Lazaroo – Wednesday, July 8, 2009

Jul 08, 2009 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in holy fear:

“Now this is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘Give careful thought to your ways.’”
(Haggai 1:5)

That’s hard to do, Jesus.

I know I should put the hectic pace of my life on pause

step back

take stock of where I’ve been

evaluate what I’m doing

and determine where I will end up –

if the steps I’m taking remain unchanged.

But it’s hard to hop off this merry-go-round long enough to complete that exercise.

I’m afraid I’ll miss out on something.

And…

I’m not sure I’ll like what I discover.

Actually, it’s a little scarier than that.

I’m afraid YOU won’t like what I discover.

But of course, if that’s the case

You already know.

Which means I’m the only one in the dark.

Which means…

It’s time for me to schedule an appointment with You

To give careful thought to my ways.

    “Giving careful thought to my ways” is so where I am “at” today. But why does it have to be so painful. I guess we wouldn’t change if there wasn’t some pain associated with it.

    Thanks for such a timely message, Steve.

  2. Jeff Says:

    Yes. This one is very honest. We want what we want. It is time to want what He wants.
