Isaiah 61:3

He has sent Me… to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.

I have seen first hand how God can take a prodigal and raise them from the ashes into a person of strength. It has been an amazing thing to watch; He took my spirit of mourning and turned it into gladness and my prodigal’s despair and turned it into praise.

I hope you can visualize your prodigal rooted and growing in the Lord, a mighty oak of righteousness. God has the ability to take any life and make it into a thing of beauty and strength, for His glory.
