To Be Who We Are Created To Be

Dr Alex Tang

Father God, I stand before you now high above a sleeping city.

The movie poster for Spider-man 2 shows the back of Spider-man, facing a bright and sleepy New York. He is in full costume except that he is holding his mask.

For Peter Parker/Spider-man this night he has to make a decision. It is a cross road, decision making point. One option is for him to hide his superpowers, pretend to be an ordinary man, marry Mary Jane Watson and have a good life. The world will not have the benefit of his superpowers. The other option is for him to continue to be Spider-man. To do that, he has to keep a secret identity and live a double life. There will be no room for relationship, marriage and family in that night. How is one to chose? For the greater good of all man, but having to live a secretive life. Or to bland into the crowd and be invisible. And go home to wife and family in the evening.

Father God, I stand before you now, hovering above my notebook. I too have a decision to make. I am also at a cross road, decision making point. The decision involves a church leadership position. To accept or not to accept. Like Spiderman, I have climbed to a high place to meditative, think and pray. A place of solitude to find my heart’s true center.

Father God, you know my heart, my desires and my loyalties. You have give me much; wealth, talents, good wife, family, children and friends. I want to love you and be in your presence forever.

I want to serve you, Lord; I want to be your servant. But, Lord, which type of servant do you want me to be? You have equipped me and given me powers. You know what type of ministry I am equipped for. In this high place, Lord, please give me your understanding; enlighten me to what role I shall play next.

Teach me, O Lord, to make a decision.

Lord, have mercy
