And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. (Joel 2:25 KJV)
God is merciful and full of Grace he is ready to help his children glorify him. We do reap what we sow, but he controls the reaping!
I deserved my ships to come in, but he sunk many and only a couple of kayaks made it!
In the remainder of our lives we should beseech heaven for the ability to give him more glory then when we started off at a snails pace. God can do it!
