I will restore to you the years which the swarming locust has eaten - (Joel 2:25)
GOD HEALS ME SPIRITUALLY AND MATERIALLY

The ages of man, from infancy to old age, do not contain the whole story. We, as children of God, are all things - time-bound and timeless, matter and spirit, changing and changeless. This may be hard to understand intellectually but we all know it deep down.
So, if you wake at night, filled with the terror of past events and the yawning chasm of the future, say wakefully "Dear Father, I am in You and You in me. I have nothing to fear." The loss of loved ones, the years that have passed and which you may have squandered, the hardship or sorrow you may now experience, are marked in time but not in Timelessness.
God in you offers restoration, both spiritual and material. If you but let Him, He replaces hardship with comfort, sadness with joy, loneliness with companionship.
