Answered prayers.

After a year of waiting on the Lord to tell me which direction to head... He has answered me. I'm so excited.

I've written about how I've been struggling with homosexuality and understanding it. Well God told me to stop worrying about it and to simply tell those that are homosexuals or struggling, that He loves them. Very much. I was reminded of the scene in Milk where Sean Penn's character tells this boy who wants to kill himself that God loves him. It doesn't matter what his sexual orientation is, God still has love and grace for him.

This doesn't mean I'm supporting homosexuality and saying that God is now okay with it. No, the bible is very clear on the matter, but its also clear about God's love. It has no bounds. And my love shouldn't either. I feel called to do some type of ministry. I'm in the process of researching and just praying a lot. Please keep me in your prayers!

God = Love.

So focusing on telling people about God and his love is always an amazing thing! Keep pressing on.

What a wonderful discovery. :)

Yeah, we are working on trying to get people in our church to come to this understanding, too. It can only happen if we have a clear picture of our own sin, but it is so much more dang convenient to focus on others sin than our own.

Welcome to SITS!

That's great! So many people only focus on God's judgement and punishment rather than his love and deliverance which makes it hard for people who struggle with sin to even come to Him when that's what He wants (and what they/we need) the most. Good for you for getting that message out there!

Hi there!

God LOVES homosexuals and He loves all of His creation but I believe that homosexuality is identified as a sin in the Bible. What is important is to EMBRACE AND CLAIM the love that God has for you and love yourself just as much as God instructs you to!!

Love, love, love who God is showing you that you are.

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!
