I remember loads of specific fears and anxieties, namely how would we affordcto relinquish a steady salary so that I could stay home and raise our baby. This wasn’t some passing worry; this was the reason we prolonged the “act” so long after we finally made the decision that we did indeed want to have a child.
“See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or
spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his glory was dressed like
one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is
here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more
clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, `What will we
eat?’ or `What will we drink?’ or `What will we wear?’ For the pagans run
after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.”
