Caterpillars and Butterflies

Before you ever learned to walk, you had to once crawl. Although many of us have reached adulthood, a number of us are still stuck in the infancy stage. Some are fearful of getting up, because they don’t know whether they’ll stand or fall. Others are simply lazy, and don’t want anything out of life, except to depend upon others. As a result of their unwillingness to change, they go the rest of their lives living as caterpillars.

On the other hand, you have those that are ambitious, motivated and driven, so it’s only natural that they try to walk before they crawl. They don’t sit around waiting for handouts or others to do anything for them, because they are determined to do it for themselves. Crawling is not an option for them, because they’ve learned that all they have to do is embrace change, and they’ll be able to stretch their wings and fly. I love these type of people, because they are my butterflies.

Are you a caterpillar or a butterfly? Are you still crawling or have you decided to fly? Everyone will experience some type of change, but are you willing to embrace it, or remain the same?

Until next time my NOTE takers!

Buried Seed (You’ve been planted) Pt. I

It’s dark, cold, wet and you don’t know where you are. You turn to your right, then left, but no matter which direction you go, you can’t escape the blackness that surrounds you. That clammy, gritty substance you feel, is a result of the soil you’ve been submerged in. Panic and anxiety creeps in, because you’re at the bottom of the ground, and you don’t see an opening in site.

Unsure of your circumstances, how you got there or why you’re there, you struggle for a way out, but as He would have it, you’re unable to move! You’re stuck, for how long, only He knows, so you might as well get used to your new home. I know you don’t like it, but in order for you to “sprout” out, you’ve got to endure these conditions for a little while.

Pep up…..things are not as bad as they seem, but once you emerge, you’ll know why He kept you hidden for so long! Besides, anything of value takes time, and by no means are you a “rushed job”. Don’t allow the length of the process, to keep you from growing! I’m no “Green Thumb”, but one thing I do know, once the seed has been planted, it’s up to you to water it and see that it matures!

Until next time my NOTE takers!
