Beauty for Ashes (Revised)

I fell into the fire.
My circumstances were dire.
I burned to a crisp, black, and charred.
I thought my soul would be permanently marred.

I was lying there
Feeling bare.
Yet I was in your sight.
You clothed me in white.

You cleansed me,
Washed me,
You gave me beauty
You took sin’s ashes away from me.

You lifted me up when I was low.
You brought me from charred remains and set me aglow.
Aglow with your love and your light.
Illuminated by your grace, glory and might.

    Spot on with this write-up, I actually think this web site wants way more consideration. I’ll most likely be again to read rather more, thanks for that info.

      I hope you come back. I’m glad you enjoyed the poem. I keep this site sparse so people can read it, especially those with a visual impairment. More will be coming in a week or two so you can actually hear the poetry, so keep on coming back! God bless you!
