Daily Blog Challenge: Day 21

If you could have one superpower, what would it be and what would you do with it first?

I would choose healing touch. I think of how differently my life would be if I would have been able to heal myself of the chronic pains that began in sixth grade (I can't believe it has been 15 years) and of the athletic asthma. Would I have been more physically active? Would I have been a massage therapist? Would I have been able to do my daughters hair the way she wishes? Would I be in a better mood towards my family? So many questions. 

Who else would I heal? I would probably heal my children when they are hurt. But don't all mommies have that power already? 

Though I said that I would have chosen the power of healing, now thinking about it I wouldn't. God has used my struggles with health and has pulled me closer to Him. If having better health would mean sacrificing the closeness I have with the Lord, from trusting Him to help me with my daily struggles, I wouldn't want it. I know that God knows what He is doing and He deserves all the glory. I know that God is the healer. 

Psalm 103:1-5 

"Praise the Lordmy soul; 
    all my inmost being, praise his holy name. 
Praise the Lordmy soul,
    and forget not all his benefits—
who forgives all your sins 
    and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
    and crowns you with love and compassion, 
who satisfies your desires with good things
    so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s."

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." 

What superpower would you want to have? Why?
