Devotional - Friday, April 28, 2017 118/247

Today's Scripture: "For without cause they have hidden their net for me in a pit, which they have dug without cause for my life." Ps 35:7

5774. Who wants to get out of a hole they don't believe they're in? JG


See it.

Tight rights

Live it.

The knock at the door was a contractor who told me they were laying underground cable in the neighborhood. Explaining that it was necessary to dig and cover a trench in our backyard, I was asked to give them permission to do so. We walked to the backyard to see what he had in mind and I was told that our back neighbor failed to give them that consent. It seemed our yard was the only alternative and the fact we were not ATT customers had no bearing on the matter.

I didn't give consent right away, but searched the Internet for information on private property versus utility access rights. Then, sleeping on the issue, I was in my office the next day when noise and ground vibration startled me. I went outside to check it out and it turns out the men were digging the trench in my neighbor's yard. I have no clue if they had permission to do so, but probably acted knowing it's easier to ask forgiveness than permission. It's funny how a resolution can raise more questions than answers.

Pray it.

I trust where You take me, Lord, to keep me safe and aware of your presence.
