Davey Blackburn is married once more in a fulfillment of Isaiah 43:16 (ESV):

"Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert," Blackburn posted to Facebook after he married Kristi Monroy.

The wedding photo was posted Monday to a slew of congratulations and prayers for the happy couple.

Blackburn's wife Amanda and unborn child were brutally murdered more than two years ago while Blackburn was out at the gym. Through the trial, Blackburn has preached forgiveness and used Amanda's death to spread the gospel.

Now, he, his son Weston and Monroy, who has a child, have come together as one family.

Of deciding to marry, Blackburn writes

You see a couple months after we began dating I read a book called Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. It's the story of the biblical character Hosea in a modern adaptation. Before reading this book, I was asking God this question, "Lord, what are you going to do to redeem my story? How are you going to make all this right? How are you going to bring justice for Amanda, another wife into my life and another mom into Weston's?" While reading Redeeming Love, I sensed God telling me,

"I want to redeem your story, Davey. But maybe I also want to use you to redeem someone else's story."

Davey and Amanda Blackburn had founded Resonate Church in Indianapolis in 2012.
