Lazaroo – Thursday, May 19, 2011

May 19, 2011 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with sky-high purpose:

“God…was pleased to reveal his Son in me so that I might preach him among the Gentiles…”
(Galatians 1:15-16)

There’s a reason, isn’t there, Jesus?
a method in Your madness –

the madness of caring about a mixed-up mess like me
reaching down into my life and infusing it with Your own

taking nothing
and making it something

taking that something
and making it great.

Oh, I know –

it’s reason enough that You love me
just for me.

I can’t tell You how much that means to me!

But there’s more.

You love to do multiple things at once.

Well.
Bit of an understatement.
It’s Your defining characteristic.

When You do one thing
You sorta like to accomplish a couple billion other things

while You’re at it.

So while You’re transforming me

You expect to work through me to transform somebody else

and somebody else…

and somebody else…

    Terrific .. what a great God we have & when we feel worthless in his plan .. He surprises us with so much more and we are able to accomplish His desires knowing the plan & gift is from Him and not of ourselves. Once again it is humbling and exciting to be used and led by our loving compassionate and sovereign Savior.

    Praise you Jesus!
