Because of your great compassion you did not abandon them in the wilderness. By day the pillar of cloud did not fail to guide them on their path, nor the pillar of fire by night to shine on the way they were to take. You gave your good Spirit to instruct them. You did not withhold your manna from their mouths, and you gave them water for their thirst. 

Nehemiah 9:19-20

And as you have been a byword of cursing among the nations, 

O house of Judah and house of Israel, 

so will I save you, and you shall be a blessing. 

Fear not, but let your hands be strong.

Zechariah 8:13

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brothers and sisters, 
whatever is true, 
whatever is noble, 
whatever is right, 
whatever is pure, 
whatever is lovely, 
whatever is admirable
-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-
think about such things.

But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, 
gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, 
impartial and sincere. And a harvest of righteousness 
is sown in peace by those who make peace.

James 3:17-18 ESV

What left a mark
no longer stings
because grace makes beauty
out of ugly things.
