Beauty From Ashes

Every now and again a song comes along that just says exactly what we feel but we can't quite put into words... Whenever I get to feeling like I can't deal with thing anymore, this is one of the songs I listen to - It reminds me where I was, because I'm certainly not at the place anymore where the best I can do is just get through the day (though I was there for quite a while after my husband's arrest) and it reminds me where I'm going, and that makes it all easier to bear.

If you are struggling, remember that God tests our faith so that we can test his faithfulness. He ALWAYS passes the test.

Artist: Superchick
Album: Beauty From Pain
Song: Beauty From Pain

The lights go out all around me
One last candle to keep out the night
And then the darkness surrounds me
I know I'm alive
But I feel like I've died

And all that's left is to accept that it's over
My dreams ran like sand through the fists that I made
I try to keep warm but I just grow colder
I feel like I'm slipping away

After all this has passed
I still will remain
After I've cried my last
There'll be beauty from pain
Though it won't be today
Someday I'll hope again
And there'll be beauty from pain
You will bring beauty from my pain

My whole world is the pain inside me
The best I can do is just get through the day
When life before is only a memory
I wonder why God let me walk through this place

And though I can't understand why this happened
I know that I will when I look back someday
And see how You've brought beauty from ashes
And made me as gold purified through these flames

Here and I am at the end of me (at the end of me)
Trying to hold to what I can't see
I forgot how to hope
This night's been so long
I cling to your promise there will be a dawn
