Lord, I feel like I just want to curl up into a dark little cocoon and forget about the world.
Today I’m going to;
Open my eyes even when I want to hide in the dark
I will praise God for His light and that He’s with me as I walk
When things are difficult day after day, month after month, life can be so daunting to face alone. So many times it would seem that the easiest thing to do would be to just close ourselves up into a cocoon and blanket ourselves in the darkness forgetting all of our struggles and pain.
The cocoon is where God touches the creature of the ground and with His beauty, a butterfly is born. The butterfly feels the struggle without seeing the beauty as it struggles to free itself, but God’s plan is always waiting for it to push through. Remember that in your struggles, God has His plan. He is with you and has a plan for your days. Every struggle is not in vain. Every day will be used for your good and His glory. You ARE the beautiful creature that God is creating.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
