The old things have passed away. Behold, new things have come!
II Corinthian 5:17
I mentioned in my blog post a week ago that I have been watching a Monarch Butterfly Chrysalis over the last three weeks. It started with a beautiful Jade Chrysalis that looked like the work of a highly skilled jeweler. When I brought it to church on Sunday you could see the wings of the monarch butterfly forming inside the chrysalis. I was hoping that the butterfly would emerge right in the middle of our worship service!! I carefully took the flower vase that it was in home that day and put it back on our deck. The next morning the chrysalis was sprung open and the monarch was gone!!
There was a little sense of disappointment that we didn’t get to see the butterfly emerge, and that we won’t be able to watch it anymore. But most of all there as a sense of JOY!!! That hairy little worm that was crawling on the ground and over leaves a month ago is now a Beautiful Butterfly flitting around our garden. We actually saw a monarch flying around our back yard!!
My Point: God has called you to soar with him to heights of Love – Joy – Peace – and Purpose!!! You give God great joy when you Soar!! To get there you have to submit to the process of Metamorphosis that occurs as we daily walk with God as People of Faith and submit our wills and our lives to Him!!!
See you Wednesday for Family Night!!
Peace & Joy!
