Butterflies are a new creation. They were at one time a caterpillar, but they went through an amazing metamorphosis and became a beautiful butterfly! The same change happens when Christ comes into someone's life. 2 Corinthians 5:17 states, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!"
Pigs really like to wallow in the mud and water. They barely have any sweat glands, so wallowing in the mud can help them regulate their body temperature. I can choose to wallow with the pigs, but I have He who equips me with everything I need. He helps me through!

One morning, crystal clear, I received a word from the Lord as I awoke...."When there is not enough.......there is......I AM!" Those words are so powerful and have meant a lot to me.
I don't think there have been many times in my life that I have thought there was not enough. During these times, my personal relationship with the Lord increases dramatically. Through much prayer and perseverance, He helps me get through. What do you do when there is not enough?

"We walk by faith, not by sight." 2 Corinthians 5:7
The Lord has been teaching me a lot about walking by faith since my mom died from Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS) in 2004. It's easy to walk by faith when everything is going your way. But will you chose to walk by faith and trust in God when you are walking though the toughest days of your life?
