Lazaroo – Thursday, April 11, 2013

Apr 11, 2013 I Lazaroo.

 

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

“Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest is my lover among the young men. I delight to sit in his shade, and his fruit is sweet to my taste.”
(Songs of Songs 2:3)

That’s what I want to be to the people around me, Jesus –

an apple tree –

or maybe a pear, orange, pineapple, cherry tree –

whatever they need from You
through me.

When my life touches my friends

neighbors
coworkers
family members
total strangers

I want to be sweet to their taste!

I don’t want to make them roll their eyes
have to tolerate my obnoxious issues.

I long to be

a blessing
an encouragement

to everyone with whom You bring me into contact!

When the sun is hot
when they’re tired, exhausted, weary of the battle

I want to be that person they can turn to

sit under my shade
find cool…sweet…relief.
