Sometimes the promise of beauty rising from ashes seems impossible. Sometimes it all feels like losing; and finding appears marred beyond recognition.

This is my battle cry: even if I don’t see it, the promise still stands. And I still believe it. 

Someday, there will be a beautiful exchange.

Matthew 10:39 “Those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it.”
