This is a new "climbing tower" with two walls to climb and a 'zip line' that goes several hundred feet - from the top of the tower. The tower is located approximately 50 yards from Papa's front yard. Mama is excited about riding the zip line one day.
On Monday probably over a hundred people rode the zip line and several more climbed the walls. Each person was in a safety harness that took part. Staff are trained to ensure that each person is participating safely.
I watched as a young boy, maybe 7 or 8, began his climb up the staircase inside the tower. He was already in the harness and had to climb the tower by himself. Several family members and many onlookers shouted encouraging words as he began his climb. Once he got to the top of the tower, everyone cheered! Then a man at the top of the tower snapped him into the zip line - gave him a few words of instruction, and then asked him to step off the edge - oh my! I could see apprehension on his face - but he trusted the man at the top of the tower and he could hear the voices of encouragement below. Soooo - he stepped off and had a ride of a lifetime! When he stopped and unhooked from the zip line, his face was beaming.
How are you doing with the tough climbs you are facing? Don't you hear the voices of encouragement? Are you trusting the Masters voice when He speaks and asks you to take a step into the unknown. If you don't obey, you may miss that ride of a lifetime He has for you.
