Am I?

As the birth of baby #5 approaches, I am growing ever-more excited, but also growing ever more curious of how adding a new little one to my current group of littles will go?

In-between my feelings of joy and eagerness, are spurts of questions that have been swirling around in my head...

Am I up for labor?
Am I ready for another baby?
Am I prepared for the changes another blessing will bring?
Am I strong enough to endure the nights of little sleep?
Am I taking enough vitamins and herbs?
Am I preparing my kids enough for the arrival of our new little one?
Am I ready for another homebirth?
Am I worrying too much?

And in the midst of all my "me-centered" questions...the Lord answers...
"I AM the I AM".  

So today I am feeling thankful that even when I feel like asking "Am I...?" I can KNOW that HE IS!

So true! I too have been worrying... but I'm worried about having only ONE! This was encouraging to me that even though you are super mom, you worry too :) Thanks Grace!

Reading Exodus 1-5 this morning - absolutely He is the I AM. How comforting isn't it?

(and from a purely mom point of view - that baby's coming whether you're ready or not :)
