Lazaroo – Monday, June 21, 2010

Jun 21, 2010 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with renewed hope:

“We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure.”
(2 Corinthians 1:8)

Been there, Jesus.

Oh, have I ever.

I’m no wimp.

I do my best to handle each challenge as it comes up.

But it’s when one crisis starts piling up on top of another

that I can feel the beginnings of panic start to rise up within me.

My heart pounds
my temper shortens
my breathing changes.

All it takes is one more thing –
even a tiny problem I could normally handle without batting an eyelash

and I go tilt.

When I catch that happening to me, I am so ashamed.

You’re the one who’s called me to step out of the boat

and walk on this choppy water.

It’s when I focus on the waves that I start to sink

until I fix my gaze

back on You.

    A lump of coal or a diamond; both are made of the same stuff. I’m told the only difference is heat and pressure.

  2. Lady B. Says:

    The word of God says, ” Keep your roots deep in Christ and have your lives built on Him. Be strong in the faith, just as you were taught and always be thankful.” Col. 2:7 We as believers must stay hook up to the Power Source. We can never afford to be without our weapons of Prayer and wearing God’s Armour daily. Satan is not playing he wants to destory as many as he can. There are indeed no surprises. My Prayer for The Body of Christ today is this: Precious Redeemer, help us to realize that our freedom is already won in Your Name. Breathe into our souls this day, the power of Your love and the power of Your Holy Spirit. We bless You, we bless You, we bless You. Amen.
