Casey Anthony is a Christian

I have recently become aquainted with the Casey Anthony trial going on in Orlando, Florida.  It is definitely hard not to judge this young woman as guilty.  Most likely she probably is.  Many want her to receive the death penalty.   Stones are thrown at her and words of venom.  Part of me though has not wanted to say such things but only pray for her salvation. my surprise she is a CHRISTIAN.  A lover of God and knows the word.  How do I know her letters on this website...

I immediately did a google search to find out if anyone else in cyber space has mentioned that most of her letters talk of God and her relationship with him.  These particular letters were written between Casey and another inmate.  She speaks of bible studies, calling God as Daddy, quoting scripture and encouraging her fellow inmate friend to stay strong in the Lord and never give up hope.

Always remember that God is your strength, your Father, and your Redeemer.  He is always  with you, and will continue to make you stronger, especially in your moments of weakness.  He loves you, and will never forsake you. 

She also writes about Caylee and knowing she is in a better place.  She also writes of making sure that her brother and father are both saved.  She feels confident her mom is on the right path and she gives God the Glory for this.  

She also writes: 

I never imagined myself a warrior before, although I know I'lve always been a fighter.  What a feeling and a responsibility, to know that we're part of God's army and that in the end we are victorious!  What a feeling of satisfaction.  

She writes of her favorite scripture Matthew 6:22 and how people have commented on a glow she has.  

The reason for this post is to share and encourage with all out there who know God to be praying for this young woman and not throwing stones.  Yes... Maybe she did murder her child (no excuse!)  Maybe it was truly an accident and fear kept her from telling the truth.  Maybe the baby did drown in the pool.  Maybe Casey has serious mental problems.  But this I do know ( maybe she might also be lying) that reading between the lines and reading these letters you will most certainly know she loves God.  

She is still a baby in God's kingdom.  Most certainly received her Savior in jail thanks to other inmates and her Chaplain.   Also, what brings a somewhat joy and sense of peace in my heart about this young woman is knowing that Caylee will be waiting for her with her arms wide open with the Lord right there if Casey does receive the death penalty.

My thoughts and opinions for her have changed and I see her in a totally different light.  Yes, she needs to pay for the crime if she is guilty but as a Christ follower I forgive her stupid actions.  She is no longer the "old" but is a NEW CREATION in Christ.  The world cannot comprehend this reality of God's Kingdome but those who are God's Children know that if she is truly saved she will meet her Savior with open arms.

My prayer is that she will get to know the Lord the more and that the truth will prevail!!
