    For The Transgendered A Christian Walk Can Sometimes Be Quite A Struggle.

    We can get lost in an uncaring church, but we can ask God with prayer to teach us in His ways. A portion of the 86th Psalm: Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. I will glorify your name forever...

    For most of my life, I have struggled with my

    identity as a transgender. It caused me to question God. What is His purpose for me? Why would he make me this way? I could only see it as a kind of curse. I felt betrayed because everyone I knew was "normal". Their bodies fit what they felt inside. Why didn't mine? I felt...

    Why?

    I am a Christian, but I'm also transgendered. I knew I was different long before I became a believer. It's not sin to be transgendered but it does beg the question why a God who loves us could let us be born like this. Despite this belief, it has caused me much pain and grief as...
