Lazaroo – Monday, July 25, 2011

Jul 25, 2011 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with soul-piercing reflection:

“The battle that day was very fierce, and Abner and the men of Israel were defeated by David’s men.”
(2 Samuel 2:17)

I guess there have to be winners and losers, Jesus –

at least on this earth.

I trust You in that
even though I’m weary of it.

The pressure to win is so great!

So is the penalty for losing.

What if I don’t want to play that game today?

Can I sit this one out?

What if I don’t want to play that game anymore?

Can I quit altogether?

And if I do…

does that mean I’m exempt from the consequences?

Or would my withdrawal just classify me as another kind of loser –

a quitter?

Could I live with that?

As far as the opinions of others are concerned
I think I could.

But any battle in which You’ve entered me

I’ve got to win.
