"The best of our churches tend to welcome those captive (to alcohol, drugs, homosexuality, promiscuity, and so forth.) at first, but if they don't 'fix' pretty quickly, they will probably be despised. We like success stories--powerful testimonies. A captive in our midst soon wears out her welcome if she doesn't get with it pretty quickly.  In gracious contrast, God stands by us until we are free.  He uses various forms of discomfort to woo us to Him, but He never forsakes us.  God is the only One who is not repelled by the depth & length of our needs."  -Beth Moore, Breaking Free

"Because You are my helper, I sing for joy in the shadow of Your wings". Psalm 63:7

Thank you for standing with us in prayer, as we help captives to be free, and for the establishment of God's perfect will for His ministry, Beauty From Ashes™.

    Love the quote from Beth Moore!

    May each victim become an overcomer in Jesus' name. I have read here often but hardly ever make a comment. But today's the day!

    Many blessings in God's Kingdom! To God be all the glory!
