Beauty For Ashes

Forgive yourself for the mistakes you’ve made
Drop the baggage of yesterday

Don’t relive negative memories
Guard your mind, so you can see

That you have to let go of the old in order to receive the new
“Beauty for Ashes” The Spirit of The Lord says, He has promised you

Lay down bitterness, disappointments and regrets of the past
Don’t replay negative thoughts in your mind

You’ll never get to where you’re going
If you’re always looking behind

Because your past can poison your future
Focus only on what you can change

You’ll have to let go of the ashes
To get God’s beauty in the exchange

Power Verse – Isaiah 61:3 (TLB)
“To all who mourn in Israel He will give; beauty for ashes; joy instead of mourning; praise instead of heaviness. For God has planted them like strong and graceful oaks for His own glory.”
