“If any person be in Christ, they are a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”
2 Corinthians 5:17
Welcome to my new blog called Leaping Butterfly. Hmmm, I am getting signals from you and I know what you are thinking…Leaping Butterfly? Leaping? Believe me; I would question the same because we all know butterflies don’t leap. However, I saw one that did and ever since that moment my heart now flies with a more colorful pattern than I could have ever imagined. I’ll tell you the glorious story at another time.
In the meantime, let’s take a 52-week journey together on Tuesday mornings about the beautiful power of transformation.
Here are just a few questions that will be addressed:
1. Why transform?
2. Is it necessary?
3. Will it be easy or painful?
4. Is there a process?
5. Will there be an end to it?
Each blog post will include a question, quote, information or statistic, along with Scripture, a personal story, and a challenge for you to personalize too.
The purpose for this blog, and ministry, is to encourage ladies not to fear transformation but to embrace it. Ask a butterfly how good it feels to go through a process in order to experience the whimsical joy that follows. I’m sure she would testify that change is good and well worth the struggle to persevere through it. We, who are captivated by a glimpse of her butterfly form, can also learn to capture the attention of others when we decide to demonstrate the exhilarating flight of freedom. God has made a way for us to break free from a dark cocoon and be released into a garden of beauty.
I leave you this week with question number one, “Why transform when a cocoon feels so much more secure than a creature that flies?”
