About Struggling...

Post by Imran on Mon 25 Apr 2016, 6:05 pm

A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day
a
small opening appeared. He sat and watched
the
butterfly for several hours as it struggled to
force its
body through that little hole. Then it seemed
to stop
making any progress. It appeared as if it had
gotten
as far as it could, and it could go no further.
So the man decided to help the butterfly. He
took
a pair of scissors and snipped off the
remaining bit
of the cocoon.
The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a
swollen body and small, shriveled wings.
The man continued to watch the butterfly
because
he expected that, at any moment, the wings
would
enlarge and expand to be able to support the
body, which would contract in time.
Neither happened! In fact, the butterfly spent
the
rest of its life crawling around with a swollen
body
and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly.
What the man, in his kindness and haste, did
not
understand was that the restricting cocoon and
the struggle required for the butterfly to get
through the tiny opening were Allah's way of
forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly
into
its wings so that it would be ready for flight
once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.
Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need
in
our lives. If Allah allowed us to go through our
lives without any obstacles, it would cripple us.
We would not be as strong as what we could
have been. We could never "fly"!
I asked for Strength.........
And Allah gave me Difficulties to make me
strong.
I asked for Wisdom.........
And Allah gave me Problems to solve.
I asked for Prosperity.........
And Allah gave me Brain and Brawn to work.
I asked for Courage.........
And Allah gave me Danger to overcome.
I asked for Love..........
And Allah gave me Troubled people to help.
I asked for Favours.........
And Allah gave me Opportunities.
I received nothing I wanted ........
I received everything I needed!
