Case Closed~

There's the time in first grade when wanting what wasn't mine led me straight to the desk of the little girl in front of me and her pretty pink mirror and I stole.

There's the time in middle school when wanting to be like everyone else led me straight to the center of who I wasn't and I lied.

There's the time in high school when wanting to be independent and "right" led me straight into battles with my mother and I dishonored.

There's the time in my marriage when wanting to be ALL to my husband led me straight into disappointment and bitterness and I resented.

Then there's all the times in between...before and after.....

Stacks and stacks of sins.

High enough to reach Heaven.

But when they do, they don't mean a thing.

When Satan, my accuser,

gathers all of this evidence against me and hands it over to God,


He simply hands it all over to Jesus,


who,


takes one look at it and declares it to be:

NOT RELEVANT


You see.....

There's the time when

wanting to be forgiven of my sins,

to be clean,

and righteous,

and made whole,

led me straight to Jesus


and

I confessed (my sins),


and

I received (His mercy and grace),

and

I was declared:

                                                NOT GUILTY.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. ~ 1 John 1:9
