Throughout the Bible, ashes have often been the symbol of deep repentance and grief.
You are held by a Mighty God, and He has good still in store...
"God's will for my life"... how often have you pondered that notion?
You can try to bury Power, but it won't stay there. You can try to bury Truth, but it is not dead. You can try to bury Love, but it cannot be contained.
