Did you see it? A week ago today, Nik Wallenda made history walking two tightropes, one with a world-record setting incline, the other blindfolded, both without a safety-net or tether, between skyscrapers in Chicago.
The stunt showed live on Discovery Channel Sunday night, being beamed abroad to more than 200 countries. The exploit was, in a word, mesmerizing…almost miraculous.
Many Wallenda fans, and even the casual viewer, readily appreciate the strength, focus, and mental fortitude that Wallenda must hone in order to complete such a feat. Wallenda credits his ability to perform such stunts to prayer and faith, to stepping out on the tightrope and with his eyes focused not only on the wire below him, but his God above.
To help him focus, he usually rallies right before the exploit with his favorite pastor - Joel Osteen.
