I love this poem!
I was a gorging caterpillar Consuming everything I could;
It was my nature, I knew no better, To me, it just seemed so good.
Then shame struck me and in searing pain I cocooned myself away from sight;
And in that shell You dealt with me ‘Til I was ready to return to the light.
Now I’m reborn a beloved butterfly Crafted with detail and engaging flair,
Painted with love by Your master hand, Molded with Masterly care.
As I flap my wings Who knows what effect You will impart through me?
Creating simple ripples, Affecting complex lives, Of people I may never see.
All glory to You, Whose perfect plan Finds a way to use unworthy me!
What an amazing God, Loving Father and guide,
Who heard my voiceless plaintive plea.
