Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in determined dedication:
“I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD.”
What a generous declaration, Jesus!
But I’ve made a few of those…
that didn’t stick.
It’s one thing to give myself to You in this amazing moment, in this rush of emotion, out of a heart overflowing with gratitude.
It’s another thing entirely to say it
and stay it.
Sometimes I say too much in the moment.
By that, I don’t mean I could ever promise You
more than You’re worth!
Nor do I mean I might promise You
more than I can deliver.
All things are possible with You!
What I mean is:
It’s all too easy to promise You more than I will
