Sometimes we resist change. I have always been FOR change, openly and with great enthusiasm. This time is not different but I am nervous and anxious about failing. Will I be able to manage the discipline needed to feed my family in a healthy way and change their way of eating? Will I be able to save money and resist temptation for the things I don't NEED but want? Will I take time to be present as a mother and spend quality time with each of my girls?
The answer to those questions is yes. With God's help, yes. The Bible says we must die to ourselves daily to be a proper servant of the Lord. If God wants me to be better, which I know He does, then I must embrace change.
The butterfly symbolizes change. This butterfly started out kind of ugly but I worked and worked on it adding layers and layers of color and texture to create something I think is beautiful. It takes work to change and be what God wants us to be and it isn't always what we want to be but it is necessary to follow His will in our lives. God chose me to be the mother of two beautiful girls and I am making a change so that I can do a better job, for them and for Him.
I understand the need for change. The need to have a healthy family, the need to have more financial security and the need to be a mother my girls can come to, for and about anything. I understand, I'm just not real sure yet how to do it. I am learning and working and thank goodness He is not finished with me yet.
