One month and baby girl will be here (maybe less after all of the cramps I’m having). I’m a bit nervous even though this will be my 3rd delivery and the other 2 were safe and healthy. Do you want to hear something funny? I‘m anxious about being anxious. The hormones and post-partum depression denied and gone unchecked that led me to so much anxiety is staring me in the face.
Questions of what-ifs swirl in my head.
& then I remember the Freedom that God gave me through counseling and a little medicine. No shame.
I will not listen to the negative thoughts, but will focus on the positive. I know that God is a God of redemption and healing. I need to continue memorizing God’s truths that tell me who I am and Who He is. The more I focus on myself, the more anxious I become.
Here’s to the next month of deep breaths, prayer and trusting in the amazing God of the universe. (& maybe a few more snuggles with my kids!)
What do you do when you begin to feel anxious?
