Stealth Super Powers
I read this in Pscyhology Today: The human body can unleash some amazing RESERVES that deadens "temporary" pain. So in a time when stealth reserves are needed, it's possible to become super-powered.
Those life-saving people are the epitome of Super Heroes. Think about our armed forces who do the inexplainable in serving us and our country. Think about firefighters and police who have the uncanny ability to operate daily on those reserves while handling real life situations that call for spontaneous, heroic faith that is swift to action -- those situations that don’t allow for time to survey the situation or pray for hours to muster up courage. But NOTHING is impossible....especially when God is the biggest part of the equation.
You and I are just common, ordinary, Clark Kent kind-of-folks that are just hard working, doing-what-we-have-to-do to get by. Yes, we love and trust God for sweet calm in the storms of life. We would rather be stress free and care free kind-of-folks.
Oh, but wait just a minute, Mr. Postman!!! We really shouldn't settle for being the Clark Kent kind-of-folks. In the midst of the most horrific, overwhelming, challenging, faith-tested, heartbreaking times....we don't have to run and hide. We just activate our "RESERVES". And those reserves are our spiritual “Superman”, infused with God’s wisdom and power, who takes charge of the siutation. We remember THE Superman who lives in us -- God Almighty!! "Through our God we shall do valiantly. It is He who will tread down our enemies." Psalm 108:13
There just may be situations today that call for an immediate response of faith -- like a friend in pain, and we quickly offer to pray with them, or someone in despair, and we don’t hesitate to encourage them, or helping a friend in need, or taking a leap of faith in making a family decision or jumping into a new business opportunity. Let’s stealth up with the knowledge of WHO lives big in us. Let's go to the place of strength, whether it's a phone booth like Clark Kent used, or to the THRONE booth where God’s “super” powers kick in and we make the difference in our world today!!
Expect GREAT THINGS from God. Attempt GREAT THINGS from God.

It was just "puppy love" that brought my Honey and I together at the ages of 13 and 12. We eventually married at the "mature" ages of 18 and 17. And that's when our faith journey began. Over the years, we encountered many opportunities to stretch our faith, especially when our babies were very sick, when financial situations were out of control, and when our marriage relationship had some rocky periods.But we made it through those times by our strong faith and trust in God. But never was our faith more challenged, than when my 63 years "young" husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 Kidney Cancer. Fortunately, the 44 years of marriage and faith-building experiences, caused us to "weather the storm", and still remain in peace and strong in our faith. This "peace that passed understanding" compelled me to blog and share the principles that caused our faith to be unwavering and continues to give me the joys of living large! I'm still here, so I'm not done!. I pray you will grow in your faith as you, not only read the blogs, but apply the principles to your own life -- for the good times, and especially for those times that seem so overwhelming.
