Hidden gift

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

                  —Philippians 1.6

God has begun a miraculous thing in you.
Beneath the matted tangles of your unbelief,
within the brittle shell of Impossibility,
in the dark deep within you,
there it is,
a star in the velvet silence,
a seed in the hard earth,
a child in the virgin’s womb.

Give up trying to guess what’s in the package.
Let go of wanting to see it first before you accept it.
Stop pretending you’re unworthy.
It’s God’s delight to give you this gift.

Meditate on the mystery
of the secretly growing blessing within you.

Like Mary, simply say,
“May it be for me according to your Word.”

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
