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.’”
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:
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!
