Lazaroo – Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Sep 25, 2012 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with unexpected wonder:

“I am a rose of Sharon…”
                         (Song of Songs 2:1)

When Solomon’s wife called herself a “ rose of Sharon”

that was a sharply evocative image for him, Jesus.

Not so much now.

We’re pretty sure we know what a rose is –

but few people in the world have any concept
of the land of Sharon –

that beautiful, fertile plain stretching between the mountains
and Mediterranean shore.

As far as most of us are concerned

the “rose of Sharon”

is a red flower belonging to a girl by that name.

Perhaps only a handful of us picture the delicately fragrant

white sea daffodil

that rises up from Sharon’s rich, well-watered loam.

Your Word contains so many surprises

holds so much in store for me
corrects so many of my false impressions

if only I will devote myself
to plant my heart deep

in the rich loam of Your truth.
