Go For It!

109. Go For It!

I preached a sermon once and used the story of the man who is going to walk a tightrope across Niagara Falls pushing a wheelbarrow. A crowd has gathered to watch and the man stands at the edge and asks the crowd, “What do you think—can I do it?” The crowd shouts “Yes!” The man hears one person’s answer above the others—he hears another man’s voice who clearly shouts “Yes, You can!”

He then talks directly to that person and says, “Do you think so?”

Again the man shouts, “Yes.”

He questions again, “Really? Really, do you think I can do it?”

The man is emphatic, “Absolutely, You can do it!”

The man who is going to cross Niagara Falls says, “Then get in the wheelbarrow!”

That story has always spoken to me. In times when I am hesitant, when I hold back, when I’m being wishy-washy, I hear that voice say, “Get in the wheelbarrow! Show up! Do it! Go!”

And sometimes I go.
