waiting for that next bar to appear

"It is as if we are all on a trapeze, swinging. Just as we become comfortable on one bar we have to let go, and wait, our feet firmly planted in mid-air, for the other bar to come into our grasp.
We can only let go, wait, and recover, because someone on the ground is shouting encouragement to us: "You can do it." God is the source of that encouragement, but the director is often the means for that encouragement to be heard and heeded."

Just the visual thought I need, Roberta! Yes, in many ways, I am waiting for the other bar. I'm so grateful that God is in charge of being sure the bar is there when I need it......... I can certainly trust Him!
On that thought, I am sure to be able to turn OFF the computer and go get a good night's sleep, trusting God that the bar will indeed appear!

I'll echo the Rambler, and say "THANK YOU for your blog!"

A trapeze person is a perfect example of what true faith is always having to let go of the past and know that there is something waiting for you on the other side.
