Strands of Trust

Strands of Trust

Trust
stretched and stretched
until it snaps
leaving dangling ends
broken and useless

Trust
fragile at best
a thin thread
unable to stretch
anticipating failure

Trust
a fishing line
stronger now
hoping just a little
for something better

Trust
a retractable cable
able to withstand
jolts and loads
able to extend, or not

I was glad to find you back and posting. I have been coming back regularily to watch for you.

Trust is cumulative. And Trust is harder to repair each time it is broken.Eventually, outside of the healing touch of Christ'a hand, it becomes forever snapped.

Your poem was very moving
Thank You

Thank you for leaving a comment girlinaglasshouse.

I am touched that you have been coming back regularly to see when I would return to posting. I had to take a break due to health issues. It feels good to be back to posting. Hopefully I will be back to frequent posting soon.

I love what you had to say about trust. Christ Jesus can heal trust in ways that I find incomprehensible, but oh so real. It is absolutely amazing to me that he has allowed me to trust again.

God bless you with peace and joy today.
