My midwife told me about this little video yesterday at my 22 week prenatal checkup. We talked awhile about the importance of worshipping while in labor. And she encouraged me to sing and worship the Lord when I am in labor, especially during the really hard parts (like transition). I am excited to see what God shows me this time around, and I am confident that I am going to experience Him in a new and powerful way as I bring my fifth child into the world this fall.
This video is of a woman in labor who is singing Psalm 23 with her husband playing the guitar. It is amazing. Lisa, my midwife, told me that the woman is in the transition phase of her labor. You can see her grimace a few times, but other than that, she seems completely focused and at peace. And can't you feel the presence of God in that room?!
Oh, God, that's my desire!!!
