The Anglican church has accepted gays but I have struggled with this all my life from when I was raped by other boys when I was 13, I have had two failed marriages and long for "The vision from above"that woman for man was intended, but all the time my gay side gets in the way. How do I break free.......please?

David,

You're a good person, no matter what you're struggles are. God knows your heart and loves you deeply. Don't let satan fool you into thinking otherwise. I have my own struggles with God's law of Chastity, as I think most here do. I know that He is well acquainted with our individual struggles and truly desires to change us, but we have to let him. For me, this has been extremely difficult, but I'm slowly seeing Him change me.

The first thing I did was promise God that I would never give up. I have pleaded and pleaded for His help to break free from my struggles, and he has guided me on the way and given me steps. I know I'm changing, but I'm not completely there yet. For me, this has been a slow process, similar to the verse in Isaiah 28:10: "...precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little..." I wish that for me that things would go more quickly too. I myself have gone through a failed marriage. But I'm learning to trust in the healing power of Jesus Christ, and that's a miracle.

David, I know you're a good man. Don't forget that. Hang in there. God loves you and He's on your side.

Sincerely,
Matthew

Hi David,

I suppose I could add to my own thoughts to this, but it is probably more important that I take the time to listen first. You mention being raped by other boys when you were 13. This had to be a terribly traumatic episode in your life. Have you sought any counseling for that?

David-I"m not gay-but I DO know there are some Christian ministries out there. I can't think of the one-but there is one founded by an ex gay person-=He has been delivered from it for several decades now! So-I am praying for you! I've enclosed a link that has other ministries as well- I am praying for you. http://www.freeministry.org/h/

On the light side - someone has just posted this on a choir website " not looking forward to choir practice when we will be singing: Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things : making thee young and lusty as an eagle. (Ps 103)"
