Lazaroo – Sunday, February 13, 2011

Feb 13, 2011 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in stunned awareness:

“She will chase after her lovers but not catch them; she will look for them but not find them.”
(Hosea 2:7)

This is one of the most painful moments in life, Jesus –

to discover the love I thought I shared with someone else

is completely one-sided

to long with all my heart to be with someone I truly love
to miss them deeply and think about them constantly

then – in shock – to hear them say

“Yeah, well…I need my space.”

The temptation is to panic

to chase after them in a desperate attempt to reconnect
to frantically reassemble the pieces of what I thought we had.

But that never works.

The faster I run
the more determined they are to escape.

Besides, it’s demeaning to pursue someone who doesn’t want to be with me.

So how many times have You humbled Yourself

to come looking for me?

What is Lazaroo?
