Lazaroo – Saturday, September 8, 2012

Sep 08, 2012 I Lazaroo.


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

“…God, who tests our hearts.”
(1 Thessalonians 2:4)

Why do You do that, Jesus?

You already see straight into my heart.
You know exactly what’s there.

Why conduct a test?

Is it for the same reason a wise teacher tests a student –

To show the student how much she’s learned
and how much she doesn’t know?

I need both, don’t I?

It’s so encouraging to see the progress I’ve made since surrendering my life to You.

When You give me a test – and I pass it with flying colors –

I’m in awe of the light years I’ve come.
My gratitude to You knows no bounds.

When You give me a test – and I flunk it –

it’s a wake-up call

a reality check
a much-needed injection of humility 

providing me with all the incentive I need

to stay focused on Job #1:

to become just like You.
