Let Go of the Ashes


Let go of the ashes,

And let God’s beauty through.

In the middle of your mess,

He is there to help you.

He will raise your spirit.

He will heal your soul.

He can mend what’s broken,

And make you feel whole.


God will find you.

He sees where you are.

He will cover you with goodness,

And make you shine like a star.

You will face some demons,

But you will not be alone.

He will open up the path,

And lead you safely home.


Let go of the ashes,

That are left from the past.

Reach for your Savior,

And a peace that will last.

Listen for His voice,

And heed His Holy Word.

He will be your shield.

He will provide the sword.


He will destroy what is past,

And open up what’s new.

You will have beauty for ashes,

Because of His love for you.

He has so much good,

That is stored up for you.

He will help you right now,

And help pull you through.


You can make it through the fire,

You can let the ashes go.

It is a time for the beauty,

That you were promised long ago.

TRW 8-2-16


Isaiah 61:3

3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

There are so many times in life that we mourn. We have losses that seem too great to bear. We have to walk through these hard times, but we do not have to do it alone. We can hold onto the hope for a better tomorrow. Many times our trials become our testimonies and those testimonies help another person who is struggling in life. Our ashes may help someone else to the beautiful part of life. The part of life that we learn to rely on God for the answers or at least for His comfort. Some of our trials make us a better and more understanding human being.
