I was in the theater watching Toy Story 3 when I got this text from Mom:
Hey honey are you working? Can you call me when you have a minute?
This always makes me nervous. I asked what was wrong and she said:
Probably nothing. Just need to tell you about some test results. Very strong possibility that it’s nothing. I told Bart and wanted you to know.
I love you. :)
Things are getting better.
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.
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.
"However, the most common early life disappointments leading to homosexual desires is the result of peer rejections because of a boy’s poor eye-hand and athletic coordination. This is a very difficult weakness to have in a culture that is obsessed with successful athletic performance to the point where it is seen as the major measure of masculinity. Children who are not athletically coordinated are regularly the last to be chosen to join teams and are often the victims of rejection and ridicule. They are referred to regularly in a feminine manner through the use of such painful names as sissy, fairy, and queer. Also, they may be told that they run or act like a girl.
Proverbs 23:7 reads: “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” (I like this one!)
Just read this…ok? Please. I keep seeing the same story over and over…people who have been in the gay lifestyle for a long time, want out.
Ok, one more thing….we love you. We are here for you. We want to help you. You have the power to cast this out from you.
If you say you were born into this…well welcome to the club…we were all born in sin. It’s what we do with it that makes us Christians. Your sin is no worse then my many sins. Every day I need help with my sins. I can’t do it alone.
Fighting this will be awful and amazing. Lots of tears. Lots of pain. Lots of happiness. Lots of blessings.
