From AllWorship.com Blog:
Once there was a man who asked God for a flower and a butterfly.
But instead God gave him a cactus and a caterpillar.
The man was sad. He didn’t understand why his prayer was not answered.
Then the man thought, “Oh well, He has so many people to care for,” and he decided not to question God.
After some time, the man went to check up on the cactus and the caterpillar.
To his surprise, from the thorny and ugly cactus, a beautiful flower had grown.
And the unsightly caterpillar had been transformed into the most beautiful butterfly.
God always does things right.
His way is always the best way, even if it seems all wrong to us.
If you asked God for one thing and received another, trust Him.
He will give you what you need at the appropriate time.
What you want is not always what you need.
Today’s thorn is tomorrow’s flower.
