Super Heroes are everywhere, just look around.
Have you ever really thought about what makes us do good? I am a firm believer that we are all born equal and are all Good people. Then comes life. Life experiences, geography, peers, family, are all things that mold the person you become. But the core is good. Everyone still has that inside of them. Some find it earlier than others and some tend to pack it away in the back somewhere until something else pushes it out.
Lets take a look at numbers….In almost any profession you work from them. Just think about it….Statistically speaking if the majority of the people like a certain item, then it will sell. If the majority of people feel someone is guilty in a jury trial, then the defendant is found guilty. I feel the same goes for living for God and trying to do the right things. If you try your hardest to do right, the most you can… then opportunities will open for you.
Have you ever noticed that bad people usually avoid being around good people? They don’t like us because they feel like we are judging them. When truthfully we are not even thinking anything about them. We just live to help others, and deep inside would love to help anyone!
It doesn’t take a cape or a mask to be a superhero, but it does take wanting to do the right things and help people with nothing in reward. I challenge you to do the right things and to help fight evil in what ever capacity that you can.
Challenge yourself with this task and see what happens… Look at the people You come into contact with throughout your daily activities and see how they are radiating good. A smile at a drive thru window. A thank you for holding a door. A nod of a head when walking by a stranger. A tip of the hat to a fellow hat wearer, a wave to another motorcycle rider. What good can you produce today? Live your life to the fullest and remember good will prevail! The more good, the less space evil has.
Join in my quest to rename superhero to everydayhero. Because that is what every single one of us can and desire to be. Somewhere in that scar ridden heart is good. Harness it, embrace it and lets tell evil his days are numbered.
God Bless us all friends…..Blacks out!

What a great day for a walk…or is it. With the temperatures soaring up over the hundred mark, I wanted to get out early and take my little angel for a walk. Not only for some exercise, and to get her outside for a minute, but to also give my loving wife a break, who does twice more than other mothers I know). This decision to go for a walk was a good one, because it inspired me to make this entry into my blog.
Grabbing the stroller and buckling my little bit in, I can see the excitement in her face! She knows she is going on a stroll, because we try to take her on strolls as much as we can. I push her to the front glass door as she pears out looking into the great outdoor abyss and what wonders what her stroll will bring her today!
As I lift her down the two front stairs and start down the driveway…vroom vroom, a big truck passes by as her hand raises and points to it driving up the street. She looks at me and back at the truck, so excitedly it makes me smile. Making our way down the sidewalk, a loud boom comes from construction workers down the road, she immediately throws her hand up as to wave at the worker, he smiles and of course waves back. I giggle inside thinking of the joke i read once that says, when a two year old hands you a play phone…you answer it! He couldnt resist the little wave either. I nod my head at him, acknowledging he had done the right thing, and i appreciated his child like wave. We are now to the walking trail and her sights are aimed high, she is looking back and forth at the bushes, and the trees blowing in the wind, when she catches a glimpse of a wasp flying near, she reaches out to grab the cute, tiny flying bird ( in her eyes) as it flies away. We continue walking when that hand comes up and points again. What do you see I say in a childish voice that I later hoped no one was close enough to hear me. She points again. She has found a flock of geese standing to the side of the trail. As they hiss at her and start to come towards her wings opened wide, she cackles and laughs, so funny those fowl are!
We continue our walk with the geese in the background and she hears loud music coming from a passing car. Rap music that said a few explicit words (just music to her) and she clapped. Clapping led to our patty cake song, as we continued back to the house. She went back and forth looking at everything as if she had never seen it before, as I watched for oncoming traffic before crossing the road.
I bring her into the cool house as it was getting warmer outside and she looks up at me with her two little round eyes and without saying anything, I know she was thinking. Thanks Daddy:-)
I joked with my wife about the wasp and the geese and thought to myself about the beauties of life and how God watches over us even when we don’t realize it just as I had watched over my child on our morning stroll. Isnt that a good feeling? God watches over us.
Did she know the danger of the big speeding truck? The pain of a wasp sting, or even the fear of a goose protecting its young with a loud hiss and wing spread. The answer is simple. No. she didn’t because she didn’t have to. Big daddy was pushing her and making sure no bad things happened to her. I saw the wasp before it got close, I knew the geese would do that before I even strolled by them, and the truck and traffic was obvious, I was watching that without even thinking about it.
This reminded me of how God watches over us and delivers us from evil, even when we don’t realize it. How easy is it to blame God or ask God why, when something bad happens to us? It’s very easy! At those times we need to remind ourselves to be humble and thankful for all the evil we was protected from and didn’t even know it.
2 Thessalonians 3:3 but God is faithful, he will strengthen you and protect you from evil.
pray for strength in your faith for God, live every day to its fullest and remember he is always there.
The beauty about God is that you never know when he will put something on your heart that may help others. Last Sunday I was motivated to give a weekly devotion to God under Matt Blacks Sunday chronicles. When I did my post last Sunday, it was natural and felt good and I had all kinds of ideas and thoughts in my head about what to talk about. This Sunday I couldn’t figure out why I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to blog about, so I didn’t. I now know that it didn’t come to my heart about what to talk about until today when God gave me a friend who thought he was calling me for help with his problem, but in reality he was helping me.
We began talking about the pure evil in the world and how can some people be so cruel. Not only how can they be that bad, but how can we help ourselves with the thoughts and nightmares that may come with the introduction of this evil. I told him that prayer and faith in God to help him through the hard times is the only true answer, but it is not that easy sometimes. Sometimes you really have to buckle down and stay strong and know that not only do we live for God but we work for God also. God is the ultimate boss and he knows these times when it is tough because he knows us, and what we will go though before we even know it’s happening. As I browsed through bible versus about strength and being strong when you feel weak, I found the famous armor of God verse. And thought to myself, the answer is easy try to put on your armor of God, not just when you think you will need it, but how about putting it on every day to be ready for the tough times you may face. Be prepared, pray harder when things are going well and remind yourself that the devil is always around and he will try to sneak upon you. Be prepared for that, because you know it is coming.
I wish I would have told you this before I let you go off the phone, but I will say it now. Every morning I will put one leg in my pants at a time, and remember to put on my Godly armor as well because we never know what monsters we will face today. Remember those monsters are just Satans minions trying to get to you, and make you weak. Don’t let it!
Funny thing about about typing the word Satans is that auto correct wanted to change it to satin, how sweet is that. Satan is not even tough enough to be his own correct spelled word.
Satan is a chump, and I am not afraid to say it, because you know what I am wearing…do you have yours on? Put it on daily with prayer and we will fight together my friend…..God bless…
