I could lie here and do nothing my whole life and… draft no. 2

Today I am going to trust God enough

that I rest.

I don’t need to do anything.

I could do nothing for the rest of my life

and God would still love me.

I don’t know why

it is so hard to believe that,

when God himself became

a little baby

helpless in his mother’s arms

for us.

I don’t know why,

if I see him in my mind’s eye

lying there in a manger

and believe,

why I can’t as well believe

I could be a helpless

do-nothing child

and know his love.

Maybe that is why he had to show me,

because I don’t even know how to see
