Beauty for Ashes

September 12, 2013

Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?

Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; For I shall yet praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God. -Ps42:11

This I recall, therefore I have hope

This I recall to my mind, Therefore I have hope. Through the LORD’S mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him!” The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, To the soul who seeks Him. -Lam3:21-25

The Lord’s mercies are fresh, new every morning
Because of the Lord’s mercies I am not consumed!
Yet will I praise Him-
Jesus, my Savior, my God, my exceeding joy!
-Ps43

Beauty for ashes
The oil of joy for mourning
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness …

I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, My soul shall be joyful in my God! -Is61:1-3,10-11

Isaiah 49:14-16But Zion said, “The Lord has forsaken me,
the Lord has forgotten me.”
15 “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
and have no compassion on the child she has borne?
Though she may forget,
I will not forget you!
16 See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands;
your walls are ever before me.

Don’t be afraid
For I have redeemed you

[ransomed you by paying a price instead of leaving you captives]
I have called you by name
You are Mine.
-Is43
I will make a way where there is no way -Is43:16
I will turn things around
Beauty will arise from your ashes
Joy will come in the morning
-Ps30
You will shine!
Arise!

Arise [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you—rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! -Is60:1

Arise, my dove, my beautiful one and come away with Me! -Song 2:10

Sunrise

June 22, 2010

Sunrise
Nichole Nordeman

If I had the chance
To go back again
Take a different road, bear a lighter load
Tell an easy story

I would walk away
With my yesterdays
And I would not trade what is broken for beauty only

Every valley
Every bitter chill
Made me ready to climb back up the hill
And find that . . .

You are sunrise
You are blue skies
How would I know the morning
If I knew not midnight?

You’re my horizon
You’re the light of a new dawn
So thank You, thank You
That after the long night, You are sunrise

There’s a moment when
Faith caves in
There’s a time when every soul is certain God is gone

But every shadow is evidence of sun
And every tomorrow holds out hope for us
For every one of us

You are sunrise
You are blue skies
How would I know the morning
If I knew not midnight?

You’re my horizon
You’re the light of a new dawn
So thank You, thank You
That after the long night, You are sunrise

You alone will shine
You alone can resurrect this heart of mine

You are sunrise
You are blue skies
How would I know the morning
If I knew not midnight?

You’re my horizon
You’re the light of a new dawn
So thank You, thank You
That after the long night, You are sunrise

You are sunrise

That song really brings out the idea of
beauty for ashes — eternal life for death …

and on that day when the sun rises for the last time
never to set again,
all that will remain …
everlasting light …
beauty for ashes …

sun & shield
grace and glory!

Song 4:6 Until the day breaks and the shadows flee, I will go to the mountain of myrrh and to the hill of frankincense.

Song 2:8-9,17 Listen! The voice of my beloved! Behold, he comes Leaping upon the mountains, Skipping upon the hills. My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag. Behold, he stands behind our wall; He is looking through the windows, Gazing through the lattice. … Until the day break, and the shadows flee away, turn, my beloved, and be thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains of Bether.
