Restoration

No one wants to be stilled – not really.
What is precious about an idle thing?
What value do we ascribe to dormancy?
We say, “oh how solid is that weakness,
How sullied and forlorn – how useless!”
And we hold a sense of pity and of pride
Against such transitory states,
(as though we never knew them for ourselves).
No great and broken thing was ever transformed
But by the Gentle Hand of Healing and the
Willingness to be stilled.
Restoration comes not from idle work nor restless busyness.
But by Mercy, Love, Grace and Rest.
Fruitless things to those who never Trust.
