Now I have just shared with you my past feelings and thoughts of this person and you may be wondering, "Well, then what is the problem? What is the reality check?" For me, I think what was hitting me was that after that time, we didn't have a lot of communication between us since I had gone to school and he had work back at home, yet he still invited me to his wedding. Here I was going to one of my mentor's wedding and was able to see the blessing from God that we had prayed about different times in his car after band practice. I got to see and be a part of this special blessing in his life. I got to see a major transition happen in his life and have promised to be there for him through this major transition. It was really touching that he was willing to allow me to be a part of that change in his life. Me, one of his small group boys!
During the reception, I was able to hangout and party with one of my small group boys from back in the day when I was a Junior High Youth Worker at HMC. Here he was working as the videographer at the wedding and was a close friend of the groom as well. As I was there having fun with my little bro from small group, it came as a reality shock to me. I have a similar connection with this young man as I have with the groom. My small group boy could talk to me about anything and we would try and catch up as much as we could. We were interested in each other's lives and were willing to be there for each other. In eight months, we would be in a similar situation as I was in with the groom at the wedding.
It is amazing to realize that we can impact people in so many ways that we may not realize the full impact until we have experienced it ourselves. All of us have impacted people in such a way that we have people who look up to us, but yet we may just think they are hanging out with us because we are the leaders. There are some that are following you and will follow you in their hearts because you have done something for them or have impacted them in a way you didn't realize. Your actions, your words, your leadership, is all an example for others to be guided by. We are all leaders in action. We are all grand speakers in someone's life. We are all a huge impact to someone.
You are an impact in someone's life.

I, being the nerd that I am, have a really weird liking of superheroes. I find them quite appealing, even something to strive to understand more of. This is not an obsession, but trying to find out what it really means to be a hero.
Personally, I can't really say that I completely understand what the definition of a hero is. I wonder at times if even our society can even really define it for us. My concept of a hero is someone who stands out for the greater good of all people. That they are able to make some form of nobel cause for everyone to look up to and to get hope from. Someone who is able to look at impossible odds and say that there is a chance, who is willing to do anything to make that chance into a reality. Someone who is sought after for their strength and is looked up to when there are times of utter chaos.
As I look at these list of traits for a superhero I wonder, am I matching what I wish to strive in my own life. I am not trying to be down, but at times wonder where have I gone in my fight to save the world? I know who is the leading lady that I am going off to save, but I question something, am I strong enough to save here? A hero can look like he is amazing with the suit on in front of others, but is his strength able to fight for and protect the one he loves?
I guess that is where the super powers come in right. However, what is my superpower. I wonder, is it something that I must for master myself, or something that I have to discover on my own? Quite frankly, I don’t think it is something that I can find on my own or build on myself. I personally believe that my superpower is God. Though I don’t feel like I am strong enough at times to save my leading lady, God is there giving me strength. However this is not the only thing, since I am at times the one who is need of rescuing, my leading lady is actually a superheroine, that saves me with the same superpower. It is through our superpower that we have a purpose in helping the world, in saving one another. We do not need to do it alone or have to struggle with it by ourselves, if we depend on our superpower.
