Feeling isolated as an LGBTQ+ Christian?
Hello, Grace here.
I made the video story which you can watch on this page. Before I say anything else, let me start with this. God loves you; God adores you, God wants good things for you and God is with you always. I’m sorry if anyone has ever told you differently to this, they were wrong.
You are not a mistake or a mishap, your gender identity and sexuality are an expression of the image of God, how amazing is that?
I’m sorry if the Church has caused you pain, it breaks my heart that the church can cause such damage. Please know that you don’t deserve it and it is not something you have to put up with. Know that you are not alone, there are people just like you.
If you are able to, I encourage you to find community, there are several ways of doing that, whether online or in person. It is so healing to meet other LGBTQ+ Christians.
If you are local we would love to welcome you. I would also encourage you to remove yourself from toxic environments, you deserve to feel safe and should not have to defend your existence on a regular basis. I know this is not a simple thing to do, but we are praying that God gives you a way out.
