Butterflies..(take some moment to read this^_^)

Sometimes the struggle has a purpose.........One day, a small opening appeared on a chrysallis (butterflies make a chrysallis and moths make a cocoon);a person sat and watched for the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole.


Then, it stopped and did not appear to be making any  progress.It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could and it could not go any further.So the person decided to help the butterfly: With a pair of scissors, the person opened the chrysallis.The butterfly then emerged easily.But it had a withered body, it was tiny and had shrivelled wings.


The person continued to watch, expecting that, at any moment the wings would open,enlarge and expand, to be able to support the butterfly's body, and become firm. It never happened!In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life  crawling around with a withered body and shrivelled wings. 

It never was able to fly. . . .What the person, in sincere kindness and  goodwill, did not understand was that the restricting chrysallis and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening, were the One'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 chrysallis. 

              Sometimes, 
                       struggles 
                               are exactly 
                                        what we need 
                                                    in our life.

If God allowed us to go through our life  without any obstacles, 
...it would  cripple us. We would not be as strong as we could have been. We would never be able to fly.

I asked for Strength...
And God gave me Difficulties to overcome and to strengthen me. 


I asked for Wisdom.. 
And God gave me Problems to solve.

I asked for prosperity...
And God gave me enough Brain and Brawn  to work

I asked for Courage...
And God gave me Obstacles to overcome.


I asked for Love...
And God gave me Troubled people who were ready for help.


I asked for Favors...
And God gave me Opportunities. 



                                I received 
                                     nothing I wanted...But I received 
           everything 
                      I needed.


Live life without fear,confront all obstaclesbe convinced that you can overcome them.The World is a gift for you..so that you, too, may spread your wings
