I have been feeling a little puny this week. I have been very thankful to feel my body is fighting off something, but at times I succumb to battle fatigue.
This seems to be the time satan invites me to a pity party. I start ruminating on my weaknesses instead of God’s Strength in me.
Today, God sent a wonderful Message through a butterfly. The poor thing was clinging to the screen. It looked very noticeably a victim of a battle.
Part of one wing was missing. But it extended every bit of what it had left in praise. I stared at it in wonder for several minutes.
It was so immobile I began to look closer to be sure it was alive. And then suddenly, it stretched even more, as if it were awakening from a good nap and flew away.
My last view of it was as it climbed upward toward blue, sunny skies.
I got The Message.
Be still and know that I am God.
Bless the Lord, O my soul. All that is within me, bless His Holy Name.
The battle belongs to The Lord.
1 Samuel 17:47
So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.
