If you have ever been pregnant or close to someone who has then you know the anticipation that comes with pregnancy. We think of all the possibilities of what the baby will look like, what they will become and whether it’s a boy or girl. It’s a very exciting time for everyone involved.
What if we could walk with the same excitement of what we are carrying today. Each one of us are full of possibilities, dreams, potential, gifts and something to give. Yet, many of us walk along in life acting as if our womb is empty. We indulge in what we want not understanding it’s feeding what’s within us. Are we consuming things that will cause healthy growth or feeding something that will debilitate the dream within us? When we recognize that we are carrying something so precious we do everything to make sure we not only have a smooth delivery but a healthy strong baby. We eat better, we try to stay fit and read everything about the process! We need to have that same way of thinking when we carry out our dreams. You are pregnant with a promise and God intends to give you something that will bless you, your family and everyone connected to that dream.
Isaiah prophesied in Isaiah 7:14 that a young virgin would give birth to a son and call him Emmanuel, God is with us. I am sure this must’ve been the craziest prophecy since it didn’t even seem possible without a man. I am sure many young girls hoped they would be the special one. Maybe they grew up dreaming they would be the chosen girl as their parents shared the prophecy with them. Generation after generation waited for one young girl to give birth to their long awaited Messiah.
At this time only one young virgin would be chosen when today we are all called to take part. We each have been given something to carry and to carry to full term. We are challenged to give birth to something assigned to each one of us individually. It has our DNA on it and God has included us in the creation of something beautiful. It was beautifully designed around you and handcrafted to only operate through you.
So be intentional about what you are carrying on the inside of you. Get fit by renewing your mind with the word of God, feed your soul and read every resource concerning your dream. Feed your mind the knowledge needed. You are well able!
