when a word is sent to Jesus

Lazarus fell ill so Martha and Mary sent a word to Christ
to let Jesus know all that was occurring in their lives
but Jesus did not respond nor did he venture right away
He stayed where He was for two whole days

now Jesus loved Martha, Mary and Lazarus very much
and He sensed that Lazarus was in need of His healing touch
but what many can't see or even understand
is that sometimes we have to wait on God's unfolding plans
God may need to position us so that we can come to see
and understand that our emergency may not need His urgency

your eyes and ears are just for the gathering of information
but they're not equipped to decipher godly interpretation
a word sent to Jesus may require a lengthy process
as time may be needed before the situation can be addressed
now Lazarus had died but that was God's divine plan
so that Jesus could raise him from the dead with His anointed hands

we all have to go through some stuff in order to be reborn and renewed
so that the Holy Spirit can now work in and through you
to be transformed and transcended by the power of the Holy Ghost
no longer to compartmentalize those things in life we need most
to get rid of the dead things physically and spiritually
which are giving off a foul odor all around thee
and when Jesus arrived He said, "where is he?"
my friend Lazarus who has need of Me
but what Jesus was really asking for is those gifts to us He gave
those blessings we have packed away or buried in a grave
we need to stop letting Satan whisper words of doubt 
that make us feel incapable of working it all out
for not everything we bury is truly dead and gone
as God has the resurrection power to revive it and make it strong

so if you're buried under the burden of life's situation
its time to seek out Jesus for divine rejuvenation
so roll away those stones that have you in bondage and entombed
be they internal or external let Jesus have some room

now Jesus said Lazarus come forth and he did obey
and he was still in the grave clothes from his interment day
so when God sends you an invite come as you are
He's not looking for perfection nor a shining star
and when a word is sent to Jesus we need to understand
that He will respond according to God's divine plans
