Jesus – Our Savior – Our Lord – Gives Us beauty for Ashes – Joy for Mourning – Praise for the Spirit of Heaviness – Calls Us Trees of Righteousness – The Planting of the Lord – That He Might Be Glorified –

Bullrushes or Typha latifolia, close up

Look at the fields – they are ready to harvest
Is that what I should see – I don’t know –
Maybe so –

Lord – You give us beauty for ashes –
Joy for mourning –
Praise for the spirit of heaviness –
You call us trees of righteousness –
The planting of the Lord –
That You might be glorified –

My confidence is in You – Strong One –
You cover me with a garment  of praise –
All my days –

Lord – You give us beauty for ashes –
Joy for mourning –
Praise for the spirit of heaviness –
You call us trees of righteousness –
The planting of the Lord –
That You might be glorified –

I say to myself – Guard your thoughts – Too much
Sorrow provides no comfort – no charm – too much
Grief does harm –

Lord – You give us beauty for ashes –
Joy for mourning –
Praise for the spirit of heaviness –
You call us trees of righteousness –
The planting of the Lord –
That You might be glorified –

I said to myself – wait patiently on the LORD –
Who brings me out of the miry clay and sets
My feet on The Rock –

Lord – You give us beauty for ashes –
Joy for mourning –
Praise for the spirit of heaviness –
You call us trees of righteousness –
The planting of the Lord –
That You might be glorified –

Be sure – my friends – if it’s not good -It’s not
From Him – Every good gift is from the Father –
Our God is good –

John 4:35 – The Bible (KJV) – Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

Isaiah 61:1-3 – The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.

Isaiah 61: 10-11 – I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels. For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.

Psalm 40:1-3 – I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.

James 1:17 – Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
