Going Into Delivery!

I am getting ready to birth something amazing! What is it? I do not know yet, but God is taking me through a tough season in my life. I've gone through the phase of being bombarded with trials to now being faced with a little emptiness inside. However, along the way I am receiving so many blessings that seem to be steps to whatever it is God has for me. I know He is only preparing me to give birth to my destiny!

Have you ever dealt with a period in your life where it seemed like you were lost? Your future may have seemed so blurry and it made you feel confused about what your "next" is in life. Well, I know EXACTLY how you feel. I just graduated from college and even though I now have a plan (after going months without one), I still feel a bit uncertain. It is scary because I am an adult now and I am about to enter the real world...

Then, I remembered that I should not have any fear of the future if I just put my life in God's hands. It's a lot easier said than done, but it's something that we should all remind ourselves of daily. My close friends and I like to think of these periods of confusion and bewilderment as a pregnancy. We all know pregnancy is a beautiful thing, but it can sometimes be tough on the mother. Imagine dealing with months of swollen ankles, fatigue, constant hunger, and a kicking baby on top of that. (Jesus, be some birth control!) The period that I am experiencing sometimes causes me to feel anxious, scared, and lonely. However, just like pregnancy, the end result is the most beautiful thing ever!

So, I am about to go into delivery! It may take days, weeks, or even months for me to fully give birth to my destiny, but it will all be worthwhile. If you are facing a similar period in your life, please do not give up.

Do not allow this period to pull you back when its purpose is to push you forward. 

You may not see it now, but God is stirring up something great in your life, He just needs to know that you'll be completely ready for it. If you've seen a delivery, then you've seen the mother scream to the top of her lungs. Yet, once she sees her child, she somehow manages to smile and cry tears of joy. We can all do the same thing, not literally haha. Whenever our rough patch is over (no matter how tired we are), we will still manage to find joy in our new beginnings! Keep pushing!
