This butterfly which showed signs of being torn and battered by life paused briefly to remind me …

It’s still flying!

Perhaps, like me, you sometimes need to be reminded that though we’re surrounded and battered by troubles, and we’re not much to look at, we’re not demoralized. We may not be sure what to do, but we know that God knows what to do, and although we’ve been spiritually terrorized, God hasn’t left our side. Yes, we’ve been thrown down, but we haven’t broken.
So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever.
Meditate on it.
