Good morning, Precious Ones:
As a woman who was never able to carry, or birth, a child, one of my greatest joys is watching a woman bring life into the world.
I love watching the pregnancy process through each trimester. The glow a mother has as she imagines how her baby bump will look in the first trimester. Everyone is excited and praying that mom and baby stay healthy.
The second trimester mom is truly starting to “show” that she is carrying a life inside of her. She begins the process of nesting and preparing for baby’s arrival. There is a little discomfort and strange cravings begin to emerge. It is important that mom takes care of herself by eating healthy, taking the right vitamins and minerals, and following whatever orders the doctor gives.
The third trimester is here. Everything is getting uncomfortable and swollen and mom has aches in her feet, back, and shoulders. Toward the end of the third trimester she begins to have slight contractions. Is it time?!! Her water breaks, signalling that the time is at hand. Yes, it is time…
Mom pushes and screams. She has never experienced so much pain, fear, joy, and hope all at the same time. Then there is a holy hush as the doctor lay the beautiful and healthy baby directly on mom’s chest, skin to skin. The skin to skin time is the most precious and intimate time immediately after the child is born. The baby is comforted by mom’s warmth and her heartbeat.
I said all of that to say so it is also with the new season that God has been preparing for us. Spiritually, we are in the contraction phase of our third trimester. God is preparing us to meet our new season. Our water just broke!!!! The Living Water has given us a fresh anointing for the new season. The time is almost here…
Jesus is patting our brow and telling us to remember all that we prepared for including our breathing. We are experiencing joy, fear, hope, and happiness for this new season we have never seen. When the time is right God will let us know when it is time to push…
This new season will be what we have longed for, prayed for, cried for, and prepared for… We are getting ready!!!
Today’s worship video is almost 20 minutes long. I pray that you could get in a quiet place and allow the worship to flow through you. Don’t just listen, join in the worship. Allow the Holy Spirit to reveal what is being birthed in you. Thank you to Maverick City Music for such an amazing worship session. This video blessed me so much.
Please enjoy, “Getting Ready” by Maverick City Music.

Be blessed family,
