I decided it was about time that I put together a collection of Bible verse to have with me when I'm at the hospital in labor. Even our birthing instructor said it was a good idea to have something like that on hand for encouragement.
These verses encouraged me even as I looked them up and gave me so much more confidence in preparing for labor and delivery! I hope they encourage you in the same way. God's word is so powerful, especially in those hard moments of life.
Listen to me...you whom I have upheld since you were conceived and have carried since your birth. Even to your old age and gray hair, I am He who will sustain you! I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
Jeremiah 1:5, 8
Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born I set you apart.
Do not be afraid...for I am with you...declares the Lord!
So do NOT fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the father.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow weary and tired, and young men stumble and fall. But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like Eagles; they will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not be faint.
I can do EVERYTHING through Him who gives me strength.
I know there are so many more verses that would be applicable. If you have one I didn't list, I would love for you to comment so I can add it to my note cards!
Colossians 3:17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Linking up with: Titus 2 Tuesday
