I just found out that my mother is a lesbian. At the age of
12 years old I found out that my mother was a lesbian. It was very shocking to
find my mother sleeping with another woman. At an earlier age I was told by my uncleâ€™s
wife that my mother was special in that she had a small penis. Of course, at
that age I couldn't comprehend what that meant, I am sure my uncle's wife said
more things about my mother to describe her but I didn't understand because I
was too young.
My mother liked hanging out on
Years went by, at the age of 19, I was able to find a good
job. I could now move out and live on my own. Except, my mother got sick from
her ovaries. The doctors found cancer in her uterus and they had to perform
surgery on her. She told me that after the surgery, while she was laying on her
bed at the hospital, an evangelist came to visit her and tell her about Jesus.
It was during this time that she received Jesus as her savior. After accepting
Jesus into her heart, she promised not to go back to her lesbian ways. Itâ€™s
been almost 15 years now since she welcomed Jesus into her heart.
A lot of people may say that you are borne gay and you can
never be changed. But my mother is proof that with Jesus, anything is
possible. I thank Jesus for saving
my mother. While her path to salvation hasn't been a smooth one, she has
remained strong against the evil temptations. I am proud of her.
If you are a child of a gay parent, and you want your parent
to change because you know itâ€™s against the law of God, all I can suggest
is to pray for them to Jesus Christ.
You can also start by talking to your parent about how you feel. At
first it may be that they don't listen to you, but don't give up. Keep trying
and patient. You must also have tolerance. Show support and love your parents.
Unfortunately, it was too late for my mom to make it better for me. She is old
now and I know deep inside her she carries this wound of pain because of all
the pain she caused me when I was a child. If you are a parent, my suggestion
is to talk to your kids. Talk to them about you and why you do what you
do. Don't feel ashamed with your
kids, for it is better that they find out about being gay than finding out from
other lips. You must find courage to be honest and open about you. If you have
been hiding your feelings from your child itâ€™s probably because you don't
think what you are doing is right, confess to the Lord and ask him to come into
your heart and take all the evil feeling from you.
I donâ€™t know if it would be different if I was a girl instead of a boy. But I think itâ€™s more difficult for a boy to find that his mother is a lesbian than a girl to find out her mother is a lesbian. Just as a girl finding out her father is gay. I am not writing this short article to judge or criticize any one, but rather for the purpose of you learning from my experience.
