“And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.” Joel 2:25
Over these past few years, we have experienced a variety of things that has caused us to lose things.
Jesus Loves You
“Jesus wept.” John 11:35 (ESV)
As we take time to look at our lives there should not be any doubt that The Lord loves us. Every day He shows His love to us in a multitude of ways. Mary and Martha knew that Jesus loved them and their brother Lazarus.
"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble." Psalm 46:1
In life we are going to have good and bad days, and we will also have ups and downs. In the midst of our good days, we should not have any difficulty being thankful to The Lord, and even in our bad days we still should be thankful to The Lord.
Great Things Ahead
"Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase." Job 8:7
It is important for us to remember it is not where we start that makes the difference, but it is where we end up that counts the most. If we had a choice to start at the top or at the bottom, many of us would choose to start at the top, because it looks more prestigious, and it just seems to make more sense to start at the top.
