Lazaroo – Friday, April 13, 2012

Apr 13, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in sober gratitude:

 “Then they prayed, ‘Lord, you know everyone’s heart. Show us which of these two you have chosen to take over this apostolic ministry, which Judas left to go where he belongs.’”
(Acts 1:24-25)

It’s a good thing that You know everyone’s heart, Jesus.
There are a lot of people who aren’t exactly

               wysiwyg
(whatyouseeiswhatyouget).

When I’m impressed with someone’s achievements

meet someone extremely likable
fall in love

it’s hard to surrender my first impression to You

trust You to help me know
whether this is a relationship I should pursue.

But I fail to do so at my own peril.

I’m so glad You know everyone’s heart, LORD…

including mine.

You alone see my good intentions

when the only thing others can see is my failures.

Of course, that sword cuts both ways, doesn’t it?

When everyone else thinks I’m living right

You alone know the truth.
