Walking the Tightrope of Life

Walking the Tightrope of Life

Karl Wallenda was the greatest tightrope artist of all time, the head of great family that thrilled the world. In 1978, crossing a 75′ high wire stretched between two buildings in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Wallenda lost his balance and plunged to his untimely death below.

Shortly after this his wife told the press, "All Karl thought about for about three straight months prior to it was falling. It was the first time he had ever thought about that, and it seemed to me that he put all his energies into not falling rather than walking the tightrope."

Vast numbers of people-perhaps you, too-become so obsessed with the issue of avoiding failure, they fail to succeed. While there are lessons in failure, it is better is to know what is necessary to succeed (God’s definition) and accomplish what He wants of you. And what does our Father in heaven want for His children?

Seeking, finding, and doing His will!

God is far more desirous of allowing the Holy Spirit to guide and enable you than you are in humbly asking Him to take over your life and give you the strength to do what He wants.

Walking the tightrope of life requires focus, courage, and fortitude! It’s not easy but it is possible. Commit your future to Him who is "able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think!" Then take the next step "looking unto Jesus as the author and finisher" of your faith.
