If I Could Have One Super Power

If I could have one super power, could you guess what it would be?

It would be to learn another language in the blink of an eye.

 I can't complain much, I'm learning a language that is actually quite simple but my brain just cannot wrap around it as quickly as I want it to. Words are starting to form sentences in my head, yet when I open my mouth I just stutter and stumble with pauses while occasionally hiding my face in my hands. Oh and that whole pride thing, gets in the way. I'm still so prideful when it comes to language learning, but my pride is slowly being chipped away. I ask myself, "What am I so scared of?" The worse thing that could happen is I get laughed at, but that rarely happens. Most of the time people try to help with my cave man spanish and I'm so grateful for their grace. 

One day, it will all connect and I so look forward to that day. It will be a day of rejoicing! I literally DREAM of the day. As soon as spanish starts connecting, I'll have to start over at square one by learning Portuguese and I'm sure you can throw in some Indigenous languages too. Like I said, couldn't I just have the superpower of instantly learning languages? 
Thankfully, I serve a mighty God and He hasn't left me alone to learn these languages. I continue to pray for strength and supernatural ability to learn this language as I will use it to serve him. 

And while language fails me, I am so thankful that love translates.

If you could have one super power, what would it be?

Have you ever learned a new language, what helped you learn and get through the awkward, frustrating learning stages?

  1. Ahhh language learning. There are few things as frustrating when the words and sentences aren't connecting, but there are few things as completely exhilarating as the times when they ARE. It's such an usual 'high'. Keep working hard and trying trying trying and it will come very soon!

    aaaand if I could have a superpower, it would be the power to heal, I think.
