Caterpillar: I would rather not risk, I'm more safe on the ground. What would come of me if I were to fall down? Though it does look very freeing to soar so high and fly. I wonder what it's like to be that butterfly? I know I could easily be one, but am I willing to take that chance? What if someone falls on me, not paying attention as they dance. No, no, it's much safer here. What if something happened and my wing came off? Oh, how I wish I was tough! What if I was flying and everyone starred? Sigh.. I wish I wasn't so scared. Yes, I am a caterpillar and I'm not very proud. I wanna be a butterfly, I just need to get off this ground. I'm tired of the fears that are holding me down. I'm ready to be a butterfly and be beautiful in and out.
Creator: I saw you among them all, and I ask why are you sad? Are you no longer happy as a caterpillar? I thought it made you glad?
Caterpillar: Well, I was happy at first, but now I don't wanna fear. I'm ready to soar in the wind, I'm tired of just sitting here!
Creator: I have been waiting to hear those words from you. For I am the Life,way and the truth. As you ask I will give to you. Now I sing and rejoice over you with a great song.. Because I couldn't force you to be a butterfly unless you wanted to belong.
Do you ever feel like a Caterpillar?
Maybe you are afraid to do something because the problem just looks too big.
Or maybe you let your physical appearance get in the way.
Maybe you are afraid to get up and speak because of a stuttering problem.
Or maybe your afraid to sing because of what other people may think.
It is a four letter word that keeps us from doing things we feel led to do. F.E.A.R. It's one of the biggest things Satan uses on us to back off of something we want and desire to do!
I was sitting on my special bench today just looking at the water. I was just praising God, and thanking Him for who I am in Him and most important I thank Him for who He is! Whenever I feel fear, I thank Him for who He made me, and that I can do all things through Him who gives me strength continually. Fear was a big issue for me, so big that the enemy still tries to get me with it to this day! I use to let so many things that issued with fear get to me and unfortunately, I sometimes still do. But Jesus is so patient and merciful and overflowing me with compassion, love and kindness and He is constantly reminding me and saying "Hey Princess, remember I got this. And I am reminded of the verse 2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
God doesn't want you to fear anything! He created you to be free and to soar, with zero percent of unbelief. He created you to overcome things bigger than yourself because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world. 1 John 4:4
Don't let fear get in the way of what you wanna do!
Through Christ you can do all things. (Philippians 4:13) With Just the call of the Name of Jesus You can move mountains! Don't let fear get in the way of your dreams. Don't let reality get in the way if flying, don't let pressure get in the way of standing up, don't let stuttering get in the way of speaking, Don't let physical looks get in the way of your happiness, Don't let money get in the way of your peace,don't let talent get in the way of singing your heart out, don't let clumsiness get in the way of running for your dreams.
Just because people say you can't, prove them wrong by saying "I can!" Jesus has a pair of flying wings picked out just for you!
Don't settle for just good. Because in reality good is the enemy of better and best! Give up good and embrace God's best for your life! Because God wants to give you His best. So dream big and fly!
“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32
Have a wonderful Tuesday my friends!
