Yes, it’s true that when you look at me, you may see fear, you may see worry, you may see stress, you may even see me cry, but those emotions are part of what it means to be human. And I am, after all, only human. As a human, I am not ashamed of those emotions because I have learned that sometimes it is necessary to shatter the present to build a stronger tomorrow.
I loved the sitcom Scrubs; its opening theme song ended with the words I can’t do this all on my own, I’m no Superman. How often have we looked at life as a long dark hallway filled with pain and despair and no way out? How often have we felt all alone in these moments wishing anyone could help us find our way out. In these moments, we need to lean on our faith. You see, our faith tells us we are never all alone; there is no reason we need to be superman; the Lord is always there. He always is looking out for and protecting us, for we are his children. It may appear to us at times that he is not, but he never has, and he will never forsake us, and when the time is right, he will rain down on us with his blessings. Remember, you can do this because you are not on your own. The Lord is your superman.
