I was blessed to grow up with a wonderful grandmother who took me to church, taught me to pray, and grounded me in the bible. It was through her influence that I learned about Jesus.
I have been in many difficult situations and Jesus was with me through them all. God has given me more to say about Him, and the desires He has for His Children than I can ever put on paper.

I have a friend who has been gay since he can remember, and
now is over 60 years old. Last year he gave his life to the Lord and what a
change God can make. He threw himself entirely into the church. Every meeting,
every function, he was there. Because of health and financial problems, he
moved in with a Christian relative and her husband and attended church with
Knowing his background, this lady decided to become the spiritual police. Every move and phone call was monitored. Instead of living in a loving Christian home, it became a jail cell, with her as warden. She tried to live his Christianity for him, and no one is called to do that. Paul says to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling. No one else can do it for us, we have to.
My friend was so suffocated and dictated to that he had to move out.
He was miserable. This lady never did and still doesn't realize what she did.
You cannot live someone else’s relationship with God for them. That is strictly
between them and God and He doesn't need your help. In fact, I believe He would
appreciate it if you would just be you and let Him be God.
My friend has moved to another state and I hesitate to ask him anything about his relationship with God because I don't want him to think I'm doing what she did. So, I am content with God's Word that says no one can take my friend out of His hand and He that began a good work in his life is faithful to complete it. My friend is working out his own relationship with God and that is the way God wants it. He is able.
