Never the Same

Do you ever wonder~

"Will I ever be the SAME again?"

after something happens

that challenges you not to be the


as you where,

yet you want to stay the



that is the only way you know to be?

But is it good to stay the


when you could be oh so much better?

I wonder if a caterpillar had a choice

would it

choose to stay the


and have a gazillion legs then wings to fly?

Why would it want to become different and fly when crawling is all it knows?

Why would you or I choose to stay the



continue to crawl through life being

"anxious about everything"

when we could soar through life

"by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God"

so that we become so different because

"the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,

will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:6-7)

Why would you or I choose to stay the


when we could become oh so different



will never good enough

because we can be oh so different

than we are so used to be

just because we ask~

"Search me, O GOD, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!" (Psalm 139:23-24)


HE answers

in a way that

you are never the



"And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh" (Ezekiel 36:26).

A caterpillar doesn't have a choice

to ask to change or not to change,

as it just does.

Oh how much easier it would be

to jump into a cocoon

and just let nature take its course

metamorphos~zing us into a

beautiful butterfly

without our doing anything.

But we have a choice

& that isn't to stay

in a cocoon

but to come out

and choose to

to go from crawling to flying~

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:

The old has gone, the new is here!" (2 Corinthians 2:17)

Why be the SAME when you can be oh so different?

What are your thoughts & prayers?
