What’s Your Super Power?

Job 5:10-11 "He gives rain to the earth And sends water upon the fields. He raises the lowly up high, And raises up the dejected one to salvation."

Hi, my name is Robin, I’m going through a divorce, I have hormonal acne, and I’m a child of addiction. 😁 What’s your Super Power?! Haha We laugh. But how often do we upon meeting someone do one of two things, conceal our insecurities, or blurt them out before they notice them first as a defense mechanism? I do something a little different. At this point in my life I assume people see me as privileged, so I like to tell them about all of my hardships for them to know that I’m not privileged. When I was younger, and poor, I would brag on my goals and abilities to show them that I was more. We always like to shield ourselves from other people’s opinions about us. In the book of Job, after Satan had killed all of Job’s livestock, servants, children, and plagued him with painful boils all over his body. Job didn’t lose faith in God. He lost faith in himself. He cursed and questioned his own existence. “What’s the point?” He asked his friends. Yes, his friends. Who came to sit with him for seven days. And his loyal friend said “You used to strengthen weak hands. Your words would raise up anyone stumbling. And you would strengthen those whose knees were buckling.” His friend assured him of his great qualities, and abilities. Man, I could write so many more posts on this book.Β  But I think you’re starting to catch my drift. Go read the book of Job. You will not be disappointed. I always wanted to fly. I still do! That would be my Super Power if I could choose one. But I was thinking about all the ways that I can fly. I can be limitless, by not limiting myself to other people’s standards of me. I can be weightless, by not carrying around my heavy baggage. I can soar, by my ability to keep going, keep dreaming, keep leading… God didn’t inspire my mom to name me Robin for nothing! The day I was born, she said she looked at me, and thought “She looks like a little bird” Isn’t that Tweet? Job 5:10-11 “He gives rain to the earth And sends water upon the fields. He raises the lowly up high, And raises up the dejected one to salvation.” God has equipped you with all the right tools to be Mighty. What’s your SUPER POWER? πŸ’ͺπŸ¦Έβ€β™‚οΈπŸ¦Έβ€β™€οΈβ€
