The monarch butterfly is definitely a beauty to behold among the many creatures our awesome God has fashioned! But are you aware of the treacherous 2,000 mile journey this tiny being completes as she migrates from Canada to Mexico? And where can she find warmth during the colder months?
“Through many dangers, toils, and snares…” including predators and fierce storms, our Heavenly Father’s unique plan allows for many of these lovely insects to survive the unthinkable. The journey of the monarch is so reflective of how we as humans sometimes face impossible circumstances in our story of survival through this earthly life. We dodge the storms. We face brutal enemies. We experience hurtful situations. It is all under His protection and within His unique plan for our lives and our walk with Him. And one day, when we meet Him face to face, we will behold the beauty of His eternal plan as we worship Him forever.
