Beauty for ashes means something was set afire
Something has been burned away
The Lord no longer desires.
The ashes could be the bitterness
The negativity we spread
Or it could be the attitude that’s dead.
Ashes could be the doubt
The anger or the fear
The Lord has decided must disappear.
The door that we try to keep open
That relationship that’s out of date
May be what He wants to incinerate.
Whatever the dross that lingers within
Has to make room for what lies ahead.
If the Lord allows it to burn–then it’s dead!
So let Him blow away the ashes
Accept what is true
The Lord has something beautiful in store for you.
