Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, shaking your head in amazement:
“I am the God of your father…”
Yes You are, Jesus.
You were – and are! – the God of my father every day of his life –
from the moment of his conception…
and uncountable eons before.
You were his God
even when he didn’t know You.
It stuns me to realize that part of what You were doing as his God
was preparing the way for me.
You hovered over him…
opened some doors
You made sure he met my mother at the ideal time
made certain I was conceived in the moment
perfect for me.
But You not only guided him…
You also allowed him to make his parenting “mistakes”
knowing what they’d do to me
how they would shape me
give me the grit I need
the experiences I had to have
to make it in this
sometimes brutal world.
