Tuesday Mornings, Proposition 8-From Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power

Welcome to Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power, and welcome back to our “Tuesday Mornings, Proposition 8” series. For those of you joining us for the first time, be sure and check out the previous blogs (We’re in our third month so I’m losing count!) so you don’t feel like you’re jumping in on the middle of a conversation. I truly welcome any comments you have on this and remember, no one’s got the gavel, so keep them clean and respectful. This blog isn’t trying to be critical, but to get us all thinking and re-evaluating our own actions and thoughts towards the homosexual. Grab your coffee, an open mind and heart, and come on in.

So last week we talked about the root of homosexuality, or one of them, which is confusion, especially in the area of being born “gay,” and we closed our coffee hour with a powerful truth: There still is no evidence of a “gay” gene and they won’t find one because if there was one, then homosexuality would be decreasing because homosexuals cannot procreate as heterosexuals and therefore they wouldn’t be passing down the gene.

Now I know it’s been a long time, actually a very long time since I’ve been a teen, but I still remember the feelings of being like a fish out of water, flopping around trying to find that pool of love and acceptance. It’s a horrible but real feeling and so today, I just want us to validate the truth: we have billions of teens flopping around out there looking for the safety and comfort of a pool of acceptance and love. And if they don’t find that pool now, they will wind up in quicksand, and their return will be slow and painful.

Many of them don’t understand why they feel what they feel. All they know is there is a hole and for countless reasons, to many to get into during our coffee hour this morning, they almost instinctively move to fill it, not really measuring with what or how.

There are many who just get sucked in by mere deception, and then their confusion starts, but for many, not all, but many, there is usually a reason for this confusion that drives their need.

My own confusion was rooted way, way back into my early childhood, and the more I tried to satisfy my confusion and fill my emptiness caused by several things, the emptier I became. The bummer was that almost everything I tried had not-so-positive effects that led me to my next mistake.

I have some words from Abba for our precious teens, and next week, we’ll look a little deeper into some causes for the confusing turn down the path of homosexuality.

My precious teen, you may not know me

but I know all there is to know about you

Even though I’m not someone that you can see

I watch over you from above and all that you do

I see you searching in all the wrong places

For love and acceptance, to just belong

You hide behind so many other faces

Pretending to be happy while feeling all wrong

Oh, if you would accept the plans I have for you

To build you up and help you prosper

Not to harm you, no, that’s not what I’ll do

I long to reconcile you to our Heavenly Father

You are not a mistake, nor were you born to be gay

Despite what everyone’s telling you

But I have for you a much better way

To have love and acceptance in all that you do

If you talk with me, I’ll be able to guide you

And I will be your encourager, your friend

This relationship will always take two,

My love will shelter you always; it has no end

Don’t base my reality on things you can see

Just please come and talk with me every day

Our relationship is what will set you free

Don’t follow the others as they go the wrong way

Share your struggles, your fears and dreams

Trust when my answer may be to wait

Even when I’m absent so it seems

My answer will never be too late

And soon you will come to know my ways

And they are definitely not of this place

My spirit will guide you through this maze

This dance called life till we’re face to face

I love you, my precious teen…

Dad

Have an amazing day, and for those of you who have a teen in your life, reach out and hug them, even if they pretend not to like it!
