I Am Lazarus

God builds a mosaic of life with joys and sorrows, and we do not often see the entire picture or understand His plan until it is complete. God assembles rough edged grays and blacks, smooth and shining bits of yellows, passions and pieces of red, and elements of green and orange with emotions and tones of blue into a complete and wonderful mosaic of life. At some point in time we may be privileged to glimpse a portion of the mosaic being created or understand His unfolding purpose in life’s events. We may be able to see a revelation of His mysterious wonders, His bringing together of life’s events as when Lazarus emerged from the tomb.
The Fullness of Time

The fullness of time had come
With Lazarus’ healing completed
For he emerged from the tomb
With death and destruction defeated

Mary’s joys were fulfilled
With every tear wiped away
Martha’s faith was sustained
On that glorious resurrection day

The bystanders were filled with faith
And joined the Messianic throng
The evil priests were ensnared
And the way to Calvary begun

Revelation 7:14-17 (New International Version):

“…“These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore, “they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them. Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
