... to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. Isaiah 61:3
I send this scripture out to all of you who are going through a trying time now. Whether it be a sickness or death in the family, loss of job/finances, ending of a marriage or friendship or whatever the situation may be. Just know that God is there to give you beauty for ashes. He's there to restore you; to mend your broken heart; to give you unspeakable joy, peace that passes all understanding, and hope in Him-through His son Jesus who paid the ultimate price for us.
Though it may not feel like it, Jesus is right there, ready to comfort you in your time of need. Waiting with His arms stretched wide to receive you. Reach out to Him and allow His love to flow through you. You will be glad that you did! Much love to you all. IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
