Lately I have been feeling the less glamorous side of pregnancy, I’m back to extreme exhaustion, and I am feeling a bit like a blob. I try each day to dress pretty, do my make up and make sure that I really look nice, and yet I still feel like a bit of a baby whale. On the one hand I know and feel that this is the most beautiful I have ever been or will ever be, but on the other hand I feel like I am unattractive and fat. I guess its part of pregnancy. This is all mixed with a slight anticipation and fear of the days to come. I was looking for ways to counter this feeling, and I came across some bible verses, which I am hoping will help me along the line.
Be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead!
I Peter 1:6
I sought the Lord and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go, I will counsel you and watch over you.
Cast your cares upon the Lord, for he cares about you.
I Peter 5:7
Stand still and consider the wondrous works of God.
God has poured out his love into our hearts.
I will give you peace and quietness.
I Chronicles 16:11
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
For God did not give us the spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, of love, and of self control.
II Timothy 1:7
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.
A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; But as soon as she has given birth, she no longer remembers the anguish, For joy that a child has been born into the world.
Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust Him, and He will help you. Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for Him to act.
