28 May Come Out. Come Home.
Amy’s story declares the freedom of love. This freedom liberates her from finding her identity in gender. This love flows straight from Jesus Himself.
Amy’s journey of lesbianism was one of confusion and uncertainty. Now, she lives a life of joy, courage and security in Christ. Amy was resigned to her life of homosexual activity but God freed her. She used to believe that her sexual tendencies would forever remain. But God lifted those inclinations and turned her heart to Him.
The church has so much to learn from her story. Christians need to realise that we are a broken people. We face challenges in our relationships and our journeys are fraught with insecurity, fear and hurt. It is certainly not all rainbows and unicorns. The world needs God’s grace and love.
Lastly, I would like to thank Amy for sharing her story. Thank you for coming out, and for coming home. Coming out is never easy, but coming home is worth it.
