Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could and could go no further. Then the man decided to help the butterfly.
He took a pair of scissors and snipped the remaining bit of the cocoon. The butterfly then emerged easily.
Something was strange. The butterfly had a swollen body and a shriveled wings. The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected at any moment the wings would enlarge & expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time.
Neither happened. In fact, the butterfly spent rest of its lie crawling around with a swollen body & deformed wings. It was never able to fly..
What man in his kindness an haste did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the small opening of the cocoon are God’s way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.
“ Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our life ”
If God allowed us through all our life without any obstacles, it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as what we could have been.
Not only that we could never fly… 😦
So ending on a positive note… hope you all liked the story..
