Beauty for Ashes

The girl dragged herself into the  temple
"Will the great one forgive me this time as well?" She asked herself, again and again.
Her body weeping uncontrollably she broke down before the mighty one and wept.
Tears flowed between her fingers,
"I am so wretched, she sobbed, forgive me O god."
The Rabbi, who had come in just then
Put his hand on her shoulder turned her around to face him and said
"Daughter, you are redeemed by God". See what god says in his word (Isaiah 44:22 k.J.v)
“I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee”
"God has buried them in the deepest sea.He remembers your sins no more
Neither should  yee."
Wiping away her tears with his hands, he continued
"God gives you Beauty for your ashes
The oil of joy for your spirit of heaviness
Go, now beloved, and live for his glory (ref Isaiah 61:3 K.j.v)
Bask in his will and the realm of his promises".
She nodded, her face shining, eyes brimming with joy,
She left the temple with quick steps renewed, forgiven and totally made whole.
"To live for your glory alone , O God for the rest of my life is what I will seek to do... she determined in her heart and left.
