It seems that is all you do when you go to court.
You sit and wait some more. Nothing like on TV.
The security was very tight in the courtroom yesterday, as it has been every month, since my husband's death threats against the first judge. I find it so comforting, that I wanted to go over to the court officers and hug them,"Thank you".
Yet, at the same time yesterday, a spirit of fear was forging around me. I had hired a new attorney and he was late. Very late. I didn't know if he was going to show or not; didn't know if I made a mistake in hiring him or not. Concern whirled around my head and stomach.
I walked out of the courtroom and called a Godly friend to pray for me. She did right then and there.
I started repeating to myself: I'm IN GOD. I'm IN GOD. I'm IN GOD, therefore I TRUST. I'm in God, therefore, I trust. I'm in God and I trust! Over and over I declared my stance. A blanket of peace slowly descended upon me until I was cocooned in by the very word of my testimony. Safe. Secure. In faith. In God. In trust.
It's only when we are in God, that we can fully trust Him.
My lawyer showed up very shortly thereafter. When it was all said and done, I walked out the door into the corridor with my head held high and a smile on my face. I was in God. I was in trust. I walked right past my husband and didn't even glance his way.
I'm in, he's out. And God is faithful to those in Him.
Because of Him and Unto Him (and In Him),
