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.

Psalm 46:10

Bless the Lord, O my soul. All that is within me, bless His Holy Name.

Psalm 103:1

The battle belongs to The Lord.

1 Samuel 17:47

So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.

Hebrews 10:35
