourage him, help him to stand up, bless him? Would you tell him he is dream-in? If so, dreams are good, tell him that. God has equipped him. You will be there for him helping him to grow, loving and nurturing him. Me, with my finite mind knows what I would do for my daughters. Anything to help them. I love them. So, is the Father going to kiss my request good-by? No , he came to save me and you. He knows our needs . He wants us to have the desires of our hearts. So if you are a bit down remember you are not alone.The butterfly will emerge. You are equipped.you will emerge and ever so beautiful. You will spread your wings and fly.
God paid for us and that gave us a free ticket to heaven (salvation) not hell. He took our sins so we could live with him in eternity. It is a choice. We have free will. If you live in this world and have never asked Jesus into your heart or you do not know if you are saved from the grips of hell then invite Jesus into your heart. Do not put off until tomorrow what you can do today. We do not know what tomorrow may bring. Jesus waits at the door, knock and the door will open. He loves you
Romans 10:9-10. 'If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and Savior, believe in your heart he rose from the dead and repent of sin you will be saved.
If you just said a prayer for Jesus than you are 'born again' You are a new creature in Christ Jesus . Celebrate. You hang on for the ride of your life. You are so blessed. The angels sing praises in heaven when one is saved. Do read the Bible, get into a bible based church to hear the word of God. God has a plan for your life and it is good, very good. May God Bless you richly in all of your comings and goings. .
With Love. Skye
