Are you similar to a caterpillar or a butterfly?
Caterpillars and butterflies intrigue me because of the miraculous transformation that takes place. The insect begins as an egg and becomes a crawling caterpillar which does what it is designed to do: consume and grow. The caterpillar consumes, consumes and grows until one day it attaches itself to a leaf and begins to form a chrysalis where it will stay until it emerges as a butterfly.
Do you realize once a caterpillar is in the chrysalis all of it’s organs liquify and days later it emerges as a new creature–everything that it once was is no longer?! Like the caterpillar to the butterfly I have been transformed and I am a new creature!
I have shared on this blog a testimony of my encounter with God~the day I ‘breathed my last‘ and was born again. That was three years ago.
When someone truly encounters God and knows Him intimately you can see a difference. There will be authentic fruit revealing a true change of heart (repentance); A transformation happens…God gives us a heart to know and love Him, ears to hear, eyes to see and puts His Spirit in us telling us the way we should walk. This is where I will share about the beginning of my transformation~the person I used to be and the new life God has given me through Jesus Christ. God is changing everything about me:
*As a wife
*As a mother
*As a daughter
