Matthew 3:17 (New International Version)
And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be in a place where there were lots of gorgeous butterflies? In various sizes, with a kaleidoscope of colors?
I love the joy of watching butterflies flying around showing the beauty of their wings.
But imagine being part of that species, and then discovering that you were the only caterpillar that hadn’t transformed? What a disaster that would be!
Some days you might feel like that? Awkward? Out of place? Left behind? Feeling like everything is going wrong? That you, in comparison with everyone else around, seem to stand out as weird!
God has a message just for us. Just as He said about His Son Jesus in a beautiful affirmation for His time on this earth. He feels that same way about us! We are loved and He is pleased with us.
Today make it your goal to feel no shame in who you are… you are a creation of God… a butterfly!
Dear Lord we thank You for the reminder that we have each time we see a butterfly. We pray that we would always remember the beautiful creation that You have made each one of us. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
