The final trimester of pregnancy is an exciting time for Rica Peralejo as she looks forward to giving birth for the second time.

“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:18-19) . . This is something I am holding on to as I enter the last few days of my pregnancy and the first few days of the newborn stage, all over again. Because while I have the faith for a new season, there have been traumatic times in the past that could continue to scare me out of God’s wonderful plans for our family. So I know that His call for me at this time is to focus on the new thing that He is causing in our lives, while forgetting the things of old. . . A friend also gave me these verses for my birth and I shall be putting them up on my wall as I go through labor. Trusting that we can effectively fight every unhelpful memory with His Word, His Promise, His Vision.🙌🏻 . . It is Monday and let’s all look ahead to where He brings us, shall we? 🌿 . . #mamawonders 📸 @jamiemapaguphoto

“[Isaiah 43:18-19] is something I am holding on to as I enter the last few days of my pregnancy and the first few days of the newborn stage all over again,” Peralejo said.

“Because while I have faith for a new season, there have been traumatic times in the past that [will] continue to scare me out of God’s wonderful plans for our family,” the actress added.

“I know that His call for me at this time is to focus on the new thing that He is causing on our lives while forgetting the things of old,” she explained. “Trusting that we can effectively fight every unhelpful memory with His word, His promise [and] His vision.”
