Beauty For Ashes ~

Beauty for Ashes ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

Is your heart heavy,
are you in pain
do your troubles . . .
fall like acid rain?

Are you in mourning,
is your heart broken
do you feel as if . . .
time has been frozen?

Are you in despair,
haven’t a notion
are you just going . . .
through the motions?

Do you feel hopeless,
times hitting you hard
has anguish left you . . .
despondent and scarred.

Well don’t you give up,
don’t fall into a heap
joy will come after
all the tears you weep.

God’s making something,
beautiful out of you . . .
just give Him your cares
and all things He’ll make new!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 61:3
King James Version

“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion,
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.”

Ashes to Beauty ~

Lord's Beauty by Meliza Celeridad free photo #15392

One day all of our sorrows,
will turn from ashes into beauty
for Jesus will come again . . .
for those who love Him truly.

He will raise the truly penitent,
from their fallen, sinful state
the poor in spirit He’ll elevate
all the way to heaven’s gate.

The brokenhearted will see,
their painful wounds bound up
their worries will be silenced
by the grace held in His cup.

He’ll set the remorseful free,
from the chains of their sin
as the yoke of guilt and shame
no longer, pierces from within.

All those who have made Jesus,
the Lord and Master of their life
will not be judged or condemned
nor be damned for their past strife.

He’ll comfort all who’ve mourned,
for He has gathered up their tears
their ashes will turn into His beauty
His glory will wipe out their fears!

the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.”
