Batman, suber man, suber woman, spider man, gren lantern, x-men, wolvering, the justis leage, the incredible, i want to be a part of them. I want o saver the world and still be albe t go to work in the morning. I want to look perfect in an imprefect socity. I want to stop tdistruction nad pain fomr happing and only crumble to criptinit.

I was talking ot a finred otnight and i saide someinthg with out tihnking. (i know big shock tlkaing to afrined nad not tihnking wow) And i siad We all wanted to be a super Hero at soem piont in time or someitnhg like that who knows. Adn after i said it i tohugh aoubt it and it is so true. I have thi s joke if some one tells me to get sleep i say Some one has to savce to save the world and it's my night job. But how meany of us ahve made out slefs super Heros. Well i gues to answer the qusiton you're gona need to knwo waht i eman by a suber hero so lets talk (oh snap dani wants to talk)

THere are two types of super heros. THe first one is soemihn that i tinhk alout of us are have or will strugul with. THe god super hero. I was talking to a friend (Yes my mom dsiced to pay my fnireds this week how nice of her) and she was saying how we try to make a god out of our self. ADn my frined we do. How menay time has soemtinhg hgone well and you ahve gone ooooo i did that. OR oh man that was all me baby alll me. Hoew emant times have you bene ahvein a relay realy good day adn gone i got it going on i got it going on bo yaaaaaaa. Dude ill rase my hand man to meany stink times for em to count. We piont to our slefs when it is all goingogood and said i made it good i maid it. IM A SUPER HERO.

The second super hero. I can do it all. I dont ened any one. I cna do it all alone. I cna handle it all. I've got it. YOu knwo wahtim tlkaing aobut you know thos times you took on to much. THos tiems that you dined help when all you need was it. THe itme you put on that amks and told ever oen that you were perfect beocen hay im a super Hero i dont need any one. I'm storng unuf i cna do it i can do it on my onw. How meany of you ahve ben ther how meany of you have done that. HAy im rasin my hadn. Ican handle the wait of the world all on my own I mena I AM A SUPER HERO.

Ifyou jump of a building you will fall to the ground. IF you try to kech an astrod falling to the erath you iwll die. IF you try to ru nacross water you will sink. IF you try ot cluimp up a walll i hope you like scraps and cuts on you're self/ IF you try to take on a trin so it ownt go of the trak wall the trian will win. IF you try to pick up a tree im sorry you cnat. If you try to fly you';re feet will hit the ground quickly after. If you try to use x-ray viosion well people are going to ask why you are staring at them. MY FRIEND YOU ARNT A SUPER HERO. I'll let you in on a secret no humman is a super hero.

Lets tlakaoubt the first super hero the humman god super hero. If oyu are god thne ther is no god befor you so that means that you are all powerful that you are all might you are the highest bieng. OK so what hpapens when life stinks on ice its on you. What hpapens wehn you ahd the worstr day ever forget stuff at hoe get spedding ticket and then burn dinner thats on you. Woops you let a sware word out at a techer that on oyu. If you are taking credit forth egood be ready to tkae credit for the bad. I got a quisont you go stnad at the top of a hill or mountin that over looks anytihng did you make that? Now listn the earth if it was jsuta few miles closer to the sun would be inahabbitable to life did you do that? No. Humans we are scared to death to dipend on anyone or anything els. You want toknow why people ares scerd of hight cosue htey are scared of fallin it's not hights any one is scared of it's the fact the could fall. You garinty there saftey 100 they wont be scared, but we dont trsut eachother unuf to think our safty will be garinted. If we are god thne hay i dont ahve to dipendon any one and if someinthg goes good sweat its on me. Listen listne close we arnt God, were nothing compared to him. You rember when you were realy little and a thunderstorm woke you up at night, im not tlaking little thunderstorms im tlaking like with hail adn this is like tornado allie thunderstors big bad boooming thunder lighting ever 5 secons hail the big storm, yeha you rember being scared of that. Ok now tell me you ithnk you are bigger thne the God who control that storm.Oh ok thats totly logical. Ok im not the smartest perosn in the world, but hello hwat in the stinkin world are you think. THere is a dude, God up ther contorling that storm nad we have the guts the adasty to say i am god. What are we think?

