“I can see the future.”
“I can fly.”
“I have super strength.”
“I can move extremely fast.”
You’ll definitely admire a person who could do even just one of those superpowers. And who else can do all those, but a mother?
I can see the future
I don’t need Wanda Vision to do that. A mother’s mind is more far-reaching.
When others see the fuming sun, I see raindrops falling in a little while, so I’ll have my kid bring a raincoat to school. Are you like that a mom, too? Or is your mom like that?
And admit it, moms already have their own version of their kids when they grow up. Name it—a doctor, an engineer, a nurse, a pilot, etc.
That’s how far our minds can go for our kids.
I can fly
I don’t need to borrow Superman’s suit.
When traffic is bad and we know for sure that our kids are worriedly waiting in school, hungry and alone in the room, we FLY just to get there in no time.
We fly to rescue our kids from any threat of trouble. We fly to respond to our child’s needs.
We fly off the ground, even we’re not a bird nor a plane…
I have super strength
I don’t have to be mad to gain it. That’s my edge over the Hulk!
I can go to the supermarket with a baby in the carrier, with one hand trying to catch my fidgety toddler and the other hand pushing the cart or lifting a box full of grocery items.
I can go home complete. I’m a survivor.
I can move extremely fast
I challenge the Flash. I can wash the dishes, give two kids a bath, take a bath myself, and iron clothes good for a week—in less than one hour.
I guess it’s every mother’s “mandatory” skill: Doing more in less time.
That was quick!
See those superheroes in me and in all the moms?
Without those powers and proper support from our family and friends, we might die in exhaustion and isolation. But thanks be to all the mothers’ father—God!
As He promised in Hebrews 13:5
“I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
His assurance of company and grace enables us to fulfill our overwhelming responsibilities and quit giving up. The LORD has blessed us with all the love we can pass on to our families so we can endure the challenges and fully embrace motherhood.
His instruction gives us a clear vision of how we should prepare for our kids’ future.
His promises help us train our kids to fly and soar high.
His power keeps us strong to serve our family’s needs.
His ways provide the means and resources for us to accomplish all our tasks.
It’s great that we don’t need those fictional superhero characters because we have one true GOD, the wonderful source of incredible abilities.
So, in the middle of writing this, my baby starts crying. This is not a job for Superman but for me. God called me to do this!
What’s my superpower? I’m a mom!
