Back to court today…


Well, I went back to court today.courtroom-thumb-450x360

It was a grueling process.

Strange too.

As I entered, the Judge and my lawyer

greeted me with a questioning look.  But,

I didn’t pay them much attention.


I did notice, however, that the Jury seemed to fully expect me there.

Honestly, though, they didn’t really seem all that interested in me.

I was surprised by that.    

I sat down and waited for the questioning to begin.  It almost seemed like I grilled myself the most, the prosecution was very sly in how he tried to trip me up and the jury had comments here and there.  My lawyer just stood there standing next to me while this went on.  I finally turned to Him and said, “What do you think?”  He  patiently answered, “Well, the Judge and I are wondering why you are back in here, back on the stand.  Don’t you remember that I stood up for you before?  How I advocated for you? Justice was served for all the crimes you had committed as well as for all the crimes that were to come.  Remember that I paid the fine because you couldn’t?  And the Judge declared you free?  We were wondering why you were walking back into the courtroom today, putting yourself on trial again, looking to the jury, hoping they’d think well of you.  Jill, the gavel has been dropped, gavel1-1024x1024once and for all.  Yes, you’ll have more crimes, sometimes the jury will even want to convict you, but the trial is over.  Remember?”

Just one question…Have you forgotten and put yourself back on the stand today?  Get outa there!

“…HE made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us ALL our transgressions, having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us and which was hostile to us; and HE has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.” Col. 2:13-14

  1. Thanks for your last couple of posts, Jill. It’s something I’ve been struggling with a lot lately.

    • Trisha, You are one of the most amazing women I know. We ALL deal with these things—even to an excruciating point. The enemy would have us believe it’s only us! IT NEVER IS!!!!
