Lazaroo – Wednesday, May 1, 2013

May 01, 2013 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud to God:

“At that time I will search Jerusalem with lamps and punish those who are complacent, who are like wine left on its dregs…”
(Zephaniah 1:12)

Wow.

This explains so much, Jesus!

During the aging process, the winemaker cannot allow the wine to sit for too long on the strong, bitter sediment that settles to the bottom – the fine residue from the skin, seeds and stems left over from the grape-pressing process.

If the wine sits too long on its dregs, it becomes bitter.

So will I.

So that’s why You keep pouring me out!

No sooner do I get settled

moved in
adjusted
all comfy

than You pour me into a different container

one I’m not used to
out of my comfort zone
separating me from the familiar

to keep me from becoming complacent

turning bitter

to everyone who takes a taste.
