Wasting our lives and glorifying God

Wasting our lives and glorifying God
Notice God's unutterable waste of saints, according to the judgment of the world. God plants His saints in the most useless places. We say - God intends me to be here because I am so useful. Jesus never estimated His life along the line of the greatest use. God puts His saints where they will glorify Him, and we are no judges at all of where that is. ~Oswald Chambers, My Utmost For His Highest, August 10

Empowered Birth Week, Day 2: Failure To Progress

It's a wonder to me that every woman doesn't fail to progress when you consider how many people are monitoring her!  It makes me twitchy just thinking about strangers standing around staring at me trying to birth a baby.  I mean, I've had close friends and family at births, but that's a far cry from orderlies, nurses, interns, and doctors whom I've never met.

Here's a brilliant short to inspire you banish "failure to progress" from your vocabulary!  I dare you to not laugh!

And now click over to Mama Birth for "Obstetric Lie #100--Failure to Progress."

And don't forget to link up on yesterday's post with your birth story and/or birth pictures!  Regardless of how your baby made his or her entrance, it's a powerful thing to grow a baby and to become a mother!  Celebrate Empowered Birth Week with me!

I love this :). I've had 2 hospital births and the 2nd one felt VERY much like that video. I actually think (after reading Ina May Gaskin's book) that I closed up some after checking in to the hospital and being examined by a very aggressive nurse.
