Butterflies, Pearls, and Eagles

No Comments by

It has not been easy to express my heart on this website and on Facebook, but I am going to be transparent in hopes that you find a little bit of yourself in this post. I pray you find the strength and courage to be who God has called you to be.

For many years God has held me in a solitary place. I liken it to a butterfly cocoon.   This is a most holy place where He forges and molds a person in the deepest place of their being. And then it comes time to fly.

In this solitary place I have lived in safety and peace, but also in great frustration. I liken this to the pressure a pearl feels as its being forged inside a clam. I feel the greatness within yet confined by walls. And then that pearl is released.

And now here I am – like an Eaglet too big for the nest.   It’s time to fly but I am not sure how to navigate the Wind of the Spirit. It doesn’t matter. I am going to do it afraid – fly or fall – I am all in.

My Journal Entry – From The Heart of the Lord

It’s time to come out of this solitary place and bring to the forefront who you are in Me and what we have together as Father and Child, what we have as friends and confidantes, and what we have as Bridegroom and Bride.

You have come through the oppression of Egypt, you have walked through the hot sun of the desert and spiritually desolate places.  You have survived the cold and baron Davidic caves.  You have crossed over the Jordan into your promise land.   All the while having been in the Potters Hands, being molded, formed, and shaped.  Now it’s time to reveal the finished work and you feel vulnerable and afraid, but in your weakness, I Am strong.

In the solitary place you have sought Me for yourself but it’s time to seek Me for the sake of My people.  Yes, like many, you struggle with the desire to be recognized, but it does not make your motives impure.  Wrong desires will always compete with right motives.  

You long to reach My people.  You long to ignite their hearts, and so beyond the selfish desires are unselfish motives, and this is what I honor.  This is what I look at – your true heart.
