I'm a little worm!

I want a New Me!

Timmy lived in a lovely garden and every morning he would crawl up his favourite tree and lie there eating juicy leaves and watching the beautiful butterflies fly from flower to flower.  And then he would sigh a big sigh and sadly say, "I'm tired of being an ugly little worm.  If only I could fly like those butterflies.   Oh, I want a New Me!"

It's Getting Cold!

One day, Timmy noticed that winter was coming.  "Br-r-r!" he thought, "I need to crawl into a warm place to sleep and sleep."  And so he began to make himself a little silk cocoon house.  No one needed to show him how to do this because God had made Timmy.

Timmy worked on his little cocoon all day and but did not stop to eat leaves.  Not even one little juicy leaf!  Finally he finished and was so tired that he snuggled up inside his cocoon house and sealed the end shut.  Timmy then slept through the winter and right into spring, but during his long sleep, God's wonderful miracle had been taking place!

A New Creature!

One morning, Timmy awoke and felt very cramped inside his cocoon house.  He wiggled around and nibbled a hole in his cocoon and slowly he began to inch his way out of his little home.  "Ah," he thought, "That feels much better and the sun is warm.  I think I will stretch my wings a bit and ....."

Wings?  Did he say wings?  yes, God had changed him and his wish had come true!  He was no longer a little worm, but a beautiful butterfly!  With a happy heart, Timmy flew high in the air.   He flew from flower to flower and no one could find a happier little butterfly than Timmy, because God had given him a "New Me!"

God's Plan:

Boys and girls, God also has a wonderful plan for us.  John 3:16 says:

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, Jesus,
that whoever believes in Him will have eternal life."

God looks down and sees what kind of person you are.  If you are unkind and always doing wrong things, then only God can change you.  He can change you inside and make you into a loving and happy person.

Ask God:

How does He do this?  If you ask God to change you, Jesus comes to live inside you.  He cleans out all the bad things and helps you every day to do the right things.

Would you like to ask Jesus to come into your life?  If you do, He will change you and give you a "New Me!"

God bless.
