When life feels as if it is spinning you around at a whirlwind pace, it is time to take a moment and be still. The roller coaster ride will continue whether you are on it or not, life will not disintegrate without you, but if you do not take a moment for yourself you might fall apart. So take a few deep breaths, reconnect with yourself, with God.
From the moment the butterfly emerges from its cocoon, it is a wonder, a miracle, a thing of beauty. Its very existence is a testimony of its Creator, its purpose is to pollinate. In the same way we are also, each and everyone of us, a wonder, a miracle, a thing of beauty. Our purpose: to be a testimony of our Creator, to share the Gospel on our journey through life.
When we focus on the things around us, the dirty dishes, the bills, the meetings and dozens of other chores, we tend to take our eyes off God, but if we see in everything another opportunity to glorify God, we become like the butterfly, merrily flying along, enjoying every glorious moment of life.
When 'one of those days' happens again, take a deep breath, change your focus and fly......
