After Philippians 1:3-11
It comes from without,
a good work, a seed planted
in prepared soil. It will grow
until its time of completion.
That’s how it works. You can’t
force the planting or the growth
or the completion. That’s not
how it happens. It’s all without,
outside, the wind moving across
the fields, the rain finding
the furrow where the seed explodes
and growth happens.
