Beauty In Ashes

To all who mourn in Israel,
he will give a crown of beauty for ashes,
a joyous blessing instead of mourning,
festive praise instead of despair.
In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks
that the Lord has planted for his own glory.
Isaiah 61:3 (NLT)

You have exchanged
Ashes for beauty
Fear for boldness
Strongholds for freedom
Insecurity for security
Burden for rest
Hopelessness for hope
Hatred for love
Turmoil for peace
Deception for truth and
Death for life

May I live in your truth and freedom all the days of life Lord, and may I bring you glory.
