Lazaroo – Wednesday, June 3, 2009

Jun 03, 2009 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with utter abandon:

“Everyone whose heart God had moved – prepared to go.”
(Ezra 1:5)

You’ve moved my heart, Jesus.

And not just once.

You’ve moved my heart again and again – more times than I can count.

But I haven’t always responded.

Sometimes I’ve thought about what You wanted me to do…weighed what it might cost me…and put it off.

I fully intended to obey You.

I told myself I would get around to it.  I even took a few beginning steps in the right direction.

But once I had put it off, it was easier not to do it at all.

So I didn’t.

Ever.

Sometimes I still think about it….but my heart no longer moves me.

You’ve moved on.

Oh God.

Don’t leave me with a dead heart!

Please.

Move my heart once again.

And this time…

…I won’t put it off.

    But God, if You’re here (and why would I be talking to You if You weren’t), why should I want to go THERE?

    One would think we’d eventually learn…

    It is unfortunate how time and circumstances can deteriorate relationships – even the the most important relationship in our lives. It is true that if it isn’t growing, it is dying. Lord, please infuse Your life into OUR relationship and help me take care of it.
