Not too long ago, I walked through a local park and saw a beautiful butterfly fluttering about. I had camera with me and tried to take picture of it but it flew away before I could take a picture of the butterfly. Feeling a bit disappointed, so I gently asked God if He would bring butterfly closer to me so I could take a beautiful shot. It didn’t happen that day. Of course I was slightly disappointed but still trusted God. I wasn’t sure what His answer was going to be – Yes or no. If it were going to be a yes, then it would be on His timing not my own!
Well… today I had a very pleasant surprise from God. I went to this local park again and saw probably around five to seven butterflies. I felt as if He gave me much more than what I originally asked for! Not just one butterfly, but numerous butterflies! I thought this was a good lesson in waiting for His timing and that He never forgets our prayer (which I did completely forgot). My prayer initially was for one butterfly at that time, but it felt as if God was saying, “I’ve got something better for you! Just wait and see” and then BAM! He gives it to you =)
