Birth is hard. Birth is intense. Birth can be long, but birth is a perfect picture of our need for God. God wants us to surrender to Him, He wants us to die to ourselves and rest in His peace. This is not only true for our daily lives but also so very true for our birthing time.
I have yet to find anywhere in Scripture that says that children are a curse or a burden. I will say however, that having two young children is a lot of work and responsibility. Some days I go to bed in tears and exhausted. This is not because I shouldn’t of had them, but rather it is because I am trying to parent them by my strength and not the Lord’s strength.
