The scripture says, “God will give you beauty for ashes.” ashes represent our broken dreams, our failures, our disappointments & our hurts. you have to let go of the ashes before you can receive the beauty. if you won’t let go of the old, you can’t receive the new.
i can’t even describe how much that realization has opened my eyes. as bad as it was, as bad as it hurt... sometimes your life unravels a bit so that something more in alignment can weave its way in. don’t wait on the “why did this happen to me?” because sometimes that ‘why’ blocks you from receiving the very reason it happened. that’s where faith kicks in. letting go of the ashes—the hurt, the pain— & trusting the unknown.
