Sharing My Faith Sunday

Share My Faith Sunday

When I was first grappling with the idea that I might be gay, I worried so much. Would my friends still love me?Would my family accept me? What in the world would I tell my son? The one thing I never questioned was my faith.

I am a beloved child of God. I am exactly as God created me. He loves me and wants for me to be happy.My God is a compassionate, loving, and grace-granting God. Gay, straight, queer, black, white, brown, short, tall, fat, thin. All are good and beautiful in God's eyes. Our names are written on his heart.  He knew my soul before I was in my mother's womb. He loves me, scars and all.

Regardless of anything else.Exactly who you are is exactly how God loves you. And YOU are a beloved child of God.
