Drawn out

God reaches into the dark
         and through the chaos pulls out light.

God reaches into the pit
         and through the walls of fate pulls out Joseph.

God reaches into the slave colonies of Egypt
         and through the sea pulls out a people.

God reaches into the dank despair of the tomb
         and through the pain and loss pulls out Jesus.

God reaches into the soil…
         into the broken heart…
                  into the wound…

Like a magician God draws out
         what we didn’t know could possibly be there,
                  through the struggle draws out new life.

This tugging at you, this pull you feel—
         listen to the midwife’s gentle voice.
