Today’s inspiration is helpful because we often don’t know when we get bad news or something terrible happens unexpectedly. What do we do when the worst happens?
Tricia Roos shares her extraordinary story about when the doctors told her that the baby she was carrying would not live. Three months pregnant and afraid, she began a journey against the doctor’s advice. She resolves to have her child. The ending is the same, but the story changes everything.
She has walked out with blind trust and showed us that hardships could end in hope. What do you do when our wishes change?
Tricia shares some real-life applications to help us in the hardships of life:
- God separated day from the night so that we could have rest. Do all that you can to rest.
- Replenish yourself for the next day.
- Learn to live without planning so that your trust in God grows.
- Learn to give it to God, everything, every day, and rest in Him.
- Try to avoid the “what ifs” to keep anxiety away.
- Pursue this mindset every day; God has got you, so don’t worry so you can rest and figure it out later.
- When it is out of your control, let go and live in the moment.
- Lean into your trusted friends and be a friend to others.
Tricia shares the journey of how she held and loved the daughter who wasn’t supposed to live. In six days of a brief and remarkable life, Annabelle Roos rewrote the medical chapter on a chromosomal condition called Trisomy 18—giving life to a story that galvanized a large high school, a big city, readers of When Wishes Change, and audiences nationally.
