A god work in you

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                    I am confident of this,          that the one who began a god work in you          will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ.                   —Philippians 1.6

Yes, that's a typo. I do that a lot. It's supposed to be a “good work.” But this time I'll leave it. That is my prayer.

                  •

You give me no punishment, no requirement, no burden, only you. Repentance is not my work but yours: you are a child growing within me.

I surrender myself to your deep delight. I make of my rough heart an open manger.

Come to wholeness in me, that I may become what you already cherish.

Come, be born in me. Come, give birth to me, Holy Child, my Lord, my Mother, my life.
