To Grant to those who mourn in Zion- to give them a beautiful headdress instead of Ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called Oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified. Isaiah 62:3 God heart grieves with those who are suffering, and he looks for ways to bring solace and consolation to us in the midst of these times. He cheers Us by giving us a beautiful crown instead of ashes, to pull of gladness instead of mourning, and the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit. In Jeremiah 31:3, the Lord also reassures us by sharing." I will turn their mourning into Joy; I will comfort them, and give them gladness sorrow." In other words, he brings us hope. Love you always.
