Trusting God

How much do I trust God? Unexpectedly, God showed me a path this morning. It brought tears to my eyes, and I felt very exposed. Sometimes, we tuck away the most precious dreams to protected them from disappointment. But is that the way? I never thought of this before, but tucking away a dream is making sure the dream does not succeed.

I have sacred things.
Lace and flowing white billows
Holy in my heart,
Unshared, protected.
Dreams that on exposure
Tear in my eye.
Held back by fear
So close and precious.
God says: Trust, and let me help you
Bring the dreams into the waking world.
They are strong enough for bruising.
