Let yourself be carried

My husband Laurenz and I were thrilled when we found out that we were expecting our second child. The only problem was that both of us had just started new jobs that required a lot of our time and energy. For the first time in our marriage, my husband was traveling most of the time. I began to feel like a single parent, caring for a house and a two-year-old while being pregnant.

At one point I came home from work worn out, wishing Laurenz were home to help. I'd been feeling pain from the weight of the baby. I was tired of being Mommy. But I realized that this wasn't how God would view my situation. I knew that my Father-Mother God didn't see any of Her children as being burdened or unhappy. That night, I opened my Bible and read a verse that wrapped me up in compassion and care: "I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you" (Isa. 46:4).
