4/5/2018 Beauty for Ashes

I am the God who gives beauty for ashes and turns mourning to dancing. You must choose, though, to walk into the beauty and begin the dance. The things that have brought you sadness and caused you to cloak yourself with sackcloth and ashes are in the past. You must make the choice to exchange it for the garments of praise I’ve provided you. Leave your¬†heaviness with Me, and accept what I have offered you. To see you smile would delight Me.¬†Is. 61:3, “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.”
