Today's Meditation

Everyday, as soon as I get out of bed, I check my email. I know, I know, but it's for a good reason! 
Every morning, I receive an email called "Today's word" from Joel Osteen. Sometimes, certain ones speak to me over others. Today was one of those. I just thought I'd share:

Break Out of Your Cocoon
"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind…"
(Romans 12:2, NIV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
On the inside of each one of us is a blessed, prosperous, victorious person. This person is free from addictions and bad habits, confident and secure in God. But just because that’s in you doesn’t mean it’s going to automatically come out.
In today’s scripture, that word “transformed” in the original language is “metamorpho.” It’s where we get our word “metamorphose.” We know how a caterpillar metamorphoses into a butterfly. This is saying that if you meditate on God’s Word, then a transformation will take place.
Think about the little caterpillar. It’s very plain, nothing really special about it. At a certain point, it forms a cocoon. The metamorphose starts to take place. It’s a process. Little by little it changes. One day, it begins to push out of the cocoon. Before long, it goes from being one of the plainest insects to being one of the most beautiful. Instead of having to crawl on the ground and squirm around, it can now fly wherever it wants to go. Today, why don’t you break out of your cocoon? Believe that God is at work in you. Believe that He has good plans for you. Believe that He will complete every good work that He’s started in your life!
Father, thank You for the good plan You have for me. Thank You for Your Word which transforms me into Your image. I choose to trust, I choose to believe, and I choose to follow Your Word which is life to my soul in Jesus’ name. Amen.
— Joel & Victoria Osteen
