Lots of people are on that broad path to destruction now, & believing in the lie that abortion is in every circumstance a 'health care' and 'women's rights' issue.
The WHO & UN & other 'professionals' are who people are looking up to for direction.
One thing that really struck me was the lurching of the politicians from their previous pro-life positions to the opposite.
They got tossed back and forth because they are immature & not rooted in Christ.
Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.

Again I am reminded to focus on asking for mercy.You inspired me to look up the bible Merlorrich! I think it is a sign.
I found these ones.
He shot his arrows and scattered the enemy, with great bolts of lightning he routed them. Psalm 18:14
Do you know how God controls the storm and causes the lightning to flash from his clouds? Job 37:15
He replied, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. See, I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy. Nothing will harm you.…Luke 10:18-19
In relation to the fallen tree i found these ones:
Saints are described as being like trees:
To grant those who mourn in Zion, Giving them a garland instead of ashes, The oil of gladness instead of mourning, The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting So they will be called oaks of righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.
Trees as being illustrative of kings:
"All the trees of the field will know that I am the LORD; I bring down the high tree, exalt the low tree, dry up the green tree and make the dry tree flourish. I am the LORD; I have spoken, and I will perform it." Ezekiel 17:24
Trees in relation to evil:
Indeed the axe is already laid at the root of the trees; so every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire."
Anyway Merlorrich; I'll have to take a leaf out of your book and pray more for God's mercy for us all, myself included.
Haven't been to confession in a while!
