Born to fly and multiply



One of the most beautiful creations God made and one of my favorite is the butterfly. Butterflies are free.

Have you ever seen a butterfly who looked stressed out, worried, angry, depressed, discouraged, or unhappy? No. Butterflies are happy. ūüôā

I researched caterpillars and butterflies today. It was fascinating to read about them.

Caterpillars are one big munching machine from the time they are born until the time they are transformed into the butterfly. They even eat their own skin in the chrysalis!

Butterflies are more graceful and delicate. Their favorite beverage is a flower drink (the nectar).

Butterflies are all about flight and reproduction. Even when resting, butterflies are often preparing for flight by keeping their wing muscles warm enough to move.

Butterflies also have an extremely short life span.

The small blue butterfly can live only a few days. The migrating monarch butterfly can live up to 12 months. Some species of butterflies migrate thousands of miles or hibernate in the winter.

But at the end of their journey or at the beginning of spring, all butterflies’ actions are the same. They mate, the females lay eggs, and then all the adults die.

The eggs hatch into caterpillars, which turn into similarly short-lived butterflies.

Born to freely fly. Born to multiply.

It’s the same with us as Christian believers.

We weren’t made to just munch, munch, munch our way through life – consuming everything the world offers such as material goods, entertainment, social media, food.

We were created for so much more Рto fly with God. To fulfill His purpose for our lives. To be fruitful and multiply on earth, to subdue it and rule over everything. (Genesis 1:28)  To leave a Godly legacy through our children.

“But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” – Isaiah 40:31, NLT

We are to be Freed by His Love, Transformed by His Power.

Butterflies are free


Copyright 2013 Eren McKay

This morning a friend asked me for a favor, and when I did, she blessed me with a gift. I don’t know if Eren McKay knew that I’m hosting a women’s conference locally on April 27, and that it’s logo/theme is a butterfly being released, but she made this beautiful butterfly graphic for me. I love it!

The colors are beautiful and I love heart drawings. How creative for her to¬†draw the girl holding¬†the flowers and the butterflies like balloons! (Eren’s creativity inspires me! You can check out her site here. Be sure to also listen to her podcasts. They are so soothing and peaceful, and very practical.)

Have you ever seen a butterfly that is stressed out, worried, depressed, angry, or unhappy? No. Butterflies are free. They are happy. They are not weighed down with concerns that hinder them from flying.

What about you? Are you free? Are you happy? Are you fulfilled? Are you being all God made you to be, living out your purpose and passion for God’s glory?

I invite you to join me and other women across the U.S. and Canada for this exciting women’s conference in Belton, MO (just outside Kansas City, MO). Women of¬†faith of all races,¬†nations, cultures, denominations, and economic classes¬†will connect in the heart of America¬†to enjoy our four anointed speakers, a delicious catered Italian lunch, great door prizes, friendship and networking opportunities – and FUN! It’s time to be RELEASED from whatever has been holding you back into your great purpose and destiny! You can find out more by clicking here.

If you live in another town, city, state, or even country, it will be SO worth the flight or drive to attend. God has already been doing amazing things with this conference. You don’t want to miss the blessing.
