Regret is a dead locust

I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten… Joel 2:25

It can seem as if locusts have eaten away at our relationships and resources, at our bodies and minds, at years of our lives, and we can’t get back the wasted time and wasted potential that lack of awareness or poor choices have caused. The eternal God who is in charge of time and focused on restoration is able to give us back those locust-eaten years through His Son. The remaining time He’s given us is not meant to be spent on regret.

Lord, help me to sweep up and dispose of the all the dead locusts in my life.
