Digging Ditches By Shana Jay


                                             "If You Dig One Ditch You Better Dig Two"

It’s funny how I prepared myself for the ditch that was being dug for me. I knew a particular person had it out for me but I decided regardless of this person's actions I would continue to ride things out till the end. You see what I do know is what God has for me it is for me. Psalms 23:5 states clearly "Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies" and that was the position that I was in.
This person would smile in my face but his/her heart never lied. Their heart played a familiar tune by the Temptations "Smiling Faces" and indeed smiling faces tell lies and I got proof. I knew deep within that this person disliked me. I have also come to the conclusion that know matter how I present myself everybody will not be able to accept me or my strong personality and I'm okay with that.
 I'm not angry I grateful for the lesson God has taught me.  One thing that I do know is God will make my enemies my footstool and I believe that. This particular person will never be happy until he/she looks deep within and sincerely desires to change. Until then I will continue to pray for my enemies because I know it must be hard to wake up everyday miserable and full of grief. 
In conclusion, make sure that when you dig a ditch for someone else..... you better dig an even bigger one for yourself.  Even though my enemies meant to harm me by being vindictive it actually opened another door for better opportunities. Moreover, the trap was a setup to hinder me but it actually failed.

  1. Even though I walk in the valley of the shadow of death, I shall not fear no evil.....! That is a testimony that you are doing something right! People are jealous, envy and hateful of a person, because they wish their life was as wonderful as theirs.
