It fascinates me to understand that caterpillars turn into butterflies. They crawl around on their bellies until it’s time to spin a cocoon, and then they spend their time inside it undergoing a unique and incredible change. They break out of those cocoons and take to flying as if they knew it was always meant to be. The truth is, the “caterpillar life” is only meant to be temporary, and once that caterpillar becomes a butterfly, it can’t ever return to that existence again.
“FAITH is your heart
telling you to be bold,
be very BOLD.” -Silver Rae Fox
Our faith is meant to be transforming, just like that caterpillar. I’ve been in that dark, transforming place like the caterpillar many times. An amazing metamorphosis was always taking place. My “wings of faith” were developing and strengthening, and necessarily so. How else can you soar over overwhelming obstacles, despairing difficulties and devastating grief? I’ve experienced it all. I am indeed a woman with wings, often relentlessly flapping as hard as I can each day against the wind, determined to keep soaring. I praise God every day that I’m still in flight! ~ S.R.F.
