I just can't imagine....

I was reading my blog friend Julia's blog the other day and she mentioned having come across a blog called Bring the Rain. I had time, so I went over. I only knew that the author was pregnant with a baby named Audrey Caroline and that Audrey was not expected to live through her birth. I was completely pulled in to Audrey's story as told by her Mom, Angie. Angie's married to Todd, a member of the band Selah, and they have three daughters. Angie's struggles are put out for all of her readers to experience with her. She's very open and transparent about her doubts and fears and most of all her complete faith in her Lord, Jesus. God healed their little girl enough for them to be able to spend a few precious hours with her before He took her home to Heaven. If you have the time, it's definitely a powerful blog that will cause you to ask yourself some hard questions. I would love to think that I would have relied and leaned on my God if I were in Angie's shoes....but I'm not sure that I could/would. I'd like to think that I would....

I can't read that blog at work...I got through the first few sentences and I already started to tear up. I can't wait to read it though...

Di - it's amazing. I cried many times while reading through it. Do take the time to read it though, it's a powerful story.

Thank you for sharing the link to that. I'm going to visit soon.

A couple years ago, I went through an experience (though by no means similar) that really made me so angry at God and question my faith. It scared me, really, to think how easy it seemed to me that I'd question something I had relied on. It's a joy when you realize that, even in the dark, He's not letting go.

FADKOG - I went through one of those times too...years ago. I am working on a post about it...just haven't figured out the right time to post it. Do go read Angie's story...it really makes you feel like you're not alone n ho wyou feel and also that you're incredibly blessed at the same time.

Stacie - you're welcome. I know it means a lot to know you're not the only one feeling the way you do. Thanks for stopping by my blog to! :0)

Laura, thanks for the props...I cried until my face hurt. I know that God heard our prayers on Monday and blessed her family with those few precious hours. Now I pray that God will protect her, should she be blessed with a pregnancy again. Although, she must grieve this for a while I know.

God allows what he hates to accomplish what He loves.
