Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he shall direct your paths.
The first part of these verses was on a church billboard today. It encouraged me and brought to mind the rest. Worrying excessively will not help a situation. In fact, this one would even be hindered (adrenaline, ladies, avoid it).
This verse helped me to remember to trust.
With all my heart.
With all my desire that this baby be born immediately.
It helped to turn my day around from pointless stress.
Other things that helped:
Getting out of the house.
Watching a distracting movie
Not having internet beyond email all day (thankfully fixed now).
And the no internet issues caused us to spend a good three hours at barnes and noble.
In which time I read 2/3 of a book that was definitely enjoyable.
The book put me in a good mood. It wasn’t romance, it was life. But whenever I read about other people’s relationships or certain someones I think of my own and can’t help but realize how blessed I am and how absolutely wonderful he is.
(oh, and ladies, oxytocin, that’s exactly what you want when you’re a week overdue.)
To top it all off, that first hour we were at the bookstore I found a quiet area and walked and read. Sometime in that time the little guy dropped down lower (talk about a strange sensation) and I have quite lost my ability to bend well.
I am taking that as an encouraging point.
41 weeks, attempting trust and denying stress a position. Oh and walking as much as possible might be in the near future..
