"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

COCOONING WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT


There is a reason why God made it not possible for us to observe with the naked eye what goes on inside a cocoon of a caterpillar ready to metamorph . There is a transformation going on where the caterpillar liquifies and probably not a appetizing sight to witness into the beautiful butterfly. (Sort of like when the Holy Spirit does emotional surgery on our spiritual heart, at times it is not a pretty sight and is a private healing between the Spirit and the individual.)

There is a precise time frame for the transformation of the caterpillar into the butterfly where it is a struggle but one that ‘must not’ be tampered with, unless we end up killing the caterpillar in its process to freedom.

Same goes with there is a precise time frame for each of us in our healing to freedom. We cannot rush the process......

  10. reminds me of a story I once heard, of a little child who saw a butterfly struggling to free itself from the cocoon, so the child freed the butterfly only for the butterfly to drop to the ground because it's wings were not strong enough to fly. the struggle to free itself from the cocoon is what builds strong wings so that it can fly. so even when a person exibits signs of being ready to be free, they may not be and it can be more harmful to help than to let them work at it at their own pace.
    I got a butterfly tattoo to always remind me that I'm done my struggle and now I can fly!
