I am so glad that God accepted us into His family with our brokenness and ugliness,
scarred by the sin and shame in our lives... but
He transformed our lives into something beautiful and useful!
BEAUTY FOR ASHES
He gave me beauty for ashes
When I gave Him my life
He rescued my soul from hatred and strife
He took all the stains and the guilt of my sin
Washed them away, gave me His peace within.
I thank Him, I'm grateful that He took my place
On Calvary's mountain, he suffered disgrace
Bore all of my sins and shame with Him there
The burdens so heavy that I couldn't bear.
I cannot restore the debt that He paid
As all my iniquities on Him were laid
I love Him, adore Him, My heart's filled with praise
I'll serve Him most gladly all of my days.
Beauty for ashes, what a glorious change
When God takes a life, starts to rearrange
All the desires, a love to fulfill
His purpose, His plan and His PERFECT will.
Isaiah 61:3 ...to give unto them beauty for ashes...
