Out of the Ashes (Isaiah 61), by DianaDee Osborne

OUT  OF  THE  ASHES  (Isaiah 61)
ALBUM:      Amazing  LORD 'n' Life   
Song location

Song Story:  THE  MUSIC:   
        From Smith Wigglesworth “On the Anointing”, page 88:  “We are to be more helpless, more dependent on God. These are the ashes of the sacrifice...” I found this sentence early Christmas morning, just as I was completing this song draft. I caught my breath in awe of God.  Verse 2 was  written@ altar.
Dedicated to Protector LORD God, 6 December 2012

As Jesus went into the synagogue at the beginning of His ministry, He read the PROPHECY OF HIMSELF:  From Isaiah 61, verse 1  

        “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, 
Because the LORD has anointed Me 
To preach good tidings to the poor; 
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, 
To proclaim liberty to the captives, 
And the opening of the prison to  those who are bound..." 

Out of the ashes come forth warm flame
when I reach in and stir black ASH again.
    Hot embers no one saw spring to life again.
    Dirty ash  I thought worthless  warms the room again.
Stove ash stirred to life by my touch. Ash turned to blessings prove:
Romans 8: 28,  God's promise is TRUTH.
Isaiah 61:           Messiah for YOU.
Jesus through God's Luke 4   offers life to YOU.

READING 2:  JESUS continued to read the prophecy of HIMSELF. This is told in Luke 4  starting with verse 17.   Jesus began with “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, --and Jesus continued -- Isaiah 61 verse 3--  “...To console those who mourn in Zion,   To give them BEAUTY  for  ASHES, The oil of joy for mourning,  The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness,  The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified."  -- Jesus, described in Isaiah 61

Out of LIFE's  ashes can spring forth heat.
Though I feel cold and lifeless, God stirs me!  
    Joy that I thought was gone, God brings to Life again!
    Sorrow ashes seemed so cold. God turns to blessings.
My life's ash stirred to life by God's touch. Ash stirred to blessings prove:
Romans 8: 28,  God's promise is TRUTH.    [2 Timothy 3:16]
Isaiah 61:         Messiah for YOU.
Jesus through God's Luke 4   offers life to YOU.
[John 10: 10]
