Lazaroo – Tuesday, May 29, 2012

May 29, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with vivid awareness:

“How the cattle moan! The herds mill about because they have no pasture…”
(Joel 1:18)

I’m trying to get a picture of these cows, Jesus…

turning in circles
confused, aimless
bumping into each other

sniffing the dry ground in a vain attempt
to find a morsel of grass

making an awful sound
the exact opposite of the contented lowing
of a cow that has eaten its full.

That’s me –

when I stop feeding on Your Word.
when reading, studying, researching my Bible

are no longer part of my daily life.

I lose my sense of real purpose

unsettled
distracted
frustrated
discontent.

Somewhere within me there’s a deep, inner moaning

expressing itself on the outside
with whining, sarcasm, criticism, complaint.

So why, exactly, do I allow myself to backslide into this miserable state?

I get busy
miss a day
then two

and before long

I’m no longer my Christian self.
