Takeaway Truths:

Jesus wants to bring purpose to our pain. He does not want to waste it.

The devil wants me to believe that God has left me or that my body has failed me. But those are all lies.

We need to extend grace to people who say things and don't know your story and people who say things and do know your story.

I've had to release my white-knuckle grip on my fear because it's too heavy for me to carry and it isn't mine to carry.

You are not alone.

My heart that is so ready to love another baby is the same heart that already loves a baby who is a citizen of heaven.

Three Ways to Fight the Darkness:

  1. Combat lies
  2. Memorize scripture
  3. Find people to pray for you and over you
