Lazaroo – Sunday, March 27, 2011

Mar 27, 2011 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo, as You call aloud for wise restraint:

“I had not told anyone what my God had put in my heart to do…”
(Nehemiah 2:12)

As hard as it is, Jesus…

sometimes I’d be wise to follow Nehemiah’s example
and keep to myself the assignment You’ve given me

at least for a while.

But that’s so hard!

It’s a stunning thing for someone like me
to be sent on a mission by You.

It makes me want to tell everyone I meet!

At first I think –

if I explain to them what You’ve put in my heart –
and point out that it’s Your idea, not mine –
they’ll get behind it and help me carry it out.

But that’s not always how it works, is it?

When I reveal Your mission too soon

it can scare them

even more than it does me.

Holy Spirit, I beg You:

Help me keep my mouth shut

till it’s time.
