Lazaroo – Thursday, June 13, 2013

No comments, Jun 13, 2013

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with God-given courage:

“My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak…”
(James 1:19)

I’ve got this one about half-right, Jesus.

I am slow to speak…
when I shouldn’t be.

Comes a time when the listening is over

when doing what’s right
demands that I speak.

Too often, that’s when I get timid
when my voice becomes

real soft.

I wait for someone else to stick her neck out

look around to see if there’s anyone else
who wants to paint a big ‘ol target on his chest.

I don’t like being shot at.

I don’t relish calling attention to myself
when it means I’ll be

shamed
ridiculed
shunned.

But that’s what You did for me, isn’t it?

They hung You out to dry

and die.

I reckon it’s time I found me some steel

to replace this noodle
I’ve been using for a backbone.
