More Than 10,000 Butterflies In Flight

The simple trust of one human heart thrills God more than 10,000 butterflies in flight.

For within that heart there is a story more often untold

-a story filled with suffering and pain

-a story of second chances and beginning again and again and again.

His loving Heart looks down in all tenderness and woos the wounded one to trust one step at a time.

For trusting is easy to talk about but oft times so difficult to do.

Standing in the pool with open arms

I urged my little one to jump.

But again and again she retreated in fear.

“No Mommy, I can’t” she sobbed.

My aching heart understood and patiently waited for her to grow closer.

And so His Heart looks down on you and me

and wills us to trust Him

to take that step of faith

to forgive and let go

to move forward in life.

Choices and changes that take sometimes years and years to do.

But He ever so lovingly waits with wide open arms.

And when that moment comes and we lay all our brokenness down

and are carried on wings of faith to new heights

Yes, He smiles with delight.

No, the flight of 10,000 glorious butterflies could not thrill Him more.
