“All your Children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.” (Isaiah 54:13)
What is the speed of your brain? Feeling a little jumpy yet? Crying at the drop of a pin? Laughing at inappropriate moments? Most minds run a mile a minute at the beginning of pregnancy. Add in a million additional hormones and you’ve really got a party!
Don’t get ahead of yourself. Stop. Look. Listen. These are the directions we give a child when they learn to cross the street. You are getting ready to cross a street – more like a highway – of life into motherhood. Take it slow. Remember that it is a process.
Instead of getting on the hormone roller coaster start bringing your thoughts to the Lord. Practice spurs you on to excellence. Begin praying for your child. God already has a plan for baby and for you – start resting at His feet and experiencing His peace.
Mom Tip: Find something (a hobby, an activity, a class) that you enjoy and begin relaxing. It will serve you well during pregnancy to have a “happy place” to keep coming to!
