Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

November 09, 2011 (superman)


When I was very young,
I used to be plagued by nightmares
of monsters.

Personally, I think it was an excuse
to run over to my parent's bedroom
and jump into bed with them.

After a few times trying to allay
my fears through reasoning,
my father walked me back to my bed and
explained to me that all I had to do
was to play I was Superman
and put those monsters in their place.

Watching Superman on TV
assured me that there was no monster
or evil character that Superman could not handle.
It worked... and to this day
I have an uncanny ability to make “right”
my nightmares (dreams).

Today, however, my source of power
does not come through a mythical superman
but through the love and grace
of our all powerful Lord.

I pray all of you will come to know
the peacefulness and joy
of our Lord and Savior,
Jesus Christ.

“The salvation of the righteous
comes from the Lord;
he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
The Lord helps them and delivers them;
he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
because they take refuge in him.”
- Psalm 37:39,40 NIV

If you were really Superman, you were my all-time hero! But, like you, Jesus is still my Savior.
