Recipe for a Happy Pregnancy: an anagram to encourage you
Trust in His provision: Psalm 84: 3 Even a sparrow has found a home/ And the swallow a nest for herself/Where she may have her young.
Rest: "He will gently lead those who are with young"(Isaiah 40:11). Put your feet up for 20 minutes each day.
Understand His hand at work: Though you cannot see this work, God can: "My frame was not hidden from you/ When I was made in secret..."(Psalm 139)
Trust through labor: It is God who opens the womb and brings the child forth to birth. Job 39:1 "The voice of the Lord causes the deer to give birth." How much more carefully will He watch over you.
Home is where He is: "Where can I go from your spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand will lead me. Your right hand will hold me fast"(Psalm 139 7-9).
