Finding Wonder Woman

There are days which stretch our physical and mental capabilities. We are forced by circumstances to reach deep within ourselves and find Wonder Woman or Superman. The only way I know to do that is to tether myself to my Creator and climb the mountain set before me. If I lift my eyes in those moments when the rock-strewn path starts to fall beneath my feet and call out to Him, my fear dissipates. I become calm and unafraid. I forget my physical limitations and draw from His strength. He is always there to sustain me.

When challenges along the way seem too big  to overcome, I remember who I am and Who is travelling with me. I forget any negative thought that I have mental or physical limitations. When faced with an obstacle I have no way of going around or through or over, all I need is a little faith and an humble prayer and “POOF!” the obstacle disappears.

Many in this world do not understand this kind of power. The power of God-given strength, determination and unwillingness to give up is readily available to everyone. All it takes is faith the size of a mustard seed. I learned this from my Savior, Jesus Christ.

When that mountain looms ahead larger than when I started out, I try to remember what the view is from the summit. It is amazing to look back and see what I have accomplished and look forward to see the beauty looming ahead and  behold a majestic scene filled with awesome unlimited potential.

During the climb my physical, mental and spiritual being grows in endurance. I literally feel younger than a sexagenarian when I’ve overcome the bounds of doubt, fear and inhibition. I’ve grown. It’s been a productive day of feeling more alive  than I’ve felt in a long time! I’ve found through Him I can do anything. I can reach any goal. All I have to do is see myself through His perception of who I am and not my own.
