A caterpillar only cares about what it desires
Its lust and its passions fuel its soul’s fires.
But this one was shown a new way to live
Not for itself but to pour out and give –
Because of what was graciously given to it
Loving arms saved it from the bottomless pit.
It built a coffin and got inside, and then
It emerged as a new creature and could abide in Him
By putting off the old man and putting on the new
Sins were left behind and life was renewed!
This was written for the Weekend Writing Prompt Anthology week 52 – Emergence. If you’d like to participate, the submission guidelines are here. (The deadline is August 10th!) Special thanks to Olivia for helping me write this one!
