Once in a while there is a little snail who doesn’t even know where to go.
She was wondering where to wander. She wants to travel alone but it is hard for her to get on her desired destination.
“Slow.. Why everything seems slow” she usually asked. She even wonder why everything she wants doesn’t happening. The prayers shes been lifting up every morning and every evening.. why left unanswered?
Then as she wonder and wonder on the things she on herself can’t reach she became anxious.
As she became anxious it affects her faith in God. She become doubtful, unhappy, and not at peace. She continues praying, atleast having a little faith on her, that God will surely help her. She was been looking for something she can’t find. She was a wanderer on her own wonderings.
Last 4 weeks ago. Awesome testing came into her life.
Relationships.. Broken promises.. Finances.. Emotions.. Physical health.. her family and she become the snail that wasn’t her before.
A test of faith, heart, character, and everything about her.
It was never been that easy for her to deal on those things. All she can do is to smile in daylight and cry in the night.
She hide for almost two weeks on the mask of a happy,lively, hopeful her and hiding on the real her (the broken, empty, and sad)
No one asked her how she is..
There were many other caterpillars willing to help but for her there is no one whom she can freely share her life, she finally know how to help herself.
She already took her journey to somewhere she wants to go. At first she doesn’t even know where to get the things she needed. Praise be to God for He provided her needs.
He used the mommy butterfly and a young beautiful butterfly. They’ve supported her.
Finally time comes and it was her first time to go somewhere she doesn’t even know how to survive.
She met people.. Different kinds of people..
At first she doesn’t know how to approach them, then suddenly she got the chance to know them. She did it by thinking it wasn’t about her but about her God.
Little by little she become more comfortable of what she’s doing.
She was already convinced that after all it’s not that bad to give a part of herself to other people who is in need.
It happened for two days. In those times she was very blessed of what she’s doing. Counseling people , giving herself to God, encourging them and enjoying the said moment. She began to know how to live out of her comfort zone.
After that moment and there were remaining two days, before she go home. It was the time she really enjoyed her season. The season to bloom after all the gloom.
new build relationships, foods, the places, and every favor God has given to her she take it as a bonus one. She was very blest. A gratitude arouse on her heart as she continues to go back to the path of her Creator, and with all humility.
She remembered something . God says “If Christ set you free you we’re free indeed. “ and They we’re true when they say “There is a rainbow after the rain. “ “There is victory after the pain”.
To all that butterflies, there is one special butterfly whom she enjoyed the companion. Rapor was built, and she was very thankful that even tho She was just a Snail and the other one is a special Butterfly that apparently really different to each other, she was so very thankful that she have spent her time with him.
On her way home she got a lot of mixed emotions on her; a happy and sad one. She put on herself that she must not be emotional again but be spritual.She is now a snail out of her own shell. She needs to die on herself, so that God may continue to be exalted, seen, and glorify in her life. It wasn’t about her but about God.
When a snail is out of her own shell, probably she’ll die. And that was good.
She believe someday she will become a butterfly like the other butterflies. Faith arises once again on her. Maybe for us humans, it was very impossible for us to believe that a snail can be a butterfly, but for God everything is possible. If our heart’s desires is for His Glory He will probably answer our prayers.
The journey of the little snail may be ended here, but God’s undying reign will never be.🙌
