Beauty For Ashes

This world can certainly give us some ashes. It can take beauty and reduce it to a pile of burnt up, crushed, and useless junk. But thankfully, God takes what is meant for evil and He uses it for good! He takes my brokenness and my mess, my pain and my emptiness, and He creates a new life overflowing with indescribable beauty and joy. In the hands of God, my ashes become the most beautiful thing ever seen!

Thank You Lord Jesus for loving me enough to take my ugly mess and transform it into amazing beauty! Help me surrender all that I am to You. I give You complete control and surrender my selfish desires. Create in me a pure heart and transform me into Your image, a masterpiece of love, joy and peace, for Your glory!

To console those who mourn in Zion,
      To give them beauty for ashes,
      The oil of joy for mourning,
      The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
      That they may be called trees of righteousness,
      The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.”
Isaiah 61:3
