Ashes

Lonely but never alone.
Abused but not abandoned.
Broken but not useless.
Bruised but not paralyzed.
Wounded but not perishing.
Defeated but not destroyed. 

He knows your pain. He knows the hurt inside. He sees every tear. He holds your broken heart. He offers hope and peace when you feel nothing but helpless. He lifts you up when you're too weak to stand. He carries you when you can't go any further.

Whatever ashes, He takes them and turns them into beauty. You may only see a sooty mess, but He sees what has yet to be created.

Esther

A father to the fatherless
A healer of the brokeness, you make
Beauty from the ashes

A helper to the helpless
A fighter for the hopeless, you love
Those who are alone

Those who are alone
