Isn’t the process of a caterpillar to a butterfly a Beautiful thing? A wonderful process of change that is a complete metamorphosis from where the process started. A 100% change.
Hence, the blog name. When it comes to the aspects of my life, just about everything seems to be in the process of getting to the metamorphosis stage. LOL. Changing. Becoming something new – sanctification.
When I think about the process and the things that God has done to get my attention on Him, and getting me to understand the need for surrender to Him, God does seek us out. He is always seeking us, we just have to turn our hearts, eyes and soul to Him and hear Him.
The first thing that God called me to do was to home-school our son. He was already placing that on my heart before C. was even born. I couldn’t begin to fathom the depth of His request. When C was 2 yrs old, God brought a great friend into our lives through a home-school Co-op. She showed me pre-school possibilities and connected me to other mamas ~ God working to create this wonderful new family circle that has continued to grow over the last 4 years. Truly, it is amazing to be able to guide C. in his learning and watch him grasp something ~ IN THAT MOMENT. It is not a breeze, it has its ups and downs ~ I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I am truly blessed by witnessing this caterpillar grow and slowly, over years of instruction and growth – providing a biblical world view, instead of him being swallowed up by the secular world we live in ~ witnessing overall his change into the handsome butterfly that God has planned or written for him to become, if he chooses with wisdom and surrender to God. ~ to anticipate what that moment will look like. I pray daily to see that moment. I pray daily that C will see God’s light shining from me and that he will see God’s glory in everything I do. I try to be the witness that God has called me to be to the son that He has blessed me with. By no means am I perfect, I am human, I am not capable of true perfection as Jesus is. However, I can surrender my life to Him. Let Him take over and seek Him in all I do, every decision I make, so that we Glorify HIM. Always HIM. Praising God in this journey.
Catch me on the Part 2 of the Butterfly Life to see the next aspect that God called me and I surrendered.
Romans 12: 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
