Transitions: Beauty for Ashes 2

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That relationship that’s out of date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.









Isaiah 61:3
