The trapeze artist makes a decision to let go before she experiences the reassurance of the “catch.” At just the right time, she commits to the flight. There is no turning back then. Free-flying follows…until the catch is made.
Before we can take hold of God’s hopes and dreams for us, we must let go of our comforts, securities and aspirations. We have to let go, flying through the air, trusting that God is there to make the catch. This is what faith is about.
Prayer Thought: Ask God to identify what you are clutching that prevents you letting go. Then ask God for the courage to let go and fly.
