The Aroma of Beauty For Ashes

Isaiah 61:1-3 New International Version (NIV)
The Year of the Lord’s Favor

61 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
    because the Lord has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
    to proclaim freedom for the captives
    and release from darkness for the prisoners,[a]
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
    and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
    and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
    instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
    instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
    instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
    a planting of the Lord
    for the display of his splendor.

Word Of Inspiration..

~We serve an awesome God! He’s so awesome that He replaces our pain with purpose. We are then placed in a position to lend a helping hand to others who face trying times in their lives. My prayer is that you will not get weary while doing the will of God. The hurt, abuse, rejection, pain, or whatever you had do endure will not be in vain because God is making an exchange by giving you beauty for those ashes.
