“I will restore to you the years the locusts have eaten,” Joel 2:25
It is easy for me to see how that can be true with money–God turning on the tap, blessing the work of your hands, and money exponentially flowing.
It was not that clear to me how this applied to time.
But I am beginning to see.
Creativity is partly an ability to coalesce diverse thoughts, experiences, insights, reading, and knowledge.
When God touches you with his creativity, suddenly the thoughts, experiences and tears of the apparently barren, fallow years, coalesce into a beautiful mosaic, a beautiful bit of stained glass.
The years the locusts have eaten have been restored to you. The locust-eaten years now make a beautiful mosaic, an exquisite bit of stained glass. A symphony!
