Beauty for Ashes

I am struggling so bad coping with the loss of my husband. Jesus is the only person getting me through the darkest time of my life. I came across Isaiah 61:2;

to proclaim the year of the Lords favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion- to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. (NIV)

This scripture gives me comfort because I know the Lord is sitting here with me, comforting me. He placed a crown of beauty on my head. He anoints me with His oil of joy. He is restoring and renewing me. Praise Jesus!!

When I can’t breathe, Jesus gives me breath. I can feel Him doing it. He is binding my wounds daily, and I pray you can feel Him binding yours too.

I know the Lord still has a purpose for me here on Earth. So I will be glad that I am still here even though a piece of me is in Heaven. I will wait on the Lord. I will listen and follow Him and walk wherever He leads me.

Thank you, Jesus
