I am always looking for things to write about. While I was reading on MyKLove this morning, I came this article: My Superhero Identity and it really hit me in the gut. I mean…..Who did you look up to in the superhero world? Which one was your “Number One Person” ? I have to admit that I agree with Pastor Joesy about Wonder Woman. I did have some of the same thoughts about Wonder Woman. But to tell you truth, I didn’t identify with a hero at all, but a little bit of a villain.
My person was Cat Woman. My life kinda mirrors hers, yes, I even stole and made some destruction in my time. Doesn’t most teenagers to some extent? I was a mouse coming up. I know….Now, that is hard to believe with my loud mouth and direct questions, but I didn’t know how to stand up for myself. I was always looking for the approval of a man because I never got the approval of my father. He wanted a boy and I defiantly was not that. He did teach me to have a firm handshake. I have be told that I could brake someone’s hand with my handshake. LOL
Cat Woman was weak in the first place and a little helpless stepped on mouse who didn’t know how to stand up for herself. Then the frightful night came and she got taken by the cats, only to awake to a brand new day. She discovered that she was more with the help of the cats, and that is when she was turned to hurt men because she saw them as the ones that put her down.
I was this weak wallflower like Cat Woman until a man beat me so bad that I almost lost one of my children and I finally found the courage to call the police and send him to jail. The judge then sent me to AL-ANON. In that first year I finally found that I was not this weak little thing that most people in my life had told me I was. I also found out that I had a voice and more strength to stand on my own two legs without depending on a man for everything. I took my kids out of a bad situation and tried to raise them on my own.
Now my Superhero is Jesus. I will follow Him anywhere. He is my Lord and Savior. I love Him very much. God is my Father and is Love. He is teaching me how to Love better and intimately. I also love him. I am filled with the Holy Spirit. I listen to him all the time so that I can know what God wants me to read in His Word, study and take into my heart, and what He wants me to do and say and know. Praise the Lord for His grace and mercy!!!
