Joel 2:23-27

Does this say something to anyone else? It really humbled me to know how much work God has put in my life and still He insists on blessing me with more (the latter and the former rain)! And what I reap will be overflowing..and to top it all off He will restore the years I have wasted (eaten by locusts), where I was given to under-performance and all sorts of foolishness that kept me from Him. Today I am satisfied, I praise God, and I will never be put to shame. Amen!

Joel 2:23-27

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,
      My great army which I sent among you.
       You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied,
      And praise the name of the LORD your God,
      Who has dealt wondrously with you;
      And My people shall never be put to shame.
       Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel:
      I am the LORD your God
      And there is no other.
      My people shall never be put to shame.
