What does it mean?
When someone is trying to reverse his vehicle and uses his back to maybe nearly hit someone what do you say? "Driver pls o watch your back". You are trying to caution him right?
In general, what am I implying? Watch your back, watch what you do to people. Some people take advantage of people who may be their authority and trample upon them.
David was the youth leader. His dad and mum were the priests of the Church. Everyone loved the way David had chosen to follow the path of his parent unlike some kids of leaders who do not follow the right steps which their parents have trodden. And so he was the yardstick for every youth in the church. Every parent wants their children to be like David because of his good moral style.
He got a job and was doing well. Soon the church made him the youth coordinator to show the younger youth how to be good Christian and have a good career. Trust our mothers, they would want their children to go close and emulate such a lifestyle. Nanya was on such youths. She is tall and elegantly built, chocolate in complexion, and extremely pretty. She was one of the many female youths that flung around David. As a kid of 15yrs, she is bound to have some form of infatuation for him because of his position in life and the church.
Seeing this feeble mind having some of the feelings for him, he began to take advantage of her. He deflowered her promising her marriage. At first, she hadn't wanted to give to his luring but because of his position and he is every girl's dream. They kept their love affair simple and secretly.
Nanya soon gained admission and left home for school. She and David were still in touch.
All of a sudden, he stopped picking her calls neither does he return the calls. She began hearing some of the lists that David is about to be married to a Deacon's daughter who had studied abroad. She wanted to confirm it and called David but he ignored the call. She chose to drop a message with him on WhatsApp. And she typed, "I heard you are about getting married, is that true?" But David responded, "keep hearing to gossip".
Her hands that were trembling have now begun to be stable. She was now a bit relaxed, I mean she has built her world around David, every plans she makes about her life she had considered David. If he wasn't going to marry her, why lead her on and keep the promises of marriage. With all these in her mind, she dozed off.
A month later, she was already to her final exams, David sent her his wedding IV.
'Wow', she thought to herself, men are terrible. With the bitterness in her heart and eyes full of tears, she began to lay curses upon him. She was outrightly calling his name and cursing him.
She was back home finally from school, she had wanted to remain in school and stay away from the wedding but her mum kept disturbing her about coming home.
Nanya finally came home but had decided not to attend the wedding. Her mum was shocked because she knew they were both close but like a father and daughter relationship.
Nanya began blaming herself because she saw those signs in her dream on two occasions.
First, she dreamt that she wore her wedding garment and was waiting for me. Everyone was all seated in the church but he hasn't come but could see one of his friends. She kept on waiting and woke up from her sleep.
The second was that she came to a wedding party and she heard it was David and his bride. She wanted to confirm and began moving close to see for herself, and she woke up.
As she remembers this, she blamed herself for not listening to the dreams. She knew God saved her though that he was never hers. She dusts her buttocks and moved on with her life.
5yrs into his marriage, David's wife is yet to conceive but she is married with a son. She got married three years after David left her and she saw the reason God was preparing her for. The pain is no longer there, she has long since forgiven him, and times prays that his wife conceives.
We just need to be careful with the way we live our life else you hurt people and it comes back to haunt us.
I will be giving this in series, these life issues I saw happened so it's not a cooked story.
Let's be guided...the evil that men do, lives after them.
