FREEDOM FRIDAY

CandaceFrazerI AM NO LONGER THE SAME (excerpt)

Yes. I admit, I was a caterpillar BUT…… now look at me. Can’t you see that I’ve become this magnificent new creature. Behold…The old has gone, the new is here!!

I know that I wasn’t very desirable to you in that state, even though you, too, were once a caterpillar. I know!  But….look at me NOW.

Can’t you see that…I…AM…different?  My movement is different. My thinking is different. My love for you is different. WAIT!!!! My love for me is different.

And because my love for me is different, I can love you…… even though, you, too, were once a caterpillar. And, because my love for you is not defined by your past disposition, I can love you with a purity that can only come from my spirit.

YESSSSSSSS………I do remember being a caterpillar. I’m not proud that I was a caterpillar. But, I thank GOD that today, I can stand here and say, I am no longer a caterpillar. And……..even though……..you still….on occasion choose to see me as a caterpillar….. even after witnessing first hand my work as a butterfly. So, in this case, would you have me to believe that……you……are no longer conducting yourself as a caterpillar? Since that is all you choose to see me as? Hmmmmm

So, I’m sorry that when you look at me, you only see a caterpillar.

  • I’m sorry that when you look at me, you only hear the enemy telling you that I’m not worthy to be seen as a butterfly, since we know his only mission is to kill, steal and destroy.
  • I’m sorry that when you look at me, you can’t see me as a butterfly saying to you, YESSSS, I was….but in Him, I have been DELIVERED.
  • I’m sorry that when you look at me, you can’t hear me saying I LOVE YOOOOUUUU……BUT….. it is….. in HIM that I live and move and have my being.
  • I’m sorry that when you look at me, you can’t allow yourself to touch me….but….that, too, is okay, because I have offered this body as a living sacrifice, holy, and pleasing to GOD…and He touches my very soul.

So, when you come to your senses and recognize the BUTTERFLY, you have been blessed to receive…I will still be here to love and care for you.

May GOD guide you to your Pathway to Spiritual Rebirth.
