Lazaroo – Monday, October 17, 2011

Oct 17, 2011 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in total dependence on God:

“Arise, O LORD! Deliver me, O my God!”
(Psalms 3:7)

Sometimes it comes down to this, Jesus…

when I’ve done everything I can
when in spite of my very best efforts

it just isn’t enough.

I’m like the person thrown in jail who’s allowed to make just one call –

so here’s mine:

“Jesus! Help!”

knowing that if You don’t come through
I’m undone.

But there’s one more time when I make that call
only this time, it’s not a call
it’s a scream

because I haven’t done everything I can think of
I haven’t given You my best.

I’m trapped in the dark corner of a solitary confinement cell whose bars are

disobedience
rebellion
laziness
idolatry
addiction
stubbornness
weakness.

It is then that my guttural cry rises
knowing I have not one shred of anything to stand on

but Your mercy:

“Jesus! Help!”
