Conquering fear in pregnancy with the word of God

fearnot

Pregnancy is one of the most beautiful period in a woman’s life. As well as being beautiful it can also be scary for some so i just wanted to encourage you to trust in Yahweh the author and finisher of your faith (Hebrews12:2). Whether you are at the beginning or about to deliver i can guarantee the enemy will try to fling some type of untrue things in your mind but the word of the Living God is clear and tells us to have sound mind. For God did not give us a spirit of fear but of power love and o sound mind (2Timothy:7).

Ladies do not give fear room to grow but rather rejoice in the goodness of God. Rejoice in His creation and enjoy every moment of that precious baby being knitted together in your womb (Psalm139:13-14). God is truly beautiful and i discovered and felt it more than ever as my baby grew and begun to kick and even hiccup…yes babies hiccup in the womb as their lungs start to mature. I will never forget it when   felt my baby Grace hiccup, i was at work talking  when i got startled and she hiccuped. ..Anyway going back to the topic of fear, fear does not add anything good to you or your baby and there are countless tests showing babies in the womb reacting to stress. I never allowed fear to get in my way in my pregnancy and experienced zero stress because i ate,slept breathed the promises of God which is available to us through Jesus Christ. I read a wonderful book called ‘a supernatural child birth’ which helped me receive the knowledge that Jesus Christ died on he cross for me and by doing so redeemed me from the curse. We do not have to suffer with Eve’s curses but rather we can be filled with the peace of God because Jesus Christ has redeemed us. Now , i am not saying giving birth does not hurts because i would be lying….my my childbirth is the type of pain that i cannot find a word suitable enough to describe. Contractions can be so hard you may not be able to speak until it passes because it is really breath taking yet nothing beats the love and joy that overtakes your entire being once you hear your baby cry for the first time. Holding your baby in your arms will cause you to forget all the pain and a few months later you will not believe it when you tell yourself, ‘perhaps it is time to try again’.

mama outings: LoveJos Christmas carol taking place today in London

The LoveJos Christmas Carol is taking place this evening in London at St. John’s church stratford (see flyer for info). LoveJos is a charity which was set up in support of the persecuted Christians in Nigeria mainly those in the North. Please feel free to support the cause and  whether you are able to attend please try your best and dig deep in our pockets wink wink!! 

Christmas is supposed to be a joyous time of the year yet for so many it is usually marred with violence because some do note have the privilege to celebrate without fear of persecution. Now unless you have been living under a rock for the past few years you would have noticed churches being bombed or set on fire is becoming an everyday occurrence in various parts of the world but Christmas day is usually a target because that is when the Christians are set apart because of their celebrations. 

Please join and support the cause wherever you are and may God bless you richly Amen.
