Joel 2: 21-27
Be not afraid and be glad and rejoice, the Lord has done great things
Be not afraid for the open pastures are becoming green
Trees are bearing their fruit , the fig tree and the vine yeild their riches
Be glad, Jovi , rejoice in the Lord for He has given you the autumn rains in righteousness.
I will send you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before.
The threshing floors will be filled with grain;
The vats will overflow with new wine and oil
I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten.
I have sent my great army for you
You will have plenty to eat until you are full
You will praise the name of the Lord who has worked wonders for you
Never again will you be shamed
You will know that I am the Lord your God
The Lord who loves you, understands you, cares for you, holds your hand, tells you the secrets that runs in the deep and heals you with his healing blood, the Lord who has watched over you all your life, who framed each cell of your being in the womb, who knew you even before you were born. This is my promise. I will watch over you and I will be be by your side no matter what, loving you.
