Beauty From Ashes by Pastor Austin Tialavea
”Beauty from Ashes”
“To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of BEAUTY FOR ASHES, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the LORD has planted for his own glory.” Isaiah 61:3 NLT
1. THE SPIRIT OF KINDNESS HAS INCREASED, AND IT’S BEAUTIFUL!!
“Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, BE KIND TO EACH OTHER, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.” Ephesians 4:31-32 NLT
2. FAMILIES ARE DOING WHAT FAMILIES ARE SUPPOSED TO DO!!
“So teach us to NUMBER OUR DAYS, That we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12 NKJV
3. FILL YOUR TANKS, NOT FOR THE MILES LOST BUT FOR THE JOURNEY AHEAD!!
“You have mourned long enough for Saul. I have rejected him as king of Israel, so FILL your flask with olive oil and go to Bethlehem. Find a man named Jesse who lives there, for I have selected one of his sons to be my king.” 1 Samuel 16:1 NLT
