The other day I was chatting with my husband and we were both carrying a lot of emotions and feelings. He expressed to me that I haven’t been myself lately. Then he said something to me that hit hard.
“I want my wife back.”
In that moment I broke down because deep down I knew I didn’t feel like myself. I could feel it. And I knew it was P O S T P A R T U M A N X I E T Y.
Since having my daughter, I had felt this weight of constant worry, fear, and anxiety over her well-being. And I don’t know why. I didn’t struggle with this as much with my firstborn, but it felt good to even “diagnose” what it was I was feeling.
My husband and I were able to talk it through and now this leads me to one of my prayers for 2023- release and freedom from anxiety.
I realized and have set my mind to reading more scripture and really letting it sink into my heart and mind.
A few days ago I posted a video on YouTube all on this topic and opening up about it in more detail. You can watch it here.
A few scripture verses I share in that video really resonated with me and they’re all about the peace of God. Letting that peace transcend everything else. Not allowing the world to set your peace because that is UNWAVERING.
I don’t have to let the enemy steal my joy and make me worry about every little thing. I DON’T HAVE TO!! My God has already won!! I need to rest assured that God has everything about my daughter in His hands.
Whatever it is that you’re holding onto that God has already freed you from; walk in that freedom today!
It feels so much lighter.
