John 16:21 - A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world.
Giving Birth is not just for women. God has planted life in each and every one of us. He gives us purpose and would desire that we would all fulfill those purposes.
Years ago I learned that when Life hits us the hardest that is when purpose is about to give birth. It is in the days of constant labor pains that we must continue to take deep breaths and push.
I myself have been guilty of wanting to quit several things that became a bit too hard for me. However, because I chose to persevere my Victory has always been on the other end. Labor pains are intense and they are extremely painful. You can breathe so hard that you pass out or you can scream so loud that you can clear out an entire maternity ward. LOL... Nonetheless, the pain will exist while the head of the life inside is at a crowning position. That head will push its way through and now here come the shoulders. The arms, stomach and lower torso all come out. Just when you think that this the end, there is one last pain that comes with the placenta. Now you can take a deep breath and a sigh of relief is released.
Birthing is quite a serious endeavor and it requires, courage, strength, tenacity and the willingness to push forward. Imagine if a woman stopped midway during labor and delivery.
If you know that GOD HAS BIRTHED something in you. Persevere, don't quit because you do not see any results and do not quit because it gets a bit hard. Just take a deep breath and push it out one part at a time until it has all been revealed. And the placenta is just the extra push to remind you that God is standing right in front of you waiting to prove to you that you can do it!
Meditate on that!
