Making up for lost time

Do you ever wonder why you go through so much junk? Last week a friend of mine posted their Facebook status update like this: "...Is wondering how to define enough?"

You know, God is full of grace; grace that we won't ever fully understand. This morning, as I was reading some Psalms, one particular verse jumped off the page for me. I felt like I needed to share it with you. It is for someone today:

Psalm 90:15- "Give us gladness in proportion to our former misery! Replace the evil years with good."
  • You ever feel like you have had enough? God can and will replace your former misery with gladness. Wait on him. It's coming.
  • And check this out: my favorite three words of this verse are, " proportion to..."!! Have you had lots of misery? God wants to give you lots of gladness. Hang in there. Maybe the rule is: the more your misery now, the more your gladness later.
  • You ever feel like you wasted years on "evil"? Are you still living with any past regret? This verse is an encouragement that God has the power over your past. He can REPLACE the evil years with good ones. Trust him for that today.
No one knows how to make up for lost time like God does!
