Lately I have been kind of negative and complaining a lot about everything. Last night while I was laying in bed and couldn't sleep my mind started to wander and think about silly things. I began thinking about labor and delivery and started to have that fear rise up inside of me which I know is wrong. Then I began to pray and I immediately began to feel peace. I know you probably think it is silly for me to be worrying about the birth already but when you lay in bed at night your mind can play lots of tricks on you. As I was praying I was reminded of the verse that I said last time, as I was pushing.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil. 4:13
Very basic but very powerful. We can do all things through Christ. This is so basic but when we have an understanding of this simple verse it can set us free to do many things that we thought we never could do. I read my friend Tanya's blog today and she had quoted this same verse so I felt like God was trying to keep my eyes focused on him. I am going to get through this first trimester and no more complaining. The only change I am going to make is that I am going to get through it on Christ's strength and not my own.
