Exchange Ashes for Beauty


Do you know God wants to take care of you? It’s true. He wants you to give Him all your cares, your problems, your failures, your “ashes”, and in exchange He will give you beauty.

Many people want God to take care of them, but they continue worrying or trying to figure out the answers to their problems instead of waiting for His direction. They continue to wallow in their “ashes” and expect God to give them beauty. But it doesn’t work that way, God can only give you beauty when you give Him the ashes.

It’s a great privilege to be cared for by the King of kings, so give up your worries and concerns to Him and enjoy His protection, stability, and fullness of joy.
