I believe pregnancy is all about surrender. It’s the most amazing message sent to moms on their pregnancy journey.
This beautiful message is sent to us to remind us that when God is in control, everything happens exactly according to His divine plan. So why do we try so hard to control it? Why do we spend so much time worrying when God is the one steering? If we take just a moment to look at pregnancy the way it is, it’s so obvious.
We have to surrender our bodies completely to this unborn child within us. We have to surrender the life we had before baby and prepare for a new one. We have to surrender to humbleness as there may actually be times we need to ask for help. We have to surrender to discomfort and change because daily our bodies, and our minds are changing. And most importantly we have to completely surrender all of it to God because pregnancy is a very uncontrollable experience!
It can be a very transformational time for most women if they are able to stop and listen to the messages God is saying:
“Surrender to me. Let go of all your worries, all your fears, and all your doubts. You are exactly where you need to be. You are safe. You are loved. I am in control.”
