The Cactus and the Caterpillar. “That’s not what I Asked for!”

Once upon a time, a certain man asked God to give him a flower… and a butterfly.

But God gave him a cactus… and a caterpillar.

The man became very sad because he didn’t understand why God answered his request incorrectly.

He thought to himself: “Maybe it is because there are so many people asking him things all the time…” He then decided not to give it anymore thought.

After some time, the man went to check on the forgotten result of what he had asked from God.

To his surprise the once prickly cactus now had the most amazing flowers.

And the unsightly caterpillar had become a beautiful butterfly.

God never makes mistakes. His ways are always right, even if to our eyes everything seems to be going wrong.

If you asked God for something but received something else, trust in Him.

Believe that He will always give you what you need; at the right time. 

What you want is not always what you need… Since He is never wrong when He answers your prayers, look ahead without complaining or doubting.

The thorn of today… is the beautiful flower of tomorrow

  1. Thats a one thing I love about God, He always thinks a head, He is always giving us according to what we will become in the future. He knows best for us and sometimes we want to do things our own way, but as always it never works. We don't trust that that 'ugly' cactus or caterpillar in our life will one day be beautiful.

    "The thorn of today… is the beautiful flower of tomorrow"

    The key is trusting that God, has everything under control even when things don't, the way you want...
