And then this morning I was telling my friend that I was just trying to make it to 37 weeks (tomorrow) before I would feel good about Bethany being fully ready to arrive. She mentioned, "Yeah, it's so hard not to be anxious in those last few weeks" and I realized that I was doing it again! Being anxious! Immediately I was reminded of the command in Scripture from Philippians 4:6- "Be anxious for nothing!!" NOTHING!! Not the enemies, not the upcoming birth, NOTHING!! It's a command! And here I was disobeying it. So back to the Scripture I went. . .
And this became my prayer: "Father deliver me from the lies and the arrows of doubt shot at me from enemies round about. Shelter me in Your wings and remind me of Your love, Your power, Your great hand upon my life. Amen."
It can be your prayer today too if you need it. :)
