“To grant those who mourn in Zion, Giving them a garland instead of ashes, The oil of gladness instead of mourning, The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting. So they will be called oaks of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” (Isaiah 61:3, NASB95)
Will you be an oak of righteousness of My planting? Or will you bend like a willow before each storm? You have mourned for a lost love. Let Me comfort you with My Love. Let Me give you a garland instead of ashes and a mantle of praise. Let Me anoint you with the oil of gladness instead of ashes for mourning. Let Me be glorified in your witness from this day forward.
