I just finished reading Mark Battersons book Double Blessing.. In one chapter of this book, he talks about the concept of “letting go of the fly bar”. The fly bar is the bar used by trapeze artists, who perform daring acts of gymnastics. In an interview with a trapeze artist, who started performing in the circus at age 7, the artist shared that the hardest part of their work is the mental preparation to “let go of the fly bar”. Until they can overcome their fear of letting go, they can never achieve the stunt. Until they have enough courage to risk the fall, they can never let go to perform.
What is your fly bar? What are you afraid to let go of that is keeping you from being able to perform? What dream are you afraid to chase?
If it’s a God given dream, I challenge you today to let go of the fly bar… He’s got you.
Be blessed today, my friends.
