heartache & baby loss- casey leigh

casey leigh is one of the greatest truth tellers i’ve read. she speaks from the deepest parts of her beautiful heart while in the midst of the hard stuff. it’s one thing to go there after you’ve come out on the other side, but to share while you’re in the thick of it? that takes extraordinary courage, identity, and vulnerability. this post here? was the night she lost a baby. her 2nd miscarriage, 5th total pregnancy. and i’m so moved by her honesty, hope, and assurance of God’s sovereignty. and i’m thankful to know & love the same Jesus that gives her all of those good gifts mentioned above: honesty, hope, courage, identity, vulnerability. i’m so sorry, sister.

 I will go to sleep and wake up empty.
 The grim, heartbreaking reality of tomorrow could be suffocating but somehow God is overwhelming me with…
