Whatever You're Doing

There is a Sanctus Real song named, "Whatever You're Doing" (the video is below).

They question, "Am I doing everything to follow your will or just climbing aimlessly over these hills?...Show me what it is you want from me. I give everything; I surrender." I sense in the most clear way that is possible, that at this point in my life God is calling me to speak out about the wrongs that have been perpetuated against Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual and Transgendered folks. Did you know that every five hours an LGBT teen commits suicide? This is an outrage that I fear the Church (and me as a member and minister within the Church) has had a hand in facilitating.

There are folks who may chock up this latest "Soap Box" to my already liberal leanings. There are still others who may use this new thing that God is doing inside of  me to dismiss me altogether. That is honestly very scary. I am fearful to keep quiet and not get too "carried away" with this subject. After all, this whole thing started because of a new Talk Series for Awaken and after I get through delivering it I can forget about it and move on, right? The part of me that has been trained by ten years of ministry work inside the local church is screaming out, "Don't go too far off of the reservation; what will "they" (the seasoned Christians and Pastors) think.?" That side of me is begging, "How will you answer the critics who say that you are accepting of these abominations?" Without relenting is asks, "Are you saying that "they" (the gays) are right and the Church is wrong; haven't you read Romans 1?"

Honestly, I don't know the future and what may come from this. But this I know: I will surrender to what he is doing inside of me. I know this: I will not only fight the fights that I can win but also the fights that just need fighting. I know: Love covers a multitude of sins. I know: Jesus loves.

It is very hard to surrender to what I can't see, but I am giving in to something heavenly!

Pray for me; I'm scared...

I can't begin to tell you how absolutely huge the smile is on my face seeing this blog, Rev. For years and years and years I've seen our churches push out the LGBT population out of rejection and fear of the unknown.

THANK YOU for addressing it, albeit fearfully. :)
