"And I will restore to you
the years that the locust hath eaten."
Few of us escape having many of our
years ingested by these destructive
and devastating predators. And, there
are so many of them. For instance...
The locust of the liver (otherwise
known as alcoholic ridiculous)
The locust of the lung (smokus pocus)
The locust of the liabilities (greatus debtus)
The locust of licentiousness (mulsti lusti)
And, perhaps the greatest locust of them all...
The locust of lack...
Lack of purpose
Lack of direction
Lack of determination
Lack of consistency
Lack of hope
Lack of love
The locusts have taken their toll,
but the promises of the Lord are true...
He shall restore our years.
