God, I'm trying, but I don't know if I'm capable of this without You.
Today, a jury somehow found a woman not-guilty of murdering her innocent daughter. I have no idea how this fits into Your Plan, God. I have no idea how Your Justice for this sweet little girl can be appeased, but I am so angry... so filled with disgust and even hatred for what that sorry excuse for a person represents... I don't know if I can extend mercy. I don't know if I can extend love. I don't think I can. I'm too filled with evil thoughts.
Help me, God. I want to extend love and mercy, but I also don't want her to walk away unpunished! I don't want her to be an example to others that this deplorable behavior is not only tolerated, but EXCUSABLE in our court system! Please, God... You are wiser than I. You are holier than I. Your mercy, and Your love are infinitely greater than mine. They are also greater than my anger, hatred and malice. So please... drown out those evil feelings within me. Banish the demons that urge me to neglect my own sins to call her out for hers. Fill me with Your limitless mercy and love, and teach me to pray even for her.
May this twist in the road be part of Your Will, and may she repent while she still has time on Earth. May she turn towards You and live out the rest of her life as an example of Your Great Mercy and Love, and may she someday be united with You and that sweet, innocent little angel in Heaven.
