“Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.”
The caterpillar has to go through metamorphosis to become a butterfly. At times, the process is difficult and painful, but the outcome is beautiful.
It is through trials, tests, and tribulations that we grow. Anyone can give up. However, it takes faith, courage, and endurance to keep pressing, standing, fighting, and believing when you don’t understand.
Your breakthrough may be on the other side of your next yes, next no, next act of obedience, next leap of faith, etc. You cannot skip the process, but still want the promise.
“When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. When life is bitter, say thank you and grow!”
Years ago, I learned of an entrepreneur who was down because business was slow. He felt defeated and unable to support his family.
One night, someone stole some of his property. This pushed him over the edge, and later that night he ended his life.
The next day, his phone began to ring. Old and new customers called in need of his services. He gave up days before his breakthrough.
I share this because somewhere in the world, someone wants to give up on his or her life, marriage, children, business, dream, etc.
If God has not told you to quit, keep standing and trust his plan, even though you do not understand the process.
“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.”
Don’t give up and let someone else reap the benefits of your hard work!
“Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens.”
Have a blessed day!
