Trusting God

I've shared before the amazing and wonderful blog of Angie- whose daughter Audrey Caroline was born with many problems and only lived for 2 and 1/2 hours. Audrey Caroline's story- along with her parents grace and faith as they walked through such a horrific time- is truly amazing and awe inspiring. (Note: If you have never been there and go- grab a BOX of tissues first. Trust me when I say that you will need them.)

My sweet friend Jean sent me this video of Angie and her husband sharing their amazing story. They are such a fabulous example of how their are times in life when you have to be faithful to God- even when you don't feel like it- even when you don't feel that He is being faithful to you. They trusted God- despite their circumstances. They are a great example of a family who chose to see the blessings in a horrific situation. Their hearts were breaking yet they praised Him, they loved Him, and they honored Him. They knew that He could and would use their sweet daughter and her story for His glory.

They truly live out this song by Mercy Me which says in part:

And I know they'll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that's what it takes to praise You,
Jesus bring the rain.

This is their story.

May you be as blessed by it as I was.
