I really want to share this. It was such a powerful blog and I love everything about it. Many people here are not gay, but the point here is the same no matter what. God made us exactly how we are: whether that is gay or straight....with an overdrive or sexual underdrive. He made us with temper problems, sensitivity, stubborness, etc... whatever! He made us with 'strength's and 'weaknesses' that are perfectly unique to our needs to return to Him and have joy in this life. And when we realize that He gave us these things so we could be humble and so we would find Him then we realize that they weren't trials at all....but they were blessings. This is what I mean when I say I am grateful for my and my husbands addictions....they have taught me to be happy. This man and this blog talks about homosexuality, but it is all the same. He is happy and happier and stronger and more faithful because of his sexual orientation. What a gift. What a beautiful life. I just wanted to share!


I read this this morning, too    
"This really is an excellent blog post. Thank you for sharing it here.

When I read this blog this morning, I realized that we really are all fighting the same battle. We have a body and a spirit. Our body wants certain things, and our spirit wants other things. We are here to learn to control the bodies we have been given. We are here to learn to say, "Yes, I want that physical pleasure. I could have that. However, I want THIS spiritual joy more." That is called sacrifice.

We all need to learn to follow the laws of obedience and sacrifice. Of course obeying God and sacrificing our own physical desires, appetites, and passions is not easy. If it were easy, this would not be a test, and we would not grow the way we must grow to inherit God's kingdom."

"The Savior teaches that we will have tribulation in the world, but we should "be of good cheer" because He has "overcome the world". His Atonement reaches and is powerful enough not only to pay the price for sin but also to heal every mortal affliction… He knows of our anguish, and He is there for us. Like the good Samaritan in His parable, when He finds us wounded at the wayside, He binds up our wounds and cares for us. Brothers and sisters, the healing power of His Atonement is for you, for us, for all. "
