“You cannot solve a problem with the same mind that created it.”
Most stressful week of my life is over.
Jury duty is not easy. Thinking you have made the right decision and having a reaction from either party not in one’s favor that showcases devastation breaks my heart.
During my time there, I thought about the terrible, “what if it was me?” and it made me realize I do not have immunity. Now, by the mercy and grace of God, I have been looked after, and I pray that nothing like this ever happens to me. That I am not on any side, as a juror, plaintiff, or defendant. Ever.
On the way home, I couldn’t help but to think if I made the right decision, why does it feel like a huge burden? Why does it feel like a mistake? The wonderful, quiet voice of God told me how the right thing doesn’t always make people happy. As a matter of fact, it will hurt people. You trust that making the right decision will bring you many virtues and good experiences.
I just pray for peace and godly guidance in my heart tonight.
