Today's prompt: Bare
There are days when these dreams of ours will lay our hearts bare for the world. When the baby-steps we're taking turn into "Look at Me" magnifying glasses for our biggest fans and biggest critics and we fight to remember that we do it to please God.
When that next step happens, when our toes inch closer to the finish line of a goal we never even knew we wanted to start, there is an unveiling. Our hearts stop being so hard and start to feel renewed with soft, tender skin. Beautiful and new but oh so easy to damage.
It's the scary part. Doing it anyway when you've felt hurt before. Knowing what could happen amid so many unknowns. Trying not to focus on pleasing all of those around us and instead stopping for a moment to feel the soft whisper of our Father saying "well done."
Because in the end? If these God Sized Dreams of mine to write, encourage, worship....if they turn into anything? I want them to be laid bare before the throne of the King and know that they are honoring to Him, even if they aren't what the world wants or needs.
