I remember vividly a chorus sang as part of the introduction of a church half hour on TV, then NTA ilorin.
beauty for ashes
the oil of joy for mourning
the garment of praise
for the spirit of heaviness
the wordings of this song can be found in Isaiah 63:1
beauty from ashes? is it possible? a finely moulded cup from a cracked crucible, how possible
one thing i have learnt is to trust God for his word, whether it makes sense to me or not. he honors his words more than his name.
to the crux of this short article, God is willing to give us all a new beginning if we will allow him.
permit me to share some verses on restoration with you.
i hope it blesses you like it blessed me
2nd Kings 8;6--and when the king asked the woman , she told him . so the king appointed unto her a certain officer saying " restore all that was hers and all the fruits of the fields since the day she left the land even until now.
Isaiah 59;18--I have seen his ways and will heal him, i will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners
Jeremiah 30;17--For i will restore health unto thee, and i will heal thee of thy wounds saith the lord, because they called thee an outcast, saying this is zion whom no man seeketh after
Joel 2 ;25--and i will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the canker-worm and the caterpillar, and the palmer-worm , my great army which i sent among you.
keep trusting keep believing, keep confessing your victory, your restoration and soon, you will see it begin to take shape.
I want to use this medium to welcome everyone of my reader back on board, i have been gone for long, a lot happened, but am glad God brought beauty out of it all.
stay tuned to this blog, don't forget to share on various social media pages
by Sunday the official article for the new week will be posted.
loads of love
