My heart is so vulnerable when I’m pregnant. My hormones are all over the place and I need a rock. I need a place where I can safely turn and find a solid, secure place. I’ve found some safety in my husband, but my heart is not designed to place my husband in the place that God should be. That’s actually idolatry and I don’t want to put my husband through that.
Find your solid place in God through the meditation of His Bible. Here’s 26 Pregnancy Bible Verses to soak yourself in when you, like me, need a strong tower.
