Right after my brain surgery, I was alone while recovering in an assisted living facility in Phoenix, AZ. My life was so uncertain. My dream home in Oregon was sold, my teaching career seemed to be over, I didn’t know where I would live, if I would ever recover my health, work, or live independently.

MY LIFE WAS IN ASHES.

Then… while driving in my car I heard this song. Tears came to my eyes as I realized God had sent me a message of hope.

“Yes I will rise Out of these ashes, rise From this trouble I have found And this rubble on the ground I will rise.”

When we need it most, our God will faithfully send us word that we are not alone. That with HIS strength… we will rise out of our ashes to new victories.

Don’t ever loose hope, hang on…. you have yet to live the best day of your life!

“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. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of His splendor.” Isaiah 63:1 (NIV)
