A few Sunday ago, while in the car Ellie said, “Mom! I love you. You are my good daughter!”
Even though I’m not her daughter, her words helped my heart. I needed to hear that… ALOT! I realized in that moment how I have recently felt so defeated in my life and while I know it’s only the season it’s been hard emotionally. The anxiety and depression hit hard with this pregnancy and I’m just not use to feeling it all at once. Don’t get me wrong. I’m so excited for Jay. There is a joy as we wait for his arrival. However, according to the doctor it’s completely normal to experience anxiety and sadness during pregnancy as well. I definitely didn’t expect it. In the car on Sunday I felt God remind me that I’m still His good daughter. There is still good in me. I might feel defeated in this season but I’m still His and He looks at me and he can see all the good. If you are having a defeated season, know that God loves you and He still can see all the good there is in you.
“For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” Zep 3:17 NLT
