Broken Butterfly...

I'm not sure if I've ever shared with you that I LOVE butterflies. I love butterflies because they're so care free, "bubbly", detailed, fragile/delicate, distinctive/unique (no two have the same pattern) and their process to becoming beautiful butterflies is LONG but worth it.

Like a butterfly, each of us were created uniquely. Even identical twins are different. Our journeys are unique, our compositions are unique, our smiles are unique, our pain is unique, our tears are unique, our stories are unique, our dreams and aspirations are unique and our wishes and desires are unique. We are not carbon copies. You should ALWAYS accept and embrace who you are because you were uniquely, fearfully and wonderfully made just like butterflies. Did you know that a butterfly's front wings are different from the back wings?
We have all experienced different things which helped to shape and molds us into who we are today.
Have you ever wondered why certain people cross your path in life? Have you ever wondered why these people were chosen to cross your path? NOTHING is by chance. Every second, every minute, every hour, is ordered by Lord. Have you ever met people and asked "where have you been all my life" only to find out that they were just not who you thought they were.....only to be hurt by them, only to be disrepected by them, only to be broken by them. These people were strategically placed in our lives to allow us to trust in the one who would NEVER hurt us, never disrespect us, never break bring us closer to him.
The enemy (the Devil) tries to steal your joy and kill the unique person that you are but DO NOT allow him to. Resist him. Trample him under your feet with the knowledge that God did not give you a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline (11 Timothy 1:7- NIV). Our Father knew that the enemy would send "friends" and distractions to detract us from our focus on him, that's why he gave us such power. We DO NOT have to die like butterflies when their wings are broken or completely removed. We can trust and know that in God ALL things ARE possible and he WILL bring comfort to our hearts.

So, no matter what your circumstance may be today, God is ALWAYS there. Even though you may feel broken, you will NOT die like a butterfly. God is made PERFECT in our weakness.

I wanted to share this with you today to encourage your heart that even though you are unique and delicate, you will overcome and you will not die like the broken-winged butterfly.

Today's makeup look is also representative of the broken's my expression hence it's not perfect. It's broken....
