Lazaroo – Saturday, December 11, 2010

Dec 11, 2010 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with deep discernment:

“‘Her king will go into exile, he and his officials together,’ says the LORD.”
(Amos 1:15)

You know better than anyone, Jesus –

I’ve been there.


Sent away from home.

A wedge driven between me

and people I love…
people who love me.

A stranger in a foreign place

among people I don’t know
who show no interest in knowing me

But exile is not always physical.

Sometimes the place I’ve always called home

becomes foreign.

Sometimes the people I once called my family, my friends

become strangers
people with whom I can no longer communicate
people with whom I no longer have anything meaningful in common.

If it’s persecution because of my faithfulness to You

I’ll wear my exile like a badge of honor.

But if You’re the one who’s banished me

show me my sin
help me clean up my act

and bring me home.
