    The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore when your eye is good, your whole body is also full of light; but when it is evil, your body also is full of darkness. Therefore see whether the light that is in you isn't darkness. If therefore your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, it will...

The Caterpillar

  • But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like His glorious body, by the power that enables Him even to subject all things to Himself. Phil 3:20-21 ESV

    Each year, at an oak tree in our yard, a fresh batch of caterpillars are born into the world. They first crawl about as tiny helpless worms stuck in the tree. After much effort, they find a spot to call home, build a cocoon, and shut themselves off from the world. After a few weeks of being in the dark, the air is filled with butterflies.

    When walking with the Lord, we all start out excited, but difficult times do come. Rarely is this Christian walk that easy to do, but it is all preparing us for something better. The word transform in this verse means to remodel. To take what is there, and make it new again. The Lord does not destroy what we are, He makes us better.

    Let the Lord remodel you into something better. Don’t give up when you are alone and it gets dark, this is just part of the process. If you give up now, you will miss the most glorious part of your life. Right when the caterpillar thought it was over, it became a butterfly.
