The fly bar

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.

I am a musician, an engineer, a mentor; my desire is to leave things better than I found them; I am a sister, daughter, wife, mother, aunt, friend. Suicide breaks my heart; Cancer breaks my heart; Human trafficking breaks my heart; Seeing people make bad life decisions breaks my heart. I am thankful for the One True and Living God who saved me from myself and, through His Son Jesus Christ, has saved from my sins; I am confidently persistent, passionately determined and boldly creative so that I may inspire others to live a life that ultimately matters.
