"A child found a chrysalis in his back yard and wanted to see it open and know what kind of butterfly it would become. He carefully placed it in a glass jar and watched it for weeks. On day he finally saw a small crack in the side where it had begun to split open. He sat and watched intently as it wiggled and flailed. One wing began to emerge then it fell still. It did not move again for a very long time (to the boy) and he began to worry that the Butterfly was stuck and would not be able to get out.
He got a small pair of scissors and very carefully trimmed down the outside of the spit to make it easier for the butterfly to get out. After a time the butterfly began again to struggle to get out and it's wings burst free from the weekend cocoon. It sat with It's wings together and hung for a long time then eventually dropped to the bottom of the jar. It did not move it's wings and when the boy took the jar outside it did not try to fly away.
Confused and worried the Boy asked his science teacher the next day how long it would be until his butterfly would fly away. The teacher gently told him that cutting the cocoon had made it so that that butterfly would not ever fly away. The butterfly must go through the struggle of leaving the cocoon to build it's wing strength and develop it's ability to fly. Without that struggle, it would never be able to leave the glass jar. "
God knows how to help us develop our wings so that one day we can soar, free of the bonds that keep us in our glass jars. He knows how strong to make our obstacles so that we can get through them but still be tested and able to grow. If he cut us free, it may relieve the pains of today, but condemn us in bondage in the long run. Always remember that he has a plan to make you fly. It will end as he wills it, if you accept his will for you. All we have to do is trust, leave the worry in his hands.
