Greetings Bible Enthusiast!


Joel 2:23-25

Be glad then, you children of Zion,
And rejoice in the LORD your God;
For He has given you the former rain faithfully,
And He will cause the rain to come down for you --
The former rain,
And the latter rain in the first month.
The threshing floors shall be full of wheat,
And the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil.

"So I will restore to you
the years that the swarming locust has eaten,
The crawling locust,
The consuming locust,
And the chewing locust...



We can glean much hope and renewed courage from the above passage of scripture, for it gives us a sense of the Father's heart. Remember this when Satan comes at you with the 'if onlys' and 'what ifs.'

God Bless You!

--FEATURED POEM:

It's amazing and incredible,
But it's as true as it can be,
God loves and understands us all
And that means you and me--
His grace is all sufficient
For both the young and old,
For the lonely and the timid,
For the brash and for the bold--
His love knows no exceptions,
So never feel excluded,
No matter what your past has been,
Trust God to understand,
And no matter what your problem is
Just place it in His Hand--
For in all of our unloveliness
This great God loves us still,
He loved us since the world began,
And what's more, He always will!
