Lazaroo – Thursday, April 14, 2011

No comments, Apr 14, 2011

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with bullheaded, rock-ribbed faith:

“Look, O LORD, on my affliction, for the enemy has triumphed.”
(Lamentations 1:9)

O Jesus.

Do I ever know how this one feels!

There have been countless times in my life when it looked like these words should have been spoken over me – or over someone I love:

“The enemy has triumphed.”

If I had tried to call it anything other than total defeat
I would have invited ridicule from everyone around me.

“Stick a fork in it,” they said.
“It’s done.”

But since when can anyone count You out?

Is this not Your specialty

taking lost causes
and turning them into stunning victory?

When will I get it through my thick skull that this is what You do?

Is this not the very essence of faith –

to be sure of what I hope for?
certain of what I do not see?

He who laughs last

laughs best.
