Today's post is another one I pulled out my butt this morning, just because I'm so upset.
Right or wrong, I'm going to speak my mind and I am going to defend and support those I love and care for. I believe it's the right thing to do!
Along with fostering, I also used to work with teens. Although I don't do that in any regular or official capacity, I do have a special connection with the teens in my life, and if they need me, I'm here to listen to them and support them in any way I can.
I was met by a teen who was feeling suicidal and needed to talk. Before I go further on that, yes - I know what to do in these instances & yes, I followed the proper protocol.
To continue, I listened to the fears of this person; How they had been beaten, verbally abused and made to feel worthless because of their life "choice."
Yes, this teen is gay.
I did everything I could to find ways to make this person feel better, to bring them up emotionally - to let them know they ARE good & God loves us all.
Firstly, I'm not gay. I'm a happily married heterosexual woman. I'm Christian. I go to church and I believe in what the Bible teaches.
I don't agree with fellow Christians using the Bible as a tool to slam others.
I think being LGBT
I made the "error" of openly showing my support to this child & my other friends/family on Facebook. I say "error", because I had no idea how much hate my post would insight - and in the name of God.
|Does this face ring any bells?|
Last I knew, none of us are perfect. We are ALL sinners & we are ALL going to have to face God when we die. Maybe God will be mad at me for defending "the homosexuals" OR maybe he will thank me for loving my brothers & sisters - regardless of who they are. I don't know and neither do you, until your time comes.
Some of you called open support "drama". Some of you have taken or will take offense to this postings. I can't help you there. I'm a strong minded, strong willed, loving, caring woman who wants to heal the world. I can't imagine that I am the one that God is shaking his finger at.
Besides, there may be a day where I'm defending YOUR honor.
I may not be perfect, but neither are you!
God's Love is for everyone! For you, for me - oh, and yes - even the LGBT community
Maybe next time when you go to pick up that next rock to throw at the "different" person - check yourself & see how many rocks are getting ready to head your way.
So, as I end this - let me ask you...
If you found out tomorrow that someone/anyone took their life as a result of your response to my post - how would you feel? Would you feel that you have completed God's mission? That you've helped to further God's kingdom? Would that be better for you?
Thank you for reading my
