My Hero!

A woman prays while her shadow is a superhero.

There seems to be so many books, movies and TV shows about superheroes. Due to a freak accident or twist of genetics a person has super strength or can see through walls. One of my personal favorites is Captain America, a science project of chemicals that were injected into his otherwise small physical body and radiated to turn him into the ultimate crime fighting machine.

Who wouldn’t want to be given the gift of super human powers? To be able to right the wrongs that surround us. Because let’s face it, sometimes circumstances can make us feel helpless and defenseless. I think that is the whole point.

God made us with weaknesses and vulnerabilities. He made us to want and need Him.

If we had super strength and could repel evil intentions with our sheer presence we wouldn’t need God. It would go to our heads and pride would consume us. We would become totally self-sufficient relying on our own abilities to make our way in this life.

Unfortunately, many are doing just that; except they don’t have super powers. They are ordinary people that are trying to make their way in the dark.  Without God there is no light.

Have you ever tried to walk around in the dark? It’s tough to do but after a while your eyes adjust to the dim lighting and you may forget that you are in the dark. You might bump into things, but that is just par for the course. You may begin to think that is how it is for everyone. Except, it isn’t!

The true source of superpowers can only be found on our knees. So instead of wishing for superpowers, maybe we should turn to God. He is the source of light and the ultimate superhero.  He is my Hero!
