Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with mounting confidence:
“‘I am with you,’ declares the LORD Almighty.”
That’s all I need to know, Jesus:
You’re with me.
Well…that doesn’t mean I possess
all the knowledge I need to acquire
all the people I need to meet
all the skills I need to build
all the wisdom I need to absorb
but the fact that You’re with me
is the only thing
that makes any of that matter.
If You’re not with me
the knowledge I acquire is never enough
I will never be able to find the right people
my skills will prove to be utterly inadequate
my wisdom will prove hollow.
And if You’re opposed to me?
I don’t even want to go there.
The mere thought makes me shudder.
So…having established all that…
how do I get You to be with me wherever I go?
I’ve got to irrevocably commit
to be with You.
