Are you courageous enough to let go of worry? Are you brave enough to let go of discouragement and move forward in faith?
Matin Luther King Jr. once wrote, “Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.”
Of course there are some losses that take a lifetime to overcome. I couldn’t even begin to understand that kind of pain, and I would never assume you could just “let it go.” But I do know that He gives us beauty for ashes and He’s the source of all joy.
If you are in a place of discouragement hand Him your ashes, trust God with your future, and believe in the power of His goodness and grace.

Tilling the Soil
If you are discouraged, anxious, or worried, ask God to help you let go. Ask Him to take the burden of worry away and replace it with hope.
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. (Isaiah 61:3, KJV)

Darlene Schacht and her husband Michael live in Manitoba Canada where the summers are beautiful and the winters are cold. Together they’ve come to learn that relationships aren’t always easy, but that marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a treasure worth fighting for.
She began her publishing journey about twelve years ago when she pioneered one of the first online magazines for Christian women, known at the time as “Christian Women Online Magazine.” After three years, Darlene left CWO to blog as a solo author at Time-Warp Wife Ministries.
It was also during this transition that she worked alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure to write the NYT Best-Selling book, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Spiritual and Physical Fitness. Reshaping it All was the winner of both the 2011 USA Best Book Awards and the 2012 Christian Reading Retailers Choice Awards.
Author of more than 15 books, Darlene continues to write and to minister to her readers through her blog at TimeWarpWife.com.
