Remember the time when you were pregnant? Surely, it was a joyful time as you anticipate the arrival of your small bundle of joy. But then, you also have worries, right? Some were petty like how to reduce stretch marks once you’ve delivered your baby. Others were far more serious like would you be be able to provide for your kid or will you be a great mom to this unborn child. In my case, I worried if I would be able to endure the pain of giving birth. It was my greatest scare as a first-time mom.
Every night, I prayed that I would be given strength and courage. I was inspired by many other moms who already walked through “the valley of the shadow of death” and survived. If they could do it, I can too! And obviously, I did! If there is one great lesson that I learned during my pregnancy, it’s this: worrying does not help improve any situation. Praying does.
