The butterfly starts out as a worm. It must go through a transformation process unlike any other. It is trapped inside a cocoon and unable to free itself or it will die.
As humans we go through many situations where we are unable to be free and we wonder why we are there to begin with. The situations are never there to harm us, but to mold us, to teach us, to make us better. Only when we surrender to our Higher Power, to God, will we learn the lessons we are supposed to be learning to work out our inner kinks, so that we can become the beautiful butterflies we were meant to be.
Transformation is inspiring, beautiful, and freeing, but it is never easy; in fact, it is one of the most intense, rigorous and painful processes we will ever encounter in our lives. If we fail to recognize the process as one to make us into a butterfly, we will wither away and die; falling short of all that God has created us to be.
