No secret I’m a super hero movie freak! I’m also a girl. There aren’t a lot of prominent girl superheros. However, I’ve noticed one thing: whenever the super hero man needs a boost, many times, it’s the kiss of his lady that gives him that confidence to go out and take on the world. This is not a myth.
We as women wield great power. Our power isn’t just that with 10 seconds and a teaspoon of man juice, we can replicate human DNA. Although that is an awesome super power, it’s not the one I’m talking about. I’m talking about the power of love (and not he 80’s power ballad.) Women can give a man confidence. Like magic, when we say something, do something, show our man he is THE MAN, he can go out and accomplish great things because he is going out in confidence.
Inversely, with this great power comes great responsibility. We are responsible for taking that power from him if we choose. Every time we disrespect him, cut him down, refuse to extend our love and assurance – we are abusing that power. Be careful, ladies. It’s a great thing we have an awesome responsibility we wield.
It’s not like our man doesn’t have power on his own. It’s not like we don’t either. But together, we are a complete superhero!

So very true. Thanks for saying it as it is not often heard!
This is encouraging to hear. Especially for someone such as myself who is about to be married this year. It’s true that women wield a great power in supporting their husbands. To cut him down or to build him up. It works both ways in a marriage from what I hear too. If I may borrow a Bible verse to back me up (and I will), it’s called for “wives to respect your husbands” and for “husbands to love your wives”. It’s pretty clear what we’re called to do in a marriage. From a Biblical standpoint, that is. Definitely going out on a limb to share a little bit of that on this thread but it felt like it fit! Thanks for sharing.
