God can take your trouble and change it into treasure. Your sorrow can become joy- not just a momentary smile but a deep, new joy. It will be a bubbling new experience of new hope that puts brightness in your eyes and a song in your heart.
In the mist of darkness you will learn lessons you might never have learned in the day. We all have seen dreams turn to ashes- ugly things, hopeless experiences- but beauty for ashes is God's exchange. Offer yourself to God and ask for a spirit of praise so your whole being will be restored. ~Women Of Faith

God will replace your ashes with a crown of beauty;

the oil of gladness

instead of mourning,

and a garment of praise

instead of a spirit of despair.

They will be called oaks of righteousness,

a planting of the Lord

for the display of his splendor. {Isaiah 61:2}
