Do not fear a bad report or statistics. I am 46 years old and had 0-1% chance of pregnancy and if so it held a host of other risks. I write this as I am 29 weeks with a healthy baby! God sets the standard not the world. He is in control! When things discourage us and circumstances say other wise, turn you eyes to Jesus! He is the author and finisher of our faith! The author of our lives as He writes our story we are to believe and trust!
Do not fear anything, I am with you, do not be afraid, I am your God!
"Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you and approved of you as my chosen instrument. And before you were born I consecrated you to Myself as My own."
Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above it comes down from the Father of Lights the Creator and Sustainer of the heavens....It was of His own will that He gave us birth, as His children by the Word of truth.
This child you have created Lord, is in your hands as am I, there is no fear only faith! God has got this!
Now at 34 weeks pregnant I had visited the Dr. as they monitor me more closely due to my age, and I was given a report that was not what I wanted to hear. Yet a lot of it was speculation, nothing confirmed, and precautionary .
I shared it with some and got to the point I did not even want to talk about it anymore. I wanted answers, I wanted peace.
So I turned back to these scriptures and lay it at the foot of the cross. A verse that kept coming up yesterday was I Peter 5:7, "Casting ALL your cares, ALL your anxieties, ALL your worries, and ALL your concerns once and for all on Him, for He cares for you with deepest affection and watches over you carefully".
So, I choose to stand on these verses and trust God. I trust He is leading the Drs. and working through them, that He leads me with a peace and knowing. That even when I don't have all the answers, I have the knowledge that this is not too hard for God. He says He has a plan and its for good.
He loves us and in that love we can rest even in the midst of a storm.
Lord, I cast my burden upon you because you care for me! Thank you that you sustain and uphold me and this child. I choose to belive what You say, that is what matters! In Jesus' name, Amen.
"He will not fear bad news, his heart is steadfast, trusting confidently, relying on and believing in the Lord!"
