I'm No Superman...

 I can’t do this all on my own… I’m no Superman...

Watching, Wishing, Waiting...
Each day rises and sets… in its own beautiful way, seize the beauty (The Passing of Time). With each day rising and setting in its own unique way, we should reflect and Thank God. But sometimes we feel confused, anxious, overwhelmed, etc, the list goes on…

When this happens, this is the time we need to stop what we are doing and take five to ten minutes and talk with God. That’s all, just five to ten minutes! (The length of three music videos or funny cat videos on YouTube). You don’t have to fold your hands, kneel before, or go stand in the corner. All you need to do is just talk with him. It can be a soft whisper or a silently in your head, but as long as you take the time to acknowledge, accept, open up, and be willing to give yourself to Him then He is listening and waiting to hear your praise, confessions, wishes, your praise, and take on your troubles/anxiety with you.

“Do not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” Philippians 4:6

I’m No Superman….
Okay, so this posting really hit home today. I was planning on the next post to be about “Heaven on Earth” Which is already formed in my head, I continually find inspiration in everywhere I look and the most unusual places, faces, and unusual times. So with that, this post needed to get out ASAP.

“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you” 1 Peter 5:7

Starting my first semester of my PhD, starting new research, classes, etc, etc… I can easily say that I feel overwhelmed most of the days each week. To the common bystander, I may not give off that overwhelmed/stressed atmosphere that is overloading me. But it is there, loitering in my mind and presence. So today, while talking with a special someone, I was reminded of the best-all time solution, which was to persevere. Not only persevere, but persevere with God at my side.

Persevere: verb \ˌpər-sə-ˈvir\: to continue doing something or trying to do something even though it is difficult.

Persevere, that’s a strong word. When I think of it, I think of GOD. God wants us to succeed. However, to succeed, we need to persevere through the good times and bad times. We can only do that by continuing to have Him with us, not only during the bad times = when we need God most, but also during the good times in our life. Through the good and bad times, we need keep Him close, always. (The Peaks & Valleys).

So, if you have read my last two posts – The Peaks & Valleys and The Passing of Time, you may start to see a pattern, which this is something constantly I am going through and will continue to go through. So I encourage you to remind yourself; “Today, isn’t the end of the ride… your Journey is only beginning.” Each day, you will see you can’t do this all on my own, you’re no Superman/Superwoman. Therefore, I encourage you to seek God’s help along the way to relieve your anxiety, stress, fears, overwhelming thoughts and daily struggles. Please continue to constantly seek Him to help you overcome obstacles and remind yourself you are only human. I hope you realize this and turn to God, not only during the bad, but also the good times too.

“Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies” Psalm 36:5 

I know can’t do this all on my own, I’m no Superman.
