The Butterfly Circus

Mr. Mendez: “A man, if you can call him that. Who God himself has turned his back upon -”

Will: “Stop it! Why would you say that?”

Mr. Mendez: “Because you, believe it.”

We might not use those words, but so many of us believe we are neglected, or forgotten entirely, by God. We’ve experienced loss, sickness, grief, ruin, and shame. We wonder why it seems “everyone else” gets a pass, yet we struggle every day. We’ve blamed the world, our parents, the boss, the government, and ourselves, but there’s no one left to point the finger at. So we cast blame towards God.

He made this world. He made me this way. He created my circumstances. It’s His fault!

Oh, but I wonder, what if there’s more to the story? What if the song’s not finished? What if…

When you have 20 minutes, watch The Butterfly Circus.

Will is you. Will is me. Magnificent.

      Isn’t it amazing how 20 minutes can make such an impact? Obviously, it speaks to people in extraordinary circumstances, but the message is true for all of us. Thanks for checking out the blog!
