During the pregnancy process, there comes a time in the final weeks, that much of the excitement wears off. Your sensitivity, love, & affection for the baby has not changed, however your desire to complete the process grows. The aggravation of the final stages stems from the constant uncomfortable feeling even when resting. Your wandering mind tries to consider anything you may have forgotten. All of the pregnant identifiers are present, yet still no little one. You want to see the finished work. You want to see what precious little monster has been kicking you for the last 9 months. You want to see what your DNA attached to his DNA looks like. You want to show another piece of you to the world! What a feeling!
These same feelings are experienced when you are in the final stages of producing the baby, the gift, the seed of purpose God has placed within you. You become frustrated with the process, frustrated with waiting. You too desire to see the finished work. You want to see what precious little monster has been kicking you. You want to see what your DNA attached to His DNA looks like. You want to show another piece of you to the world.
What becomes increasingly important during these weeks of frustration, is the reminder of your role in protecting the work that has started in you. High stress and impatience can force you into an early delivery, which could prove unhealthy for both the baby and the mother. You open yourself and your seed to harmful diseases that could hinder or prevent growth. You must stay the course. You must get to the finish line. Allow your seed to reach it's full potential and allow yourself time to make further preparation to receive the gift. Your preparation may not be in physical or financial gains, it may be in the mental and emotional readiness to properly cultivate and develop your seed once birthed.
If you're anything like me, patiently awaiting the purpose within you to be birthed, is not always easy. I've cried many of nights waiting to get this first work to you. Wondering if I had what it takes. Attempting to dot every 'i' and cross every 't'. Waiting on just the right crossing of opportunity and provision. But I can assure you, there was a peace that came when I stopped allowing the frustration of the process to overwhelm me. My daily prayer became, God give me the strength needed THIS day to complete the task ahead of me. So I'll pray the same prayer of strength and patience for you. If you find yourself pregnant and ready to just 'get it out of you', be patient and allow yourself to push out your dream, your purpose, your baby at it's full potential.
