You give me beauty for my ashes.

Posted by appolus on March 23, 2016

I give you rags, you give me wedding garments. I give you ashes, you give me beauty. I give you dry bones, you give me flesh. I give you sadness , you give me joy. I give you a spirit of heaviness , you give me a spirit of praise. I give you my failures, you give me a way ahead. I give you my temptations, you give me a way of escape. I give you my anxiety, you give me a peace that surpasses understanding.I give you lies, you give me truth. I give you my ambitions, you give me satisfaction. I give you past hurts, you give me reconciliation. I give you my wounds, you bind them up and they are healed. I give you my perversions, you give me purity.I give you my heart and my soul and all that is within me holding nothing back . It is painful and humiliating to come before your alter with only these things Lord. Brothers and sisters, the altar has always been a place of sacrifice, we have turned into an ” all you can eat bar,” where one simply chooses what one wants. God have mercy on us and restore a right spirit within us…..bro Frank

Isa 61:3 to appoint to those who mourn in Zion, to give to them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the mantle of praise for the spirit of heaviness; so that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of Jehovah, that He might be glorified.

      Hi Karyn, I am blessed to know that your soul is refreshed. I read your testimony and it is a powerful reminder of the power of love and the power of forgiveness. What amazing love we are recipients of. He is high and lifted up and His glory and light break through the darkness of our lives and penetrate into the very heart of who we are. Into the heart of darkness His light shines and forever illuminates us with His incredible love. We literally become broken vessels filled with treasures of love and forgiveness and out from that brokenness flows these treasure to a broken and hurt and sinful world. In the beauty of His holiness………………bro Frank

      • Bro Frank!

        I am thoroughly treasuring your words! Thank you for breathing to life what my heart has, on some level, always known. I am loved, accepted, forgiven, wanted…no matter what. May the Lord be glorified all the more when we share how He has restored our souls and brought beauty from ashes!

        Blessings!
