Locust lunch

And I will restore to you the years that the locust have eaten…Joel 2:25a (ASV)

The presence of locusts does not mean we have to become so preoccupied in dealing with them that we don’t take the time to speak love and truth, serve and bless others, hold conversations and hold hands. Years can be eaten away as a result of our own poor choices, and by trivia, worries, and busy-ness.  When our lives seem like lunch for locusts it’s comforting to think that God’s work of restoration is so complete that He can even restore lost years.

Lord, restore my locust-eaten years.
