Lazaroo – Wednesday, August 7, 2013

Aug 07, 2013 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with…a settled feeling:

 “The priests, the Levites, the singers, the gatekeepers and the temple servants settled in their own towns, along with some of the other people, and the rest of the Israelites settled in their towns.”
(Ezra 2:70)

It’s nice to have a town to settle in, Jesus

a place to call my own.

Of course, there are times when I’m not exactly thrilled about the place I’ve settled.

Sometimes it’s the weather
sometimes it’s the people

sometimes it’s what’s happened there in the past

what’s happening now
what seems likely to happen in the future.

At such times I don’t feel very settled.

I daydream about moving somewhere else
anywhere else

until I remember that the grass only seems greener elsewhere

that each place has its downside
its unique challenges

and…that there’s a very good reason I’m here for this season:

You put me here.

    Right .. good decision for us to stay where God puts us .. even though lately we sometimes look around to see if there is someplace to run .. but that didn’t work out well for Jonah until God helped him rethink his decision. ; = )
