Has anyone ever experienced the "superheroe" syndrom in life? At this young age, i've experienced it before. You know when the prayers start
becoming petitions, rather than a conversation with God, they become a list of "wants, and "ill you's"?
You know what i mean, the "Will you help me with this God?" type of prayers...or even the mindset of being so involved in church and/or in your own personal life that you begin to think and act as if you can handle things on your own, at your own pace.
If experiencing that ,there should come a time that you should slow down and realize, YOU ARE NOT ALONE IN LIFE. Truth is no matter what situation surpasses, God knows what will and is to come. Before any of us were created he planned out our lives and knew what our faults would be. There is nothing you can accomplish without God, he is the provider that provides you with the strength to do so.
When you begin to feel a sort of selfish feeling, it is normal because we are human and our flesh often leads us to decisions that can harm us. But you have to recognize the selfishness and the fact that you need your God ,and if you do that is a good sign, a great one at that! Gods guidance is the best you will ever have, but one should always cherish this.
As often as we might think,that we cannt do something, the fact of the matter is God has great faith in us, more than we have in ourselves. He sees the good in us, the greatness in us because we were made to follow his steps. We are to be Christ-like.
When first making a decision to be baptized under Jesus Christ , i made a pact to always place him first in my life. At the tender age of 14 i made that decision and i am a living testimony of a God fearing person. Its the tough times,and selfish moments that God placed in my life who made me who i Am today. I have learned to Trust in God and rely on his love and under his authority.
He has the final say in life, not man.
Psalm 55:22 (The Message)
22-23 Pile your troubles on God's shoulders—
he'll carry your load, he'll help you out.
He'll never let good people
topple into ruin.
But you, God, will throw the others
into a muddy bog,
Cut the lifespan of assassins
and traitors in half.
And I trust in you.
Forgiveness,Trust,Justice,Love,Faithfullness,Desire,Dreams, Salvation,Divine Purpose....The list can go on and on about how i describe my God.
The point is he is a just and fair God, one should fear only him! He is jealous for his child, and if you have been called and are in anyway dealing with discouragement, selfishness, The "Superheroe" syndrom ...STOP AND THINK LONG AND HARD. He hears our every thought before we think it. He loves us so....and as long as God grants me the gif of life i will live to serve him. Our God is great,holy and mighty. Theres nothing i want more than to live by his side. You are all beautiful,let his love shine through you each day.
Before i conclude my rather long ramblings, i end with my favorite verse...the verse that is engraved in my heart and thoughts whenever i think of his mercy and grace.
Philippians 3:10 (The Message)
10-11I gave up all that inferior stuff so I could know Christ personally, experience his resurrection power, be a partner in his suffering, and go all the way with him to death itself. If there was any way to get in on the resurrection from the dead, I wanted to do it.
Love and happiness, Jazapo
