A Butterfly’s Lesson ” One day, a small opening appeared on a cocoon; a man sat and watched for the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole.

Then, it seems to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could and it could not go any further.

So the man decided to help the butterfly: he took a pair of scissors and opened the cocoon. The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a withered body, it was tiny and shrivelled wings.

The man continued to watch because he expected that, at any moment, the wings would open, enlarge and expand, to be able to support the butterfly’s body, and become firm.

Neither happened! In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a withered body and shrivelled wings. It never was able to fly.

What the man, in his kindness and his goodwill did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening, were 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 to go through our life without any obstacles, it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as we could have been. Never been able to fly.

I asked for Strength... And God gave me difficulties to make me strong. Iasked for Wisdom... And God gave me Problems to solve. I asked for prosperity... And God gave me a Brain and Brawn to work.

I asked for Courage….. And God gave me obstacles to overcome. I asked for Love... And God gave me Troubled people to help.

I asked for Favors... And God gave me Opportunities. “ I received nothing I wanted... But I received everything I needed."

Live life without fear, confront all obstacles and evince that you can overcome them. Execução: Leandro Valdir Traducción: Fidelia García
