"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

a gift named prayer

in times of vulnerability, seek Him.

may you always find abundance and protection in His grace.

may you find the audience of His earth angels
in times when you need attention.

may your troubles tremble in His presence
when you are in no shape to fight back.

may He do your battles for you when you call
and even when you don't.

when you are down and reduced to crying,
may He pick you up and give you a comforting pat.

in times when you're feeling you're about to hit rock bottom,
may sad memories loosen their clout and give you up
so the happy ones He already laid on your path will redeem you.
there is no hitting rock bottom for people who fully understand what happiness is.

in times of shaking, may you be unshakable.
keep the faith. He has your riches.

may you always honor that He planted the best in you.
mediocrity is not His mark, excellence is.

may you find yourself always in the crowd of champions.
may you be inspired unceasingly.

in everything you do, may excellence be your standard
not for anything else but for His glory.

may you make His will your will --
it's never meant to be the other way around
or any other way, for that matter.

may the biggest and grandest room in your heart be for Him,
put Him first and He will honor you.

when He honors,
there are no hell days nor boring days.
there is prosperity and a life lived effortlessly.

may He always honor you.

may His favors always overtake you
so you will never ever find yourself in want.

may you always be tuned,
let Him work on every aspect of your life.

allow Him His ways in you and He will fill your cup.

may you grow in strength each day
and may you live immensely blessed 'til the end of your days.
