It's amazing how much my perspective changed once I began to feel a bit better. My mood shifted from anger, bitterness, and misery to delight, hope, and optimistic anticipation! Well, that and fear. I've been pregnant after multiple losses many times. I knew to expect a reasonable amount of anxiety. But if I'm being real here, which I can be to a fault, this is more than Reasonable Anxiety. History-based Fear spiraling into actual panic attacks. I hadn't had much experience with those before. Yeah, not fun.
A good excuse to lean on God daily! God is good all the time, in all things. Praise is always the right response. He is on my side and cares deeply for me. I refuse to let fear distort truth.
"But Jesus immediately said to them: 'Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid." -Matthew 14:27
