Lazaroo – Sunday, May 20, 2012

May 20, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with sober determination:

“Do not be terrified by them, or I will terrify you before them.”
(Jeremiah 1:17)

It’s my choice, isn’t it, Jesus?

I don’t have to be afraid of people.

It doesn’t matter if they’re

bigger
stronger
smarter
richer

better equipped
better connected
better educated
more experienced

above me in the food chain.

I have You.
And You’re enough.

Did I say, “You’re enough?”
Forgive me.

You’re infinitely more than enough.

But it’s my choice.

I don’t have to believe in You.

Of course, once I make that choice
there are consequences.

The moment I decide You don’t exist
when I assume You’re not there for me

I’m left with an awful conclusion:

I’m on my own.
All alone.

There’s no one to come alongside me.
Nobody’s got my back.

In that case, I have no basis for courage

but only pure, raw, stark

terror.


My call.
