Lazaroo – Sunday, April 28, 2013

Apr 28, 2013 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with burning emotion:

“I will bring a conqueror against you…”
(Micah 1:15)

I never again want to see this side of You, Jesus!

‘cause I’m pretty sure
I already have.

I’ve lost some battles I should have won

except for the fact

that I was more intent on winning the battle
than on pleasing You.

Why do I do that?

Why do I cooperate so fully with You

in the beginning
when my plans are just forming
while I’m still unsure that I actually have a shot

then bail on You when it finally looks like it’s going to happen

giving You a little goodbye wave and a wink –

“Thanks for all Your help, LORD –
but I’ve got this, now!”?

There I am, holding my tiny little corner of the project
totally unaware that You’ve been carrying me all along

until, at my pompous request –

You let go.

What is Lazaroo?
