Could I Be Pregnant?

ANXIOUS-and-CANT-SLEEP

I’m anxious and I can’t’ sleep. It’s been several days. Four days to be exact. I am counting each day. I wake up every morning, run to the bathroom and hope to see my monthly visitor but once again…N O T H I N G.  My heart races. I am short of breath, and I am unable to sleep. 

Could I be pregnant? 

I am young and all these thoughts are running through my head. 

What if…

What if….

What if…

Who can I turn to? What do I do? 

This was my story and what felt like a nightmare.  How could this be?

We were careful, super careful, extra careful. 

Who can I trust during this very moment?  Luckily, I found a pregnancy center in my neighborhood. It was friendly, and I was able to share my vulnerable moments, thoughts, and fears.

We took a pregnancy test, and it was negative. I couldn’t believe my eyes.  All this fear and anxiety and it wasn’t even true.  I was nervous, my heart was palpitating, and I lost several nights of sleep. It was literally 4 days of feeling anxious and with out sleep.

The pregnancy center offered me a gift, gave me tight hug, discussed values in today’s world and shared this scripture:

Philippians 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

 I now carry this scripture in my backpack, I have it written down in my calendar and my journal. Prior to today, I had not read a scripture that was so perfectly fitting for my situation.

If you are saying in your head “I’m anxious and I can’t sleep” try using this scripture.
