The Superman Within The Clark...


Many women are searching for a Superman (I honestly wouldn’t mind one right now; it’s so much easier that way)… but no one wants to see that he’s hidden within a Clark Kent… I saw this quote by Bishop Jakes on Facebook while I was writing this. He said “Many people are struggling because they have not used what God has given them. God gives you an acorn; you invest it and it will become a tree! Stop praying for trees while acorns are lying all over the ground.”
Unveil the Superman within your Clark Kent.

Sometimes what you’re looking for doesn’t come in the form of what your mind pictures it to be, it’s so different, right under your nose, but you miss it, because you want to see the big S on the chest and the red cape, and the red pant over the blue tights(I still don't get why he would wear his pants outside.)

God’s given us so much, but we’re still asking Him for the same thing, when all we have to do is use what He’s put within us. Imagine how frustrated He gets when we keep asking Him for purpose, and He goes “but I’ve put this talent in your hands, all you have to do is use it, invest your time in digging for the treasure within you and you’ll find purpose when you’re serving the world around you with the treasure I’ve put in you”.

Want a superman? Dig into the Clark Kent in front of you. Looking for purpose? Polish the treasure within you. God’s given you so much. Stop whining and start planting your acorn.
