Joel 2:25

Yhvh promises to "restore the years the locusts have destroyed."

Considering the many ways that various types of "locusts" can steal years of LIFE from us, this is a great and precious promise.

I just read a sermon from pastor Mark Ridley (Christ the King Lutheran Church, Vestal, NY) from a few years ago. I found it as a result of a Google search to find the scripture above. (I'm on the road and do not have an "old-fashioned" concordance with me, and couldn't recall for sure where that scripture is found.) Pastor Ridley's sermon was a good read all the way through, but one line particularly stuck out for me:

"...there is nothing you can lose in this world that (Yhvh) cannot restore..."


and Amen.
