The engineers hired to build a suspension bridge across the Niagara River faced a serious problem: how to get the first cable from one side of the river to the next. The river was too wide to throw a cable across it, and too swift to cross by boat.
An engineer finally came up with a solution! With a favoring stiff wind, a kite was flown and allowed to drift over the river and land on the opposite shore. Attached to the kite was a very light string, which was threaded through the kite’s tip so that both ends of the string were in the hands of the kite flyer. Once the kite was in the hand of the engineers on the far side, they removed the kite from its string and set up a ‘pulley’. A small rope was attached to one end of the original kite string and ‘pullied’ across the river. At the end of this string, a piece of rope was attached and pulled across…and so on, until a cable strong enough to sustain the iron cable which supported the bridge could be drawn across the water.
Let your faith go. Release it to God, believing that He can and will help you. When you link your released faith with patience and persistence, you will have what it takes to tackle virtually any problem!
