My baby almost died…

There is nothing like pregnancy.  To be able to conceive life in your womb is a miracle in itself; there is a whole person inside of you! To carry, to protect, and to nurture this gift becomes priority.   Eating and getting the proper amount of rest is now a part of your life whether you want it to be or not. As the baby begins to grow, it becomes evident that your life will no longer be the same.

 

This same excitement and process happened with my dream, my baby.  It was an amazing privilege to be able to carry something so precious; a God-given gift.  I understood that not everyone was able to experience this assignment, so I was careful to protect and nurture it as it grew.  

 

As my due date [time of birthing] approached, I started to experience some complications.  Negativity, doubt and fear began to compromise what was originally planned to be a healthy delivery.  I could feel the pain of my uterus contracting, ready to push, but I just could not get past those feelings that seemed to overwhelm me. The coaches, mentors and speakers all seemed muffled as they were telling me to “Push”; they were drowned out by my own thoughts of insecurity telling me that I wasn’t ready and that maybe I should just abort.  

 

My baby almost died; had I given in to the mockery, that was screaming I wasn’t good enough, it would have. Instead, I took a deep breath, made some hard decisions and decided to push.  The crazy thing was, when it was time to push, no one had to be there to tell me; I just knew it was time.  

 

Don’t let your baby die.  Don’t allow your dream to be killed, stolen or destroyed.  You were designed to not just carry the dream, but to deliver and enjoy the fruit of it! This is your God-given destiny and purpose. What will you do about it?
