What an amazing promise of hope, healing, and joy that the Lord gives us! This is especially meaningful to me after going through some very dark and hopeless times in my life. I was truly ugly on the inside and felt very ugly on the outside too. By the Lord’s grace, He is restoring me daily and making me more beautiful on the inside. Not to say that I have “arrived” by any means, but that I am a work in progress. He has turned my sadness to joy, given me hope in the midst of suffering, and continues to pour His blessings upon me daily!
