LIFE IN ASHES

The Amalekites destroyed Ziklag
The family and wives are gone.
Everything is in ashes

David wept.

Could you imagine losing everything?

Your job
Your health
Your marriage
Your house
Your loved one

David was greatly distressed
Suffering from anxiety, sorrow and pain.
You know exactly how he felt

Is there really beauty for these ashes?

Despite the circumstances,
and the unknown future
David turned to God

I don’t know your circumstance today.
But I know it’s okay to weep.
And it’s okay to feel the way you do

And it’s okay to turn to God
