When I was little, I wished, probably like most children, that I could fly.
Around the upper elementary school time of my life, that changed into a longing to be visible; someone please just notice me.
There was yet another change on it’s way, around late junior high, and high school.
One that I did not see coming at all.
As I grew older, I became visible, but not in the way I wanted or needed to.
I became visible mostly to those who would use seeing me to their own advantage, not caring about the detriment to me.
People I knew, people I didn’t know, family members.
Suffice to say, the only superpower I really wanted then, was In-visiblity.
After meeting Jesus, and my husband, and having kids of my own, blessedly, the need for invisibility went away.
Just yesterday I listened to a story on a podcast.
The story is of an ordinary couple that experiences an extraordinary event during a walk in the park.
The title was “Jump!” written by Cadwell Turnbull, read by LaVar Burton, on LaVar Burton Reads.
It put me in mind of another Super Power.
My husband and I have talked about what it would be like to be able to teleport.
Recently we went to Israel.
What an amazing trip it was.
Since COVID19 struck early this year, we are happy that we went when we did.
We have no regrets.
One thing that we agreed on upon our return, was that the flight was so long, and although all ended well, if we had had the Super Power of TELEPORTATION, it could have been that much better.
When you’re a little older, arms and legs and backs get stiff.
Not so much flex! So.
Given a choice, why not?
Phillip the Evangelist in the Bible did it. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Acts+8%3A26-40&version=ESV
Star Trek did it.
Doctor Who did it. (not just place to place, but time to time!)
They did it in X-Men.
Wouldn’t it be a handy power to have?
You could go wherever you wanted to, at any time, and not suffer the fatigue associated with long travel.
Not to mention, the time savings.
So the next time there’s a line up for super powers; make mine TELEPORTATION.
What super power would you want?
