Jun 16, 2009 I Lazaroo.


Lazaroo – Tuesday, June 16, 2009
Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with bottomless trust:
“To God’s elect…who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father.” (1 Peter 1:1-2)
You knew me, Father.
Before my parents conceived me.
Before I drew my first breath.
Before I sinned my first sin.
Before every sin I’ve sinned since.
And still You chose me.
Me!
With all my flaws.
With all my issues.
With all my shortcomings.
In spite of all my failures.
In spite of all my blunders.
In spite of my ugly depravity.
Why?
…knowing me as You do.
There’s just one reason that makes any sense at all, Jesus.
You really
really
reallly
really
Love me.

    Abby, I love your humble transparency. Thank you so much for opening your heart to us.

    Thanks, Abby, for that. The hardest lesson to learn for me is prioritizing my heart to God, who will always be faithful – rather than to other frail humans who must eventually fail me.

  3. Abby Says:

    Last wednesday I struggled with some of these questions, asking God why he would still want my broken and tattered heart. He simply explained, as he did to Isaiah, “Behold I am doing a new thing…”, He had seen my tears and heard my cries. But he has a plan, I just can’t have any control over. The thing is “He heals the brokenhearted and binds their wounds,” and His sending Jesus was just another way to prove his love and want for me in all of my brokeness. But I trust my Creator, who fearfully and wonderfully made me, to do a mighty work with me and renew my heart, molding it into a humble disciples.
