The journey...

Life is in the journey, not the destination, so do what you can and take it one day at a time. Go slow, do it right, and make your changes permanent — then help out others who are where you were.

It's been exactly a week since the murder of abortion doctor George Tiller.

I've been kinda steering clear of the media coverage of this unfolding trial and the various reactions as it was affecting every aspect of my life. I spent the next few days at work randomly breaking out in tears as I heard various quotes that just broke my heart. I've heard those who proudly proclaim to be "Pro-LIFE" who found relief in the news of Tiller's death which is absolutely wrong. I've heard those on the Anti-Life (Pro-Choice) side who feel as the the nation should be grieved by the loss of a "courageous" man! That equally disheartens me because nothing about Tiller's butcher house was courageous.

ABORTION shouldn't even be a "religious" issue, it's a human rights issue! It's not about what walk of faith we may come from - IT'S MURDER!

The night it happened I went to bed and my stomach was physically sick because I was plagued with thoughts of Tiller standing before the judgement seat of Christ. I remember just clinching my eyes so tight and feeling shaken by the account of his life. God's word says that he would that ALL would be saved. As much as it's hard to grasp the thought of such a murderous man being changed - with God ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. He calls all men to repent! It wasn't a mans job to take Tiller out -

2 Corinthians 5:10 (KJV)
10For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

Hebrews 9:27 (KJV)
27And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Revelation 21:8 (KJV)
8But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Someone asked me, "Do you think he'll go to hell..." my response was simply, "Only God can answer that, he's the judge BUT i know he was a murderous man with the bloodshed of millions of innocent lives on his hands." He personally may not have taken the lives of millions but his political appearance and presence has encouraged others in the field and prompted the abortion of millions. *sigh* As it is, I'm not the judge so I'm not going to cast the judgement as strongly as I feel about it both personally and Biblically. Last night I cried as did I this morning just sickened over his standing before the throne AND over the vails that have covered the eyes of this nation. My heart aches for these babies and for the deceived. :(
