Lazaroo – Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Apr 16, 2013 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with deep longing:

“I have much to write to you, but I do not want to use paper and ink.”
(2 John 1:12)

Paper and ink fall short, Jesus.

So do emails

texts
instant messages
voicemails

sign language
whispers
facial expressions

telegraphs
morse code
signal flags

walkie-talkies
smoke signals
carrier pigeons.

None of those is adequate for expressing true love.

But that also goes for

phone calls
serving one another
face-to-face meetings

hugs
kisses
lovemaking.

Everything falls short.

There are no words
no means of communication
no actions

that can adequately convey

deep
pure
unadulterated

love.

But that’s no excuse, is it?

I’ve got to try.

I’ve got to express the love You’ve put in me for

family
friends
even total strangers

every way I can.

I know I won’t do it perfectly
but when I fall short

all I ask
is that You fill in the gaps

and let them know.
