20 Mar 14 Verses for Your Two Week Wait
If you aren’t familiar, the “two week wait” is a phrase used by those trying to conceive. The two week wait is the two weeks in between when conception can occur and when a woman finds out if she is pregnant or not.
While the two weeks for some women are met with anxiety, fear and impatience, it doesn’t have to be! The two week wait, and really every day of life, can and should actually be filled with expectation, hope, peace and joy!
Because I often hear woman talk about the dreaded two week wait I pulled together 14 scriptures that will help remind any woman trying to conceive of what God’s Word says. I probably could have pulled 1,000’s of verses as scripture is so full of life and truth, but for today’s post I stuck with 14. I also added declarations so you can personalize his Word and speak it over your situation and body. In addition, I created a printable for you, which you can print off from here: 14 Verses for Your Two Week Wait. I didn’t use any healing verses in this post, so I encourage you to print off these and declare them as well.
