Today we have superheroes and heroes and everyday heroes.
“Yes,” everyone loves Superman, Batman, and Spiderman. The comic books and theaters made a lot of money on these heroes. We have heroes like firemen who have rushed into burning buildings to save man and his dog. We have soldiers who have put themselves in the line of fire to save their comrades. But we also have everyday heroes. The unsung hero, that goes unnoticed, except by those they save. It can be a friend or a brother or sister, maybe a husband or wife. They quietly touch our lives and hold us up when we need a little help. They are always there in the background as a shadow in our night.
Bette Midler sang a song called “Wind Beneath My Wings” written by Jeff Silbar and Larry Henley that touched so many lives. “It might have appeared to go unnoticed but I’ve got it all here in my heart. I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it, I would be nothing without you. Did you ever know that you’re my hero and everything I would like to be? I can fly higher than an eagle for you are the wind beneath my wings.”
God’s Word tells us this, “There is no greater love than for one to lay down his life for another,” John 15:13.
We can not say “I love”, and then when we see someone who needs our help, even if it is just a kind word, we then walk away. 1 John 3: 18 says this, “My dear children, let’s not just talk about love; let’s practice real love.” People today need love. People today need a true friend. People today need God. Josh Groban sang a song called “You Raise Me Up” written by Brendan Graham and Rolf Loveland.
“When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary. When troubles come and my heart burdened be. Then, I am still and wait here in the silence until You come and sit awhile with me. You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains, You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas, I am strong when I am on your shoulders, You raise me up to more than I can be.”
God will carry us as one who carries a little lamb upon his shoulder. He will hold us when there is no one else. He hears the cries of those who weep in silence and yet we do not call Him a hero, but we can call Him our Father. Today if you need a little wind beneath your wings or maybe your heart is burdened with pain, call on your Heavenly Father and He will carry you on the wings of eagles and bring you to Himself. He will raise you from that storm that’s raging within you, and He will carry you through the fire that burns inside. He will give you a peace, a peace that the world does not know. Call on Him today. Trust Him today. He will see you and hear you, and even send you an angel, a wind beneath your wings.
