Reflections for Lent

O God Who Wastes Nothing, please help me to use the ashes in my life as fertilizer for something beautiful to come. Amen.

The song “Ashes” speaks to hope, despite devastation, for something new to somehow be created out of the remains of broken dreams, broken hearts, broken lives and death itself. It is for any situation needing restoration, any person in need of renewal. May you be inspired!
