From Caterpillars to Butterflies


Caterpillars. We've chanced upon and adopted two caterpillars in the past three weeks. It's fascinating watching them as they are little worms, and it's hard to imagine that one day, they will be beautiful butterflies.
It's interesting to watch those little hair creatures as they feed on fresh leaves to store up for the time when they'll be wrapped up in their little cocoons.

Kind of like us too, I was thinking. We're still caterpillars, feeding on God's Word every day of our lives, making sure that we hide His Word in our hearts. We won't always be caterpillars, though. At a certain time in our life, like the caterpillar, we will all turn into butterflies. Pretty wonderful, really. [I hope I'm a purple one. =)]



2 Peter 3:18
"But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ."

Your Heart Today

This is an amazing song about a person after God's own heart. May this be the prayer of each one of us!

Where there is fear I can allay
Where there is pain I can heal
Where there are wounds I can bind
And hunger I can fill,

Lord, grant me courage
Lord, grant me strength
Grant me compassion
That I may be
Your heart today.

Where there is hate I can confront
Where there are yokes I can release
Where there are captives I can free
And anger I can appease

Lord, grant me courage
Lord, grant me strength
Grant me compassion
That I may be
Your heart today.

When comes the day I dread
To see a broken world
Compel me from my cell grow cold
That your people I may behold.

Where there is fear I can allay
Where there is pain I can heal
Where there are wounds I can bind
And hunger I can fill,

Lord, grant me courage
Lord, grant me strength
Grant me compassion
That I may be
Your heart today.

And when I’ve done all that I could
But there are hearts I cannot move
Lord, give me hope
That I may be
Your heart today.
