It Starts with You

I still don't know why some people do the things they do, but one guy wanted to walk on a tightrope over Niagara Falls while pushing someone in a wheelbarrow.

Apparently it is a true story.

Yes, a man actually had the crazy idea that he wanted to walk on a tightrope across Niagara Falls while pushing a wheelbarrow with a man in it. Apparently, he put together a detailed, rigorous practice plan in his backyard.

I can only imagine what the neighbors thought.
"Hey, what are you working on?"
"Um...." Crickets....

He practiced daily, starting by holding a bar to balance himself, and eventually dropping the bar altogether. After many difficult weeks of hard work, they say he actually became very good at it!

At last the day had arrived. Nerves were high from all who knew about it for this hazardous undertaking. Neighbors, friends, and even some from the press assembled to watch.

Looking nervously from the high height across the rushing water below, he said to an admiring friend, “Do you believe I can do it?”

“I absolutely believe you can.”

The performer looked out over the falls one more time and asked him “Do you really believe?”

“I really believe you can.”

He paused.

“Great. Get in the wheelbarrow.


Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1

What would God do with you today if you trusted Him enough to jump in His wheelbarrow?

See you Sunday.
