mama fears

It's true. Mama's have fears. We fear for our babies, and pour our hearts and souls into them. We fear that we will fail them along the way. We fear that we will not know what to do, and will not be enough for them. We have these fears in us long before they are even born. I'm only 6 1/2 weeks pregnant with Baby 2.0. The first trimester is a scary time. A time of the unknown. A time where you wish for sickness, sore breasts and having to pee ten times during the night. You want these things as a comfort. You can't feel the baby moving, and you can't see a bump. You just want to know that everything is going ok.

It's called faith. Believing in the unseen. Knowing that God will handle things that are out of your control. And giving Him the control.

I could sit and worry and fuss day and night over this little tadpole swimming in my uterus, but what's the point? God already has plans for this little one. He knows. He will be my strength to get me through the long days ahead. {That and the tiny bit of coffee I can sneak now and then}

The next 6 weeks will drag by. And then the next 6 months will drag by. Until I'm holding my new baby in my arms, then it starts a whole new world of fears and worries a mama faces.

"I sought the Lord and He answered me. And He delivered me from all my fears." Psalm 34:3

Are you trusting Him, and allowing Him to deliver you from your fears?
