Testimony Tuesday- Holly and John Mark

I have some amazing friends. They aren't amazing on their own but God has been amazing in their brokenness. 

My friend Holly and her husband John Mark shared their story at church the other day and I asked if I could share it here. Please watch this video. It's short. And precious. And God is amazing. 

A few notes from Holly-
God really did work in my heart after our first miscarriage. I was angry initially and very confused. So hard to understand the point of our loss, especially since we had been waiting and praying for such a long time. He broke me. He broke me over the next year until I came to the place where I honestly desired Him more than I desired a child. Took a long time to get there, though, and it was a daily battle to surrender my plans to Him. We were open to pursuing another beautiful route like adoption, but God kept asking us to wait, and we never felt a peace about heading that direction during that time. He Knew!! He had some "good and perfect gifts" coming our way. But He wanted us to learn what it meant to completely trust. Oh, and we're STILL learning that.

God is bigger than this and Jesus can fix-it.
