Flower and Butterfly

Once there was a man who asked God for a flower, and a butterfly.

But instead God gave him a cactus, and a caterpillar!

The man was sad, he didn’t understand why his request was mistaken. Then he thought to himself "Oh well, God has too many people to care for. Nevermind", and decided not to question.

After some time, the man went to check up on his request that he had left forgotten. To his surprise, from the thorny & ugly cactus a beautiful flower had grown. And the unsightly carterpillar had been transformed into the most beautiful butterfly!

God always does things right. His way is always the best way. Even if to us it seems all wrong.

If you asked God for one thing & received another, trust. You can be sure that He will always give you what you need at the appropriate time. What you want is not always what you need. God never fails to grant our petitions, so keep on going for Him without doubting or murmuring. God gives the very best to those who leave the choices up to Him.

Remember: today’s thorn is tomorrow’s flower!
