Day 18: Made To Fly

What if the caterpillar refused to get out of the cocoon?

What if he so loved his life crawling around eating leaves

that he missed the life of flying and eating the sweet things of life.

What if?

Oh how I feel like that caterpillar at times when I act like a


I know that I am a NEW CREATION IN HIM,

yet when I live IN me I go back to the days I used to crawl

eating the same thing

doing the same thing

believing the same thing

just like everyone else

yet always searching for something more.

Never satisfied.

Never content.

Do you feel like you are crawling through life when you were created to FLY?

Oh how I forget WHOSE I am

when I am chasing butterflies,

yet I am one.

For I am & you are a


because the moment you accept the reality

that you & I & everyone else needs JESUS in order to fly

that begins the moment we say I DO to JESUS.

Oh to FLY


even if we don't know how to fly,

because we can't fly on our own~

"I can do all things through CHRIST who strengthens me" (Philippians 4:13)

Oh my crawling days are over,

yet they return when I try to do all things through ME

and it doesn't end well.

But GOD knows me so well & you & everyone else

that even though we may return to our crawling days~

"Even youths grow tired and weary,

and young men stumble and fall..."

HE lifts us up with we LOOK UP~

"but those who hope in the LORD

will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles;

they will run and not grow weary,

they will walk and not be faint" (Isaiah 40:31)

Oh leave cocoon living behind

for IN HIM

"I'M GONNA FLY" (listen to the song below)
