I Am Pregnant

This sentence is met with varying degree of reactions all over the world.
To some it is a dream come true, a long overdue answer to prayers, an icing over the cake called marriage and so on.
While to some, it is a mistake, a threat to a better future, a betrayal of trust, a thing to be gotten rid of (say no to abortions. A foetus is a life form not blood as some will argue).
Like it or not, we have all been pregnant at one time or the other in our lives. Some of us are even pregnant right this moment. Maybe not with a foetus, but with dreams, ideas, expectations, hope.

How many of us have really carried our pregnancies to term like a pregnant mother carries her baby for nine months? Some of us have aborted, miscarried or even had still births or premature babies.
What happened to that dream you didn't have to close your eyes to see? That idea you had that could make the world a little better? Did you abort it because you didn't think you were prepared to have it or did you miscarry it probably due to ignorance or neglect? Or maybe you had a premature baby that didn't meet up to your expectations at all? Or was it a still birth? Did your dream die at the point of delivery?

A mother who aborted, miscarried, had a premature or still birth doesn't simply say "oh well, at least I tried. I'm never trying to have a baby again". After the pain of losing a baby comes the hope that she will have another and she tries again.
Why don't you give it another shot? There are fewer joys than feeling a life growing within you.
That dream or idea is your key to leaving a mark on this earth. So nurture that baby inside you and feel it grow within you.
One of my favorite scriptures Habakkuk 2 vs 3 says:
"For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfilment], it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] forit, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day" - Amplified Bible.
