What did the caterpillar feel as the cocoon slowly engulfed its body? Metamorphosis is a scary proposition. Trust in God has to be firmly established in order to surrender to such a process. And that’s why it doesn’t happen overnight. Salvation is instant but sanctification takes a lifetime. Therefore, it’s important to be patient with oneself. Even the cocoon took time to transform the caterpillar. When your transformation seems problematic or unusually delayed, trust the God of the process. God has designed the process to fit your true self. For God loves the caterpillar just as much as God loves the butterfly. God loves the you you are now just as much as the you you are becoming. So love yourself and love the journey.