Ok let tlakaoubt tihs. I cna do it all on my own, i got it i got it. Ok so i was in 7th grade im wlaking down the hall way jsut talkin with a frined all of the sudden im laying flat on my back note books scaderd ever ware. A 8th grader and slammed into as he was running as iquikcly gather all my stuff an uper class men a senore offer se his hadn. But i got iths i didnt take the hadn i didnt tkae the help. I got tihs I Can do tihs "IT is not good for man to be alone" God said that God ther creter of the univers siad it is not good for you to be along. THis tihng life yhea it;s called a battle ever day is strugle and listen i dont want you to do it alone adn you knwow ahti acutl wehn you to ahve another perosn to hlep oyu out. I got tihs i can do it on my wn, no no we cnat we cna not do it on our wonr. From perons experins and frineds nad everinth i have learnd that we all have a braking piont. we cna only hadnle so much. You know thos hangers you get from the dipartment stors. Yeah thos ones well ahve you ever bent one of thme beofr? Ok well if you ben on the sides you cna make it toch it;s self andit wont brake. But if you bend it down the midle it brakes in half so easly. WE all hav abrkaing piont we all have apiont ware we cant handle it any mroe. THats why it isnt good for man to be alone. We all need someoen there wether to listne to us, wipe ther tears, jsut give us a hug, or nock sens it to the stubern head we ahve on our sholders. It is not good for man to be alone cosue he isnt a super hero

A super hero saves the wordl comes in nad saves the day. Adn someof you might be saying ok if you are stink tellin my i cant be a super hero then who is one? See ther eis this dude i tlak aoubt him alot in thes gblogs, Yeah Aba, Yawah, Hosana, Holy Spirt, God, Jesus. OK now that is the sicest super hero ever. You cnata hve a better super power thne being omnipresint. Being the beign adn the end. You cant have better super pwoer thne creating the world. MAking the earth. You cant have a better super wwooer thne one that would sens a son to a place to save poelpw ho have consitnly spit in you;re face adn rturn there baks on you and iwll continu to do it. YOu cnat ahv e better supper powere then the Lov of God.

If you have ever seen Batman ether old school or new school or wht ever. YOu might knowaoubt the bat sing. It is pritty much this hug spot light the shnie in Gothum city when soemthing is going wrong adn they need batman. But what if ever tiem the btman sing turn on a normal humman showed up and siad i will save gothum city. I'll tell you what would happen bye bye gothum city. What if ever tiem the batman callujns sing went of some peron came in adn siad I got tihs Im asuper hero i cna hnadl it. Ill tel lyou the woudlg et laid out on the back with the vilin laugh in ther face. IF youhave ever seen the Incredible you will know whatim tlkaingaoubt. Buddy or increiboy is not a realy super hero but he so despritly wants to be one so what does he do he amkes hims self into one. And as a result theres a train creahc and an eveil guy gets away and this bad stuff jsut happens. So who is answer the batman sing in oyu're world? Arey ou goignto kepe bieng the priten super hero who couse trian reckes and get laid out o nther back with avilin laugh over thme. Or are you going ot let a real Super Hero do ther job? Who is answer the batmen call in you're city? You or God?

Distent, Father, Friend

So i have this on going thearie. And for thos of you who know me this might be were you turn away from the computer screen and stop listening. (or mabby that is just my dibate voice) I tihnk our faith depends on how we look at God. So far i found 4 ways to look at God. No if you dsigreey with me thne say so at the end of this blog. I tihnk though we can dived it into 4 groups. Andi thnik how we look at God can make alot of how we realt with God.

The frist one i base off of my Grandparints. I love my moms parents, they are strong Christne and i respect thme soe mcuh for it. How i tihnk they see God though is more of a distent figure larg and incharg. If were on a roda He is ahea d of you laying the path, the Bible is a book of rules. No pierces no tattos. I tihnk they take the Biblein a very strick kinda faith way. I resently read a book its called Inherit the Wind and it this is siad "Beocuse he was looking for God too high up and too far away" I tihnk the tihng is God isnt a distent God. It is sead theat the tabernalce closly resembled the ISrelits houses i itnhk God want s us to know im wright hear. God t's jstua God all aoubt rules adn stuff He loves us and cares for us. And God wants to be near to us I tihn kthe tihng is if we look at God like this we start trying to look for him to far up and start loosing some of the love He has.

