“Today you’re a cute, clever, smart and able caterpillar.
Yet, you’re limited to ‘crawling’ along as you are now.
However, you’ve been created to become a butterfly,
having more assets and abilities!
You may not ‘see’ it, or realize it, yet.
Nevertheless, its true.
So, don’t think this is as far as you can ever go.
Creator has a plan of metamorphosis for you!
It’s His process for enhancing your life to its best.
You can trust Creator’s metamorphosis working on you.”

Let’s Metamorphose
