I love you. :)
Things are getting better.
I’m very happy for you! It makes me smile to see that you are so happy with your new found faith. But when you say things like, “I will not rest until you two turn your lives around” it scares me. If you want to keep pushing your religious beliefs on me, I will push my beliefs back on you. And I know that both of us are obviously set in our ways and it is not going to get us anywhere.
I know you could be sending me tons of stuff that you have found on the Internet……thank you for not doing that.
Please click on this link and read one person’s story. Just one more time….and I won’t send you anything else.
There is one word that I want to leave with you John, it is “Ask.” Ask Jesus if this is his plan for you, ask him if there is another way. Ask him into your heart. Ask Him to show you His Glory. Ask him to be with you every minute of every day. Ask him to show you His love.
You don’t have to read this, but maybe this one story will touch your heart like it did mine.
I know you aren’t mine….you are God’s and I am giving you over to him.
Pray the Lord’s Prayer every day….Put your name in it.
I love you.
Good morning, John. Mom and I are trying to decide which church to try this morning.
I’ve been meaning to follow up our walk around the lake with a note, so here it is. My belief that homosexuality is a sin is based on two things - one is that the Bible says it is wrong several times in both the old and the new testament, and we need to follow what the Bible says.
I’m not angry with you mom! Please don’t read my messages that way. That’s why I hate sending messages like this. You can never tell how the other person is talking. I’m not saying anything in anger. I do get frustrated sometimes, which I bet you probably understand.
Whenever I am nervous or anxious or worried about anything, I pray and God melts all my fear away. Every day he does this for me. Cast all your anxiety, your doubt, put it on him and you will have nothing to be afraid of. There are no monsters in the dark. Only God is there beside you.
Please don’t take a stand against us. Please soften your heart.
Really, this is not about how it makes me feel. Well, maybe it is……What it makes me feel, if you must know, is that we will lose you. You will lose yourself. If you really want to know how it feels to me, it feels very dark. You make me feel scared. You make me shake. Yes, I am shaking and my heart is pounding with fear.
When was I ever treated in this way? I have never felt insecure in my masculinity or even poor at sports. I just don’t really enjoy watching them on TV. I always played football with the neighborhood gang and was often among those picked first to play. My friends in elementary school were always the tough kids. You remember them. Why do you let these articles about gay people cloud your view of me?
