The love comes from God: in Christ. God is love. In people we will find sinners who have not really been able to love. Some of them are even perps. Learning how to love is a journey which never gets completely fulfilled this side of eternity.

10 This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.
1 John 4:10 NLT Bible

nathan, i am sorry to see you suffering so much over this. in answer to your question,
What do I do with gay feelings?
, perhaps consider first dealing with the shame that causes you to think that sexual attractions are 'bad' in the first place. you can live in peace with yourself just as you are; give yourself permission to do so. sounds simple huh?'s not, but i have found accepting myself as i am is far easier row to hoe than trying to twist myself into something i believe i 'should' be in the i's of others. that's my take on it.

Passages in the Bible that continue to help me with my recovery from the effects of abuse:
- Jude 24 +25. Now unto Him who is able to keep you from falling...
- Ecclesiastes 4 The value of a friend
- "Take no thought of tomorrow - what troubles it may bring"
- "Ah Lord God, you who made the heavens, nothing is too difficult for You"
- "What Satan planned for evil, I permitted for good"

There are many verses that speak into individual situations that may be for a lifetime or a single hour or day. Whenever I start looking for a>
I endured all my yesterdays. I prevail in all of my todays. I exercise my right to be able to enjoy my tomorrows. I choose not to do it alone.

Greetings my fellow brothers/friends.

This is an interesting subject, it is a subject that has been in the very depths of my soul. Along with all the abuse memories that have surfaced in the last 6 months, I am still trying to find me, just who am I? Just what am I?

I have posted this same question in another post.

If I truly can't find me? Just how am I to find God?

I made a post a while back, in the spirituality site, called
"Trusting God No longer". As of this moment I still believe in that post.

I read where he is with us from what is posted above. But some of us still ask the question where was HE when WE needed Him? We have to have faith in Him, we have to believe in Him. But if I can't believe in myself, how can I Him? I'm still in the depths of hell.

Heal well my brothers/friends.

Pete (Irishmoose)

thank you.I too love God with all my heart. He has kept me alive and He is restoring my soul.

"Dear Lord Jesus,
we in this forum have been wounded
abused in our childhood by evil people
thank you we are able to support each other
and share insights
but many of us want more
some do not understand why you did not stop it
some of us just want answers, keys to recovery
healing of our souls, our broken hearts,
our sexuality and out horrid memories.
Please Jesus, release a wave of cleansing, of healing, of deliverance.
wash us
restore us
deliver us

show us the way out of our despair,
our patterns which hinder us
be our saviour please
