Just like there’s a butterfly inside every caterpillar, there is innate, God given resiliency and beauty within each of us. The essence of who we are is untouched by our circumstances.

I love how Philippians 4:7 from The Message Bible says it, “Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.”

Even when you think and feel broken, you are whole.  Underneath the thinking and the feelings there’s a deep well of wisdom, peace and love within all of us.  It is the essence of who we are; for we are, ”Made in the image and likeness of God” see Genesis 1:27.

May you know the depth of that well and the perfect love that awaits you there.
