Lazaroo – Monday, May 7, 2012

May 07, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with every fiber of your being:

“…he must be…one…who is disciplined…”
(Titus 1:7-8)

I am disciplined, Jesus!

…in some things.

But not in everything.

So I guess there are two dangers with that, aren’t there?

I might see where I’m strong
conclude that I’m a very disciplined person

and totally ignore where I’m weak.

It’s a little hard for me to keep growing
when I’m blind to the areas I need to improve.

Or…

I might be so devastated by my weaknesses
that I conclude I’m a totally undisciplined person

and think there’s no point in trying.

It’s hard to become everything You’ve created me to be

when I’m so sure I’ll fail
that I think it’s not worth the effort.

Please open my blind eyes

to see the gaps that need to be filled.

But don’t allow me to discount

the beautiful work You’ve already begun in my life.
