God will Help Re-Create Your Life Story!

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

Have you ever taken the time to think about your life up until this point? Have you ever wondered what would have happened if you had not made some of the choices that you’ve made in the past? If you’ve ever wished that you could have done some things differently, you may be living life with regrets. If you are living life with regrets, we encourage you not to be so hard on yourself, sometimes the choices you made may not have been your fault.  Often regrets may exist because you could have been led down paths of bad choices—some paths are longer than others—which can have a lingering effect on you mind, body, and soul. Your regrets may have exist because of being hooked up with wrong people and wrong associations in the past that were not God’s highest and best for your life.

A friend of mine spent a number of years living a life of alcohol and drug abuse. But God did an amazing work in his life, and he recently celebrated 25 years of being free from substance abuse. He now runs a successful business, has a devoted wife, and his children love Jesus. He has a passion to reach out to others who are in the ditch of life, and he serves as a wise and loving mentor in the rescue operations of their lives.

God never gives up on us! Even if we’ve made poor choices in the past that have left us with regret, we can choose how we will live now. We can choose to continue destructive living, simply wallowing in regret, or we can run to Christ believing that He has ways to “restore . . . the years that the swarming locust has eaten” (Joel 2:25). When we repentantly seek His healing and freeing power, He is merciful.

God never gives up on making something beautiful out of our lives.

While some consequences from the past may remain, we can be confident that God has a good and glorious future for those who trust in Him! —J. Stowell

Prayer for you;

Lord, it is with humble and grateful hearts that we come to You and lay all that we have been in the past at Your feet. We surrender our lives to you and we are asking you to restore to us the years that the swarming locusts have taken from us, Father God, make our lives beautiful again so that our lives will once again be good and so that it will bring you Glory!
