Friday, June 4th. Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

"A traveler visited an ancient volcano and described it as a cup-like hollow on the mountain summit full of lush vegetation, and that, where the fierce heat had once burned, lay a still, clear pool of water, looking up like an eye to the beautiful heavens above. That vision brings to mind the question: How many a man, who before conversion, was a fiery, death-dealing volcano of sin, and who has, by the grace of Jesus, become gentle and beautiful, reflecting in his measure the heavenly peace and loveliness of all creation?"

Isaiah 61:3 says,
“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.”

I don’t know about you, but I praise God for taking the fiery things in our lives and giving us beauty for ashes.

"God, thank You for the transformation You bring to us.

Bro. Bill

God is awesome!
