Three months ago today, we walked into the doctor's office for a routine appointment and walked out with our lives forever changed. We never asked for or expected this to be our path in life, but here we are regardless. And oh how God has used this to grow me. He is my strength when all I had was weakness, my hope when all I saw was despair, my triumph when all I felt was failure.
And every single good thing that has come from this, has come from God. We did not overcome this, HE overcame this. We did not prevail, HE prevailed. We were not strong, HE was strong through us. He has taken a tragedy and used it for His good. He has strengthened our faith and our marriage. And that's not to say that it takes any of the pain or heartbreak away, because it doesn't. There are still days that I can't stop thinking about it and days where the tears win, but I don't think I could go through it if I didn't know that God could use it for His good.
So please know that whatever you are going through, good can come from it. God can restore and revitalize, renew and redeem. There is nothing that He cannot work for His good. He will be there and walk with you through everything. He can heal the brokenhearted.

I seriously appreciate all of the love and support that y'all have offered up to us over the last three months. I never expected blogging to help me through this, but it has, and that's because of y'all. So thank y'all for everything. And we are doing good these days. We are trusting in the Lord's ultimate plan and we know that it is a perfect plan. He is so good, y'all. I hope y'all know that. He is good.
