Trade These Ashes In For Beauty

Today I woke up feeling beautiful. I got dressed up, everyone I met today said I had this “GLOW”….my church mate reminded me this the whole week.

I wasn’t like this 6 months + ago, I was a mess. My heart was broken, I couldn’t sleep in the night, I couldn’t sleep in my bed or my house. I was always changing camp every 2/3 days….

I didn’t want to be alone, because I feared that God would tell me the truth – that He loves me. I still wanted to grieve and beat myself down.

Then I needed to come back home, one day I got on my knees and all I could do was laugh….laugh at the devil!

The love of God? I wouldn’t be able to explain it. How he turns shame to glory? I am a testimony.

As the day passed by today, i remembered how we should all trade these ashes (wounds, disappointments etc.) in for beauty.

Today’s Song : Don Moen – At the foot of the cross

“…Trade these ashes in for beauty
And wear forgiveness like a crown
Coming to kiss the feet of mercy
I lay every burden down, at the foot of the cross…”
