The reflections are mine.
I have a family member who lives in Wisconsin and has the most wonderful opportunities to photograph birds and nature of all sorts. Over the weekend she snapped this photo of a fawn that was born in a neighbors front lawn. After awhile the doe just up and left the fawn and it didn’t seem that she was coming back. So they called animal control and were told that this was quite normal, that the doe was most likely off at a distance somewhere and had her eye on her young one. They were told it was best to leave the fawn alone and just let nature take its course. This became quite concerning for my family member and her neighbors when several hours had passed and there was no sign of the mother deer. As they were thinking of intervening they were amazed to see that mother deer had in fact returned for her little one and all was well.
You know, at times I think that is the way it is with us in our situation’s and struggles. Maybe we can’t seem to see God at work, we feel like He has left us all alone. The reality is that all the time He is orchestrating things in the background. He is off at a distance where we don’t see, but he is working on our behalf and at the right time He will come in and we will will see that all is well. Is there a situation in your life where you don’t see God moving on your behalf? Don’t give up hope. He is working in the background and He will make Himself know in His perfect timing.
