If I were a super hero part 2

The Bible has a great solution for all of us 🙂

I Corinthians 13:4-7,11
“4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.11 When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things.”

It describes ever so clearly what sort of super hero I should be! A loving, patient, kind, not jealous, boastful, proud or rude one. It doesn’t demand its own way. NOT IRRITABLE and keeps no records of wrongs. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful and endures through every circumstance.

As I stated earlier, I turned GREEN with rage as a child  and even now.  There is also a verse that deals with that!  Verse 11 says,

“When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things.”

So now my task before me stands.  What super hero should I be???

If I were a super hero part 1

If I were a super hero, I would be a combination of Elastigirl from Disney and Pixar’s movie The Incredibles, and the Incredible Hulk.  When I get sooooo stretched out I turn into the Incredible Hulk. Not a proud moment for me I must say when I get so riled, but goodness me,  my kids know how to push my buttons!

I remember being angry as a child. I was teased by someone in our family and I would stand like the Incredible Hulk with my fists to my side, sucking air through my teeth saying, “DON’T MAKE ME MAD!” Of course, who could resist that invitation?!  Scuffles would ensue and “the referee” would break it up.  

As a mom, I feel more Elastigirl most days because there are sooo many things that pull and stretch me.  It is hard being a mom.  It is also wondeful being a mom.  I often forget that I am a mother because God chose me to be a mother. When I am like the Incredible Hulk I am not being godly. I am being a selfish person who doesn’t want to be pushed or bothered.  Elastigirl would probably make a good super hero, but the Incredible Hulk is more like.

😦

 Easily pushed to a rage. NOT GOOD!

So. Now that I have written this, what shall I do about it?
