My kryptonite

If you were a superhero, what would be your kryptonite, draining your energy?

Yeah, that one is easy. Self doubt, worry, and stress.That's what drains me now, so I think it's safe to say that if I were a superhero it would still be the case.

As a christian I know better than to allow these things to rule me. But they are sneaky little demons, slinking their way into my thoughts and my dreams. They start small, but slowly build and grow until they overwhelm me spirit and cut me off from all that I hold truly dear.

Can I tell you a secret? These demons have come very close to destroying my marriage. My worry, stress and doubt coupled with his drove a wedge in our relationship. It created a deep well of hurt and uncertainty. But we are overcoming this. We are working together to rebuild what has been torn apart. And we will succeed. Because we truly love each other, and because we are joined together by God on this life journey. He is my rock, my shelter, my best friend, my biggest fan. The man placed in my life by God himself to be my other half, my mate, my earthly comfort and support. And with him and God, I can overcome my kryptonite. The 3 of us are a team. I may not be a true superhero, but with God and my hubby beside me I know I can do anything I am called to do.

Life is scary sometimes and we aren't superheros with superpowers. But we have a Father who has all the power. And in my case I have a partner who is my reason for living, for facing each day head on. That is a mighty and powerful thing. I will take it over superpowers any day.



I am definitely with the right one!

  1. I ADORE that sign! The message is true. I must say that stress and worry are some of my biggest drains. I try hard to deal, but sometimes I take things too much to heart. God has blessed me twice with hubby's that do for me the same as yours does for you. I love the you guys work together on your marriage as so many today think they are disposble.

    1. Thank you Winnie. We are working things out. If anyone ever says marriage gets easier after 20 years, I am here to say they are WRONG. Marriage is work. Of course anything worth having takes effort, and my marriage is worth the effort!:)

  3. Tamara, I'm am in complete agreement with you. Self doubt is my stumbling block. Sure, I mostly project confidence and composure, but often I'm just a babbling, scared child inside. Thanks for voicing your story, I am glad that I'm not alone!

    1. It does help, knowing that others share our insecurities. Not that we would wish these feelings on anyone, but it is nice to be reminded that it is all part of the human experience. :)
