John McCain and His Pattern of Resurrection

First off I am in no way comparing John McCain to Jesus. Lately I have been waking up very discouraged about the campaign. Being a serious pro life advocate I cannot endorse Obama. I just don't see him as contributing to eliminating Roe V Wade or even creating any limitations. In fact it appears via the Freedom of Choice act he will eliminate any restrictions...So this morning I woke up with a strong positive feeling pertaining to McCain's victory tomorrow. If we follow his pattern of 'coming from behind'...and defying death and adversity we have to put our trust that his good fortune will stand. First while in the military he watched as 134 men were killed when a jet crashed into the carrier he was on...he was burned and scarred then narrowly missing death. He was deployed to Vietnam within days. Then while in Vietnam only 4 months after that incident his plane went down and as he was drowning at the bottom of a lake with broken arms he opened his inflatable vest with his teeth...as he surfaced he was taken as a prisoner of war. ...His wife and mother agreed that he was dead only to find out the GOOD NEWS that he was a prisoner of war instead...And then the doctors who took care of him thought he was within hours of death...he survived....after all of that he made it back to Washington after solitary confinement and years as a pow. This year during the primaries when Huckabee and Romney were considered the most likely victors he prevailed..Now he has been down in the polls...as he puts it "Obama is measuring the drapes"...he has been verbally crucified in the press and basically characterized in the worst way ever repeatedly by them....but somehow today as i look at how his life has evolved I can't help but think that tomorrow is going to be another bright day for John McCain. Why has God kept him alive for so long? Why has God resurrected him repeatedly? He has endured so much for this country...he is a good man that believes in the values of America and is proud of what it is and can be. I believe he has been uniquely and in a way unfortunately (through his suffering) qualified to run the country that he has fought for..And I also believe that God will have favor on his service and mercy on our country. When we see the McCain slogan COUNTRY FIRST....this is something he truly believes in and has lived out....McCain is destined for this position and I feel in my heart today that tomorrow is his victory....

I've been praying hard because the alternative to McCain is never having another election again. I can't picture the men pulling Obama's strings letting go of power once they get it. They've been lying in wait for far too long.

I agree...even if McCain wins there will still be massive work to do...
