The most important lesson that God has taught me in this season is a simple one: He never intends for us to stay stuck in our pain. He heals and restores, He calls us onward, He reminds us that in Him, we have great purpose and hope.
There’s beauty and greatness behind every mark of darkness. The ashes will fall away, they don’t stay forever, but His greatness and glory shine forever through every broken place and flaw we’ve struggled through.
There's still beauty ahead...straight out of ashes.
