Lazaroo – Thursday, April 16, 2009

Apr 16, 2009 I Lazaroo.


“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.”
(Jeremiah 1:5)

With this stark statement You declare Your ownership of me.

How can I dispute that, LORD? 

You made me. 

You’re my Designer, my Artist, my Inventor, my Poet, my Creator, my Manufacturer, my Musician, my Author, my Composer, my Master.

I’m Your design, Your artwork, Your invention, Your poetry, Your creation, Your product, Your instrument, Your book, Your symphony, Your servant.

Which means…

If You knew me before You made me…that means You knew exactly what You were getting.  You knew who I would be…how I would think…where I would go…what I would do…

…and knowing all that You made me anyway.

O Jesus!

That means You want me.

I’m not here by accident. 

I’m here by choice:

Yours.

    WOW!! This is one of my favorites. I love it when I know beyond a shadow of doubt that someone loves me, and, this is not just someone, it is Someone. The fact that He knows everything that I have tried to hide from others and still loves me even more than the others is beyond any words that I know. Further, the fact that He chose a husband for me that loves me unconditionally is a miracle in itself. Thank you for helping me dig out the thoughts that may otherwise be buried.

    I love that this was the chosen verse for yesterday. I was going through a hard decision and needed a very clear reminder that God was in control, that He had everything planned for me. He brought Jeremiah 29:11-14 to my mind and that was great scripture to read while trying to determine His will for my life. I believe those go hand in hand. God revealed such precious things about His character to Jeremiah and I yearn to know more about His character. For now, I trust that He is in control.

    This must be smile day, Jeff. Here’s one more knucklehead unable to suppress his own sheepish smile…which is becoming a big grin: Oh Jesus! You love me!

  4. Steve Says:

    And Mindy, your exuberant, enthusiastic joy over God’s love for you made ME smile. I’ll bet Jesus is smiling, too.

  5. Mindy Says:

    Today’s Lazaroo definitely brings on a huge smile.

    Lord, You are soooooooooooooo awesome !
    You knew me.
    You made me.
    You just love me, for me 🙂 🙂
    As for me, I want to be more like You !

  6. Jeff Says:

    Lord, thank you for loving me unconditionally and modeling that kind of love for me so I can strive to love others that way. Thanks for knowing in advance what kind of knucklehead I am going to be, and while suppressing a sheepish smile, You love me all the more.

  7. Ken Ferry Says:

    And how humbling to think, as I start my day, that my greatest act of worship is to emulate His creative genius in the things I choose to do and not to do today. Lord, help me to be a clear mirror reflecting your pure light.

    Wow! What a wonderful thought to start the day off with, thank you Jesus for creating me!
