Trials will bring out the best of us through character pruning and making mistakes is just an inevitable part of our character pruning’s journey and growing in Christ.
However, if we keep holding on to our mistakes or the remnants of the past, we will not emerge from our past failures and shortcomings. Let’s release our ashes unto God’s hand and reach for a new beginning.
God is willing to use our mistakes for our own good if we are willing to let go of our ashes. There is another chance to make everything better. Yes, you can have a second chance, a third, a fourth and even a fifth chance to try again today, beauty for ashes can be yours.
God will give you all the chances you need, His mercy and loving kindness will follow you in all the days of your life. It’s never too late; give God your ashes today.
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
