No matter what you’re going through, God can bring beauty from ashes.
The Old Testament prophet, Isaiah, first used those words: “beauty from ashes.” Perhaps that’s exactly what you need to hear right now in your personal journey.
One of our darkest seasons as a couple came as we worked through the abuse my wife suffered as a child. Counseling, God’s grace and a commitment to work through the tragedy has moved Jan to a life surrounded by restored relationships. What I love more than anything is the beautiful character that emerged from the ashes of abuse.
Nothing is too far gone for God’s redeeming hand to lift up. Remember Romans 8:28… that “God works all things together for good.” God can take any situation and bring beauty from ashes.
