After months of waiting for the release of Wonder Woman 1984, I was excited to finally get to watch the long-awaited sequel to the 2017 Wonder Woman film. While I found the plot a little messy, what I did not expect was to find certain themes that related to the gospel in the movie.

Whether we grew up in a Christian home or came to accept the beliefs of the Christian faith later in life, at some point we’ve probably wondered whether what we’ve been taught is indeed true.
“Do you trust me to provide for all your needs?” I heard God ask.
Through tears, I was staring at a piece of paper with the words “REQUEST FOR CANCELLATION OF APPLICATION BEFORE BOOKING FLAT”.
Yes, I trusted that God would take care of me, but having to physically pick up a pen and sign on the form in that very moment was the hardest thing I ever had to do.
This Christmas was supposed to have been different for my family. I should have entered the last trimester of a pregnancy that had taken my husband and I by absolute surprise and awe. Our daughter should have seen in my growing belly proof that her prayers for a sibling had been heard.
Instead, I found myself in pain.
Whether you’re living through a Covid-19 free Christmas, or in the middle of it, we can all agree that the most wonderful time of the year certainly doesn’t feel like one this year.
A few years ago, I was introduced to another kind of comparison, one that wasn’t the least beneficial. I had graduated but my career had yet to take off. I was far from achieving the accomplishments I’d set for myself. As I grew increasingly frustrated at the uncertainty of my future, I started to compare my situation to peers who seemingly had it all together. When was God going to answer my prayers for a job and alleviate my disappointment in myself?
It feels safe to say that 2020 has been a challenging year for most. For me, it is a year where nothing seems to have happened and where everything has happened.
After another night with only a few hours of sleep, I am in front of my computer preparing for my day. I am in the basement. It’s dark and cold. I feel tired.
Doubting is normal.
Uncomfortable as it can be, wondering whether we really have “got it right” is as human as it is inevitable, especially when we’re swimming each day in a sea of different beliefs.
