“Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” Matthew 6:27

The Mighty Worrier–by Tammy Glover

I have a confession to make.  For most of my life, I have been living in the delusion that I am a super hero.  By day, I’m the mild mannered employee, friend, sister and daughter but as soon as soon as there is a hint of trouble, I throw on my cape and turn into:  The Mighty Worrier Princess.

I can’t fly.  I don’t have super human strength or speed.  I can’t turn invisible.  I’m not a mind reader and I most certainly can’t move objects with my thoughts.  My super power is worrying and I can worry like nobody’s business.

Now, like all super heroes, I have a weakness.  My weakness is reality.  In reality, my super power is useless.  It doesn’t protect anyone.  It doesn’t solve any problems.  It doesn’t get bills paid and it doesn’t find jobs.  What it does is makes things worse.  I get migraines, sick to my stomach and my heart beats too fast.  I also get depressed, frustrated and angry.

Being a super hero is exhausting and I want out!  I’m ready to retire.  It’s time to put aside my delusional thinking and to call on a true super hero.  He’s omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient.  He cures diseases.  He has an army of angels.  He created the heavens and the earth.  He even conquered death.  Superman, Batman and Spiderman don’t have anything on him.  His name is Jesus and He loves me and is waiting on me to stop this foolishness and call on Him.  By the way, He’s waiting for you too.

  1. Thanks Tammy. Love the connection between super heroes and the way we live our lives. Yep, I used to worry, now I let go and let God! You soon see the difference.

  2. I absolutely love this! We spend so much time trying to figure things out in our own strength instead of relying on the One who has ALL power in His hands. Keep up the good work.
