BEAUTY FROM ASHES   Leave a comment

Philippians 1:6 – Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will complete until the day of Christ Jesus.

Revelation 2:17 – He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches; To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone , and in the stone a new name written, which no man knows except the one who receives it.

I’m thinking about beauty from ashes today and about the timing of seeing the beauty. My story just from the last twenty-five years has many ashes being made and much beauty coming from those ashes. I’ve seen some of the beauty. I believe there is much of it I haven’t seen. There are ashes still being made, and I have to believe so is more beauty. I think it can be said of this year, that many ashes have been made in everyone’s lives. I can see the beauty from those ashes in the lives of those I follow on this website. The effort of being thankful and still praising Jesus even in the midst of the ashes is awesome.

My prayer and desire is to glorify Jesus with my life and be an encouragement and blessing in the middle of all the ashes to others. I encourage everyone to stay strong amidst all the ashes and see the beauty coming from them. We may not see all the beauty that comes from the ashes of someone’s life, or even our own, but Jesus does. And though we may not see all the beauty, I want to believe that the name on that white stone will tell all that Jesus sees.

Most of the sixth chapter of Matthew talks about some of the secret fruits of a righteous person’s life. And about how that causes treasures to be stored up in Heaven. I believe there is going to be much more beauty to behold from our earthly lives than we think, when we reach eternity with Jesus. I’m wanting to see more now of the beauty from the ashes in my life, but, I’m also learning to be content knowing I may not see most of that beauty until I’ve shed this mortal body.

So for now, I put what we would call little tidbits on this website. But, in reality all my(and yours) comments and posts are much bigger to Jesus, I’m believing. They have to carry more weight than we give them credit for. I’m choosing to believe they are creating more beauty than we can imagine. So keep up all the good work as Jesus leads. You all are beautiful people and helping each of us to walk through these ashes into the beauty Jesus has created.
