Elijah - Superhero or just like us - Be sure to find God when you are burnt out

Dave Hannah 

Who is you favourite movie superhero? Batman? Wolverine? And if you could have one superhero power what would it be? X-ray vision – so you could scratch off the winning card maybe?

Do you ever see any of those famous bible characters as a kind of superhero? Because if you do, they become untouchable and out of reach. Elijah raised the dead, called down fire from heaven and bought a nation to its knees with one prayer – yet James, the brother of Jesus, described him as completely human as we are.

After the rush of an amazing victory, our hero Elijah goes from the mountain top of success to the deepest valley of despair. Ring any bells? Ever felt the sting of such an unexplainable emotional crash? Ever feel the weight of the world on your shoulders is getting too heavy to carry?
This was Elijah, our erstwhile superhero: Enough of this, God! Take my life – I’m ready to join my ancestors in the grave!

Is there ever a way back from the lows of depression and burn out?
