I find myself holding my breath. Sometimes it is literally hard to breathe when the anxiousness sets in. I think "if I can just make it through the first trimester than I can breathe easy". But then what if something happens later on in the pregnancy. I hold my breath some more. But even if I deliver a healthy baby we are not guaranteed forever. How long am I going to hold my breath, waiting for the bad news or living afraid of what may come? Why don't I let go now. Exhale. Breathe deep. Trusting the One who holds the future. My holding my breath does not change a thing.
Exhale. Breathe. It's going to be okay
