Lazaroo – Sunday, August 19, 2012

Aug 19, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud all the way to the marrow of your bones:

“‘The Lord has done this for me,’ she said. ‘In these days he has shown his favor and taken away my disgrace among the people.’”
(Luke 1:25)

Few things are sweeter, Jesus –

than to look back at a wonderful thing that has just happened
and have it suddenly dawn on me…

it was You!

especially when the favor You showed me

was a long time coming

when I had prayed and prayed and prayed without discernible effect

and had pretty much concluded Your answer was:

“No.”

Only afterwards was I able to understand that it was all about Your perfect timing

not one day early
not one day late

that if You had given me what I wanted in the beginning

it wouldn’t have worked.

You know the prayers I’m still praying, Father.

What a day it will be
when I suddenly recognize

You did it again!

    My fault, Paul. Posting it now! I’m thrilled that you count on your Lazaroo each day. Normally, I move heaven and earth to get it posted at one midnight after midnight. Today…I didn’t make it. Whenever that happens – and I hope and pray it’s exceedingly seldom – you’ll know to pray for me and the unexpected challenges that I suddenly confronted in my schedule! May God richly bless you in this daily adventure, my brother.

    Pastor Steve, thanks once again for todays message. When Bill passed away I had to downsize my living space and I looked all month but nothing was right but I had to put legs on my prayers anyway. I knew He had just the right place for me. The last Sat of the month my Son and his wife came over and said, Mom we are going to find you a place today. We looked at more places and the very last one we went to, It was just right. I just knew it. And
    I always tell everyone how that the Lord is never too early or late, he is always on time. When I remember all of the on-time blessings He has given me I am filled with with His Holy Spirit once again.God Bless You Steve.
