Congratulations Are In Order! I'M EXPECTING

     “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” – IN THE SPIRIT

Yes, you heard me correctly – I’m expecting!  If my calculations serve me correctly, I should be welcoming my new blessing (s) to the world in about three months.  Now before any chatter begins concerning the What, Who, When, and Where, let me just clarify that I am expecting to give birth to something  great and beautiful, but IT’S ALL GOD and does not involve the birthing of a human being.  God recently revealed to me in my alone time with Him that the Body, Mind,  Hormonal and Life  changes that I have been experiencing over the past six months are all related to a Spiritual Pregnancy that he has imparted unto me.  What does that mean you ask?  Basically, when a woman becomes pregnant, her world is turned upside down and her body begins to do things that she cannot fully comprehend or explain. A few of the changes that may result from Natural Pregnancy include:

  • Swelling and discomfort of the hands, feet, etc.
  • Changes in skin color and/or the breaking out of the skin.
  • Aches and Pain all over the body.
  • Mood Changes:  Up’s and Downs; Happy and Sad.
  • Required Diet changes and CRAVINGS!

My particular experience has been causing me to experience ALL OF THE ABOVE in addition to some others which led me to the conclusion that these changes can also occur with a Spiritual Pregnancy!  But unlike the latter, when God impregnates you with a Purpose, Ministry, Promise, etc. there is so much more that you will have to be concerned with in order to reach a Full-Term birth.   For instance,

  • Diet Change: There will be some people, places, and things that you will have to surrender to God and/or walk away from.
  • Nourishing Your Spirit: You will need to immerse yourself in the word of God and your personal relationship with him in order to consistently remain on the path He has set.
  • Renew Your Mind: In order to stay focused and not give into  the Test, Trials, and Pain that may be going on in and around you, your mind needs to be clear and REMAIN in and on Spiritual Things. Anything else is harmful and can be detrimental to your seed.
  • TRUST GOD:  He knows what he is doing and it’s all for His glory. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight”- Proverbs 3:5-6.

Rejoice, Be Joyful, have Peace and glean Hope just from knowing that God is using you to birth a GREAT work in the earth. I am Humbled, Grateful, and counting down the days to when my new baby will arrive!  Ask any mother, the closer you get to delivery, the more anxious you become to return to your normal self and the same applies here!