The second way i think is how alot of people look at God now. Father, dad, daddy what ever other termy ou want ot use. We get this i boelve from the fact that that is how JEsus refrinces God quit often and it is brought up mulitlbe times in the Bible. A dad is some one who meany people look up to. Some people can tell story's about how there dad did this and this and they rember doing this and this with there dad. When you talk aoubvt dads we think of an athority figure. Girls someimtes think aoubt a dad to wlak thme down the iel on there weding day. Some people see soemone who has saported thme in what they wanted to do. Someone who has taght thme so much. I think this is why so meany people draw to seeing God as father. We oftne think of all the good, THe dad who when we were little picked us up cosue we scrapeed our knee the guy who vowed to protcet us. Adn we see Goid that way the one who pickes us up when we are hurt who holds us who si so sotnrg and loves us adn dosnt liek seieng us hurt. We see God as an athority figure someone to look up to. And for some God replaces the father gap they ahve wether they have never meat there dad, there dad died, their dad walked out, waht ever the case for some this fills a gap that they ahve and that is why. And if you see God as a Father power to you may God blesse you. The only thing is i itnhk there are a couple of draw bakcs to this one. My magger one is this. THere are some who looking at God as a father cna hinder ther realtionship with him. For some when the word father, dad is said they cring. When the word daddy crosses someones lips some are filled with pain. What ever reosn mabby there dad has let thme down, dipionted thme, walked out, hit them, abused them waht ever it is there are soemone who the word dad brings pain. And to say that God is you're dad hurts osme. The thing is to say God is you're dad for some birngs back horrible memteos adn they go idont want that God then couse the only thing they know aoubt dads is that they hurt people. Anfd thie tihng is his auther personaly feals God cna be clsoer then a dad. Admit it how meany of oyu tell you're dad ever thing? Yeah thats what i tohugh. The thing is God wants us to be completely transparent with Him. And perosnly i dont see that as meany people with there dad.

Ok number 3God as a best frined. This reosning can be jsutfiedd by How Jesus was with the dsicibles. For them he wansts soem guy sintg in heaveon he was there frineds someone to talk to some one to be with. The thing is i itnhk a best frined is kinda waht God is someitmes. He is wright there wehn you fall. Have you ever ahd one of thos nights ware you sut need ot tlak or cry or waht ever adn you foudn you';res eslf in a best frineds arms with them letingyou vent or cry or wahte ver oyu needed to do. That is waht God wants i tnhk he want sot be ther for us when we are crying and just end to tlak or vent or waht ever els. But also he wasnt to be ther when we hare ahving the most asum amsing day ever and you jsut cant wipe the smile of you're face. Totly complty transparint. I mean talk to all the time tell everithng to. I got tihs book its called Girl tlak with God. IT sia na asming book that i got for christmese and i loved it. But tihnk ti demonstrates this prity mcuh the book is jsut full of convesitions between God and a girl and it;s like tlakingto a firned a best frined. God i dontithnk whatnest o be way distne but wright her neer He wants oyu to tlak to Him to leanr aobut him like you learn aoubt a best frined. There are drwo backs to this one God is not on our levely He is a higher bieng but if you can keep that in mind by ahvineg this typr of relisont ship. A best firned someone might evne say lover relationsship then and rember that He is over you a God all mighted who created you thne that kidna of relisotnsihp totly works.

The last one is one i didnt think of. After tlakignto a friend about this theire or waht ever you want ot call it. She siad what aobut a mixture of all 3, THe POwer of the fsirt the stragt of the second adn he transperince of the 3. Waht if we put all 3 tegether and saw God. THere is no hummern word foris what is we call is ther hum WCGR the wiked cool God relaitonship. THe thing is we rely cnat comper this to any humman resotioship it only work with God and for some thay might be difcult. THis reltionship bineg the strogn pionts of all 3 of the other snad makes thme into one. A trlaiots tolty diffner then any hummen relaiontsihp unconberible.

See so i;ve siad all of tihs and soemof you mgiht be saying oh she thinks this one is the best. THe truth is none of them are the best. THe thing is we will all loook at God diffnretly. WE all see God diffrently. I tihnk that is the piont though God never said you have to look at me this way. I tihn God wants us to all loook at him in diffnret ways. I dont think there is a better way. I think the thing that has to be the pasis is that God is love . But the thing God is diffrnet for ever one ever one looks at Him diffnretly and ever one sees HIm diffnretly/ MAbby that is waht this divin creater was tring to od. So how do you look at God?
