10 Encouraging Verses for Labor and Delivery


 10 Encouraging Bible Verses for Labor and Delivery

As I come to the final weeks of this pregnancy I’m attempting to prepare myself physically, mentally and spiritually for labor. One of the things that I feel will help me is using scripture as a means of comfort and strength.

I have no idea when or how things will play out, but I do know that God is in control and I have to trust in His promises. 

 I put together this set of verses to review and meditate on as the time for labor draws near. I thought I would share them here just in case anyone else is looking for some encouragement in this area as well.
