Lazaroo – Thursday, June 7, 2012

Jun 07, 2012 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with heartfelt devotion:

“Therefore, this is what the LORD says: ‘I will return to Jerusalem with mercy…’”
(Zechariah 1:16)

That’s the only way I want to encounter You, Jesus –

when You’re coming to me
arms wide open in mercy.

I don’t deserve it anymore than Jerusalem did –

probably less.

But oh, how I need it!

I don’t want what I deserve.
I’m not asking for justice.
I don’t want what I have coming.

You won’t catch me complaining when things get difficult:

“Why is this happening to me?!”

I know why.

I deserve far worse.

Even though I constantly experience Your mercy
even though You shower me with mercy day after day

I never get used to it
I never take it for granted.

Every time You treat me better than I deserve

I shake my head in wonder.

Thank You, Jesus!

Thank You!
Thank You!
Thank You!
Thank You!

Thank You!
