In the forest, a pregnant Deer went near a flowing river in search of a good place to give birth, she found the area safe. Suddenly labor pain began!
At the same moment the dark cloud fall and the lighting strike caused fire in the forest, when the Deer turned left, it saw a hunter creeping with an arrow pointed towards it; when it turned right, the Deer saw a hungry lion coming towards it; in front of the Deer, there where the flowing river was.
What will this Deer that is in pain do?
Will she survive?
Will she give birth to the fawn (Young deers)?
Will the fawns survive?
Will the fire consume them?
Will she die from the hunter’s arrow?
Or will the hungry lion tear her to pieces?
The fire, the hunter, the lion and the river all surrounded her;
What will she do?
The Deer has nothing to do so it focused on giving birth to a new life.
This is what happened as the Deer gave birth to the fawn:
•The lightning strike and put darkness in the eyes of the hunter.
•He released the arrow while it missed the Deer and hit the hungry lion dead.
•It started to rain heavily and the forest fire went off totally.
•And the deer gave birth to a healthy fawn.
In life, there are times we are confronted with so many difficulties that confuse our mind and give us negative thoughts and impossibilities, some of the thoughts are so powerful that they overcome and overwhelm us. Maybe we can learn from the Pregnant Deer.
The only thing that was on the mind of the Deer at that time was to give birth to a baby. The rest wasn’t in her hands, so any action or reaction that would have changed her focus that moment would have resulted in death or disaster.
Ask Yourself, Where is your Focus?
Where’s your Faith or Hope?
In the midst of the storm, keep focus on your Creator always, he will never ever forsake or let you down. NEVER!
Remember, your Creator never make mistake(s), neither does He sleeps.
A strong person always keep their focus, even with tears running down their eyes, they always say I am OK with a smile.
Be strong and keep the faith.
