Last night while talking with a friend on the phone, I really felt that the Lord was urging me to tell him that he needed to stop focusing so intently on his same sex feelings-- his mind and heart was so occupied with his feelings that his view of God and himself was being severely skewed. I told him that his confusion, depression and anger were all stemming from the fact that homosexuality was on the big screen in his heart 24/7, not Jesus.
I wrote this blog 8 months ago...I just went back and read it for the first time since then. If there's one thing I've written these last 3 years that I think God truly inspired me to write, it's this. Replace "homosexuality" with whatever your burden is...the concept applies to all of us in Christ.
