Read Time in the Cocoon, by Stephen Aterburn and David Stoop, at One
"We too have times of transition and metamorphosis, yet our remedy is not unlike the butterfly’s. If we try escaping God’s cocoon before He’s done transforming us, we risk undermining and delaying what He’s trying to do. So when you’re experiencing time in the cocoon, relax! In the stillness, you hear God. In the waiting, your character is formed. If you wait upon God and allow Him to release you from the cocoon, you’ll be strong and prepared to fly in ways you never could have if you’d left the cocoon too soon."
I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.
