Lazaroo – Wednesday, October 19, 2011

Oct 19, 2011 I Lazaroo.


Come to full, focused attention, as you pray aloud the words of this Lazaroo:

“…the complacency of fools will destroy them…”
(Proverbs 1:32)

I knew it wasn’t best to quit striving for improvement, Jesus.

I just didn’t know it would destroy me.

Everywhere I look, people settle for “good enough.”

But now I hear You saying “good enough”

isn’t good enough.

You’re telling me

no matter how far I’ve come
no matter what You’ve enabled me to achieve

there’s more.

So long as I’m drawing a breath on this earth

I haven’t “arrived.”

This planet is only a way station

not my final destination.

It’s the gym

where I work out
where I learn, practice, get stronger

not my home.

Not where I move in

but where I move on.

You want me happy, content

but never satisfied – 

waking up each day to push farther

to my last day on earth

when at last I become

everything You created me to be.
