Deception: Many lesbians think: “I was told that I was born this way or God made me this way.”
|Truth to Say: Lesbianism is a counterfeit coping mechanism – a false way to love and nurture oneself. Despite the media’s spin, scientifically there is no evidence for a gay gene. Actually, psychologists say that your sexual identity is socially developed. Why would God create something that He calls an abomination? (Gen. 19:1-11)|
|Deception: Some lesbians think: “I think my mom and dad wanted a boy, so I did my best to fulfill that role and became a tomboy…I wanted to be loved and accepted.” Or: “My mother did not meet my emotional needs.” Or ”I was sexually abused.”||Truth to Say: Psalm 139:13 says: “For You (God) formed my inward parts; …I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works…” Rejecting your sexual identity is rejecting whom God made you to be. Change begins with receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and becoming rooted and grounded in God’s love (Eph. 3:17-18). God wants to uproot the lies that were planted in your heart when you were abused.|
Deception: Some think, ”I did not like my mother. My dad abused her and I did not want to be like her. I see women as weak and vulnerable. Acting like a man makes me feel more protected and strong and confident and powerful”
|Truth to Say: Acting like a man will not make you any stronger or protect you more. Men and women both need divine protection. Meditate on Psalm 91. The Bible says to men and women: “I can do all thing through Christ Who strengthens me.” Receiving comfort and strength from God is what will make you strong, courageous and confident. Isaiah 40:31 says: “Those that wait upon the Lord will renew their strength…” Psalm 18:2 says “the Lord is My Rock” God wants you to be a confident woman through Christ.|
|I cannot bear the thought of breaking up with my partner in order to follow Christ. That would break my heart.||(This is Susan Mulford speaking) I know that breaking up with someone you love is not easy. I can relate to that because I have had several broken hearts before. The best way to get over someone, I have found, is to think about the negative aspects about them and their character flaws every time you are missing them. For e.g., recently there was this guy that I was starting to really like who was a worship leader playing the keyboards at a church nearby. I really liked him until on the third date I found out that he had been married and divorced 4 times and had 4 kids as well!. Not ever being married before, I did not want to be anyone's 5th wife, nor a step-mom of four kids, even if he did not have custody, so I memorized the names of his 4 ex-wives (Cami, Emma, Vicky and Denise) and said them to myself every time I missed him or remembered the good times we had. This helped me get over him. Then I kept believing that Mr. Right would come into my life standing on Isaiah 34:16! Singing and worshipping God and receiving His love through His manifest presence comforts me as well when I am feeling heart broken. If you are still feeling bad, eating chocolate or your favorite ice cream helps! (Just remember to work it off through exercise!) Also I encourage you to be thankful you are not a former Muslim coming to Christ. They usually get totally disowned by their family for choosing to become a Christian. It is a huge sacrifice for them, but they still follow Christ because they know that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life. He is the way to heaven. If they did not make the huge sacrifice, they would go to hell. It is the same for you. In order to go to heaven, you must surrender your life to God and receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Eternity in heaven is well worth every sacrifice you will make and well worth every broken heart you will have.|
Ways Overcome Lesbianism and Be Set Free:
- Forgive your parents who you perceived rejected you for not being a boy and/or forgive those who abused you. Receive the love and acceptance of God through anointed praise and worship.
- Do not share your attraction with the woman to whom you are attracted. Some reasons why: 1.Rom. 13:14 says to “make no provision for the flesh.” If you tell her, you are forging the possibility of a sexual relationship with her. 2. Attractions come and go. Feelings die down as you truly get to know a person.
- The “object of your affection” may treat you differently or distance themselves from you or cut you off completely.
- Avoid places that can lead directly into sin: lesbian or gay bars or bookstores, parties, and other such places.
- Renew your mind with the Word of God. 2 Cor. 10:5 says you must “take captive every thought,” every imagination and fantasy and make it obedient to Christ. Memorize God’s word and say it out loud. Think on Phil. 4:6-8. Bond with & depend on the Lord.
- Have Healthy Female Friendships. At first, avoid having a “best friend.” Straight women often admire and complement other straight women freely and it is not a sexual attraction. Wearing makeup and feminine looking clothes will help you feel feminine and will help “set you free” to embrace your womanhood identity. Then slowly “the right feelings” will follow.
