Photo Journal: Butterfly and the Bible


Some time ago I posted a picture of one of the ‘adopted’ butterflies in the house after we’d rescued the cocoons from the winter cold. When going through my archive I stumbled upon the pictures below and upon a closer look I realized that this was probably even more amazing. Of all the places this good butterfly could have chosen to sit down after the first short flight, it landed on the Bible to rest and get ready for the real world.

And sure enough. After spending some time hanging on to God’s word the beautiful creature was ready for the real world.

In hindsight it is a beautiful illustration:

By hanging on to His word we’ll find the strength and confidence and guidance to live a life as He meant it to be and open ourselves up for hearing what He has to tell us.
