A man found a cocoon of a butterfly

One day a small opening appeared, he sat and watched for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole.

Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could and it could go no further. Then the man decided to help the butterly, so he took a pair of scissors snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon.

The Butterfly then emerged easily. but..... it had a swollen body and small shriveled wings. The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time.


In fact the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shriveled up wings.


What the man in his kindness and haste did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterflly to get through the tiny opening were God's way of forcing fluid form the body of the butterfly so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved it's freedom from the cocoon.

Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our life. If God allowed us to go through life without any obstacles, it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as what we could and should have been.
