Many years ago I spent a great summer working at a Christian sports camp near Austin, TX. So much fun with the staff and campers on the tennis court, in the pool, on the field … AND … on the ropes course … yep … up in the air!
The ropes course was a series of tasks that required balancing on ropes and moving from through the forest. The course finished with a zip line that stretched 150 yards back into camp. That was the fun part … zipping along above the camp …
The hard part was that I had to climb a telephone pole, stand on the platform, and then step off …
It was 10,000 ft … well, at least 30′ … up! I gotta tell you, I was absolutely white–knuckling it … in fact, I remember my knees shaking.
Ultimately, I had to let go of my fear and take that step of faith … finally, after a few minutes I did it … and you know what? I lived … the harness and ropes held me and that zip line was a great reward for my decision to jump through my fear … and literally let go of the platform I was standing on.
What platform are you standing on that is enabling you to hold on to your fear and white–knuckle it? What is going on that you are having to hang on by your fingernails? Are you ready to let go of it and move on to the rewards … just like the fun of the zip line?
