Faith on a limb

I heard a joke yesterday that was told by the pastor of my church. I thought I'd share.

   A mountain climber was doing his regular thing, climbing some mountain and enjoying it thoroughly. As he took a moment to catch his breath he made the wrong move, lost his footing and fell. As he was falling, he caught hold of a small tree that was growing out the side of the mountain. Dangling there between heaven and earth, he looked up to the sky and cried out, "God, I am your child! I am in danger and need your help!"
   The mountain climber then gazed in amazement when the skies opened up and he heard a booming voice that said, "LET GO." The mountain climber thought about the words that he had heard for a moment before crying out once again, "Is there anyone else up there?"
If only we all had faith to trust and "Let Go".
