    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...

    T But Not Lgb

    I get so annoyed when people thinks I must be gay just becasue I'm transgendered.  I wish people could understand that unlike being gay, but transgendered is not about physical attraction, now yes there are people out there who are trans and also are LGB, but not...

    I'm Having Trouble Finding A Church That Suits Me.

    I'm not out to my family yet but I have been going to churches in areas where no one knows me. So far I'm running into issues. I have never been kicked out of a church because of who I am. In fact, I have been welcomed in all of them, but the ones I agree with try to have...

    I am meeting with my pastor in a few minutes.

    I don't expect it to go well at all. I am ready to leave the church if it goes a I think it will. But hope and pray it won't . The old assume and prepare for the worst hope and pray for the best, at work here.

    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...

    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...

    Can't the Church Welcome Me

    I am 30 years old and after all these years I am finially accepting myself as a transgender person.  A big reason it took me so long to accept my transgender state is becasue the church has been my whole world. But they don't often tend to accept us transgender people...

    Yes I am both transgender woman

    and Christian. So with that said where do I go for support? Men's groups, I did that before I came to terms with who I am, and it was okay. It just was a little off and now I know why. But now knowing who and what I am I just can't see myself going to a men's group anymore...

    God'S Kingdom Is Diverse

    Last June, I came out to my church family as Gennee. It was one of the best events that happened to me. God created us as we are. His plans aren't ours and for some, they cannot grasp a hold of the fact that God's kingdom is rather diverse. Reading through scripture not all of...

    WOW!! Tonight's message at church was about

    taking risks and stepping out into the unknown and doing what God is asking you to do, totally I felt as if the message was meant just for me!! And I feel I really need to go to my pastor about tonight's message after hearing it.
