Affirmations for the Christian Mother during Pregnancy, Childbirth and Postpartum
We could all use a little encouragement sometimes, especially during this very important time of our lives when everything seems so uncertain. For those of us who are followers of Christ, it is very apparent and very certain that the Lord made our bodies not only for birth, but also a source of perfect nourishment for our children during the first years of their life. It's so important for us to immerse ourselves in the word of God on a daily basis, to keep a strong faith and to gain a confidence in ourselves through His word that we won't find any other place.
My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes. Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret —it leads only to evil.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful,
I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven togehter in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!
So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all
He shall gently lead those that are with young.
The LORD will guide you always.
As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you.
"For you will nurse and be satisfied at her comforting breasts; you will drink deeply and delight in her overflowing abundance.”
For this is what the Lord says: “I will extend peace to her like a river, and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream; you will nurse and be carried on her arm and dandled on her knees. As a mother comforts her child, So will I comfort you.."
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
2 Corinthians 12:9
"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."
Children are a blessing from the Lord.
