Lazaroo – Thursday, January 14, 2010

Jan 14, 2010 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with somber humility:

“Wail, all you drinkers of wine; wail because of the new wine, for it has been snatched from your lips.”
(Joel 1:5)

Am I having any of these feelings, Jesus?

Is there something sweet I was hoping to taste that has been “snatched from my lips?”

If so, please show me

so I can deal with it in a way that truly honors You.

You know how hard it is for me to look forward to something

and have it taken away.

My disappointment is so great that I tend to rush right past the reason You allowed it.

So let me start there.

Why – at different times all throughout my life –

have You allowed me to have my expectations dashed?

Is it possible…

in spite of all my strongly held convictions, opinions and beliefs…

that You know better than I

what is best for me?
