My First encounter with a trans
GOD certainly works in amazing ways. I had no intentions going out my way to a bookstore to find a certain book I lost. It would have been just as easy and cheaper to go onto Amazon and reorder the book. But SOMETHING (yall know who that is) made me come all the way across the border to search for this book.
But sometimes it's not about you and what you have misplaced. It's about introducing a new way of living to someone else. Even when they don't know they need a change in direction.
I met a young lady who works in this bookstore that I had a pleasant interaction with. At some point, before leaving the store, I noticed she had on a badge that said "He/They". I was confused by her tag and started to walk away. But SOMETHING jerk me back and the next thing I knew, I heard myself asking her. "What does that mean - He/They?" She smiled at me with this big smile and explains the meaning and then said 'I'm a trans.' I was shocked because I wouldn't known if she didn't tell me. So, yall know what I did next right?
Now, I knew why I was so determined to come out my way to this particular bookstore. I wasn't looking for my book I lost. GOD has sent me out here on a mission. To share the gospel with this young lady. So, yes I did, I offered her my book at no cost.
I'm telling you. The situations, unexpected situations GOD has been placing me in within the LGBT community to speak HIS heart, HIS love for them, and HIS desire for them to be free. Free from a lifestyle that has gripped them not because that's who they are. But there is a trigger that they have not faced that has locked them into that life. GOD is swinging open the doors on both side (between the LGBT community and the church). Not to be combative but to show them GOD - an uncompromising GOD. And I am willing to step into that space, that world to grab hold, to stand in the gap, to pray, to walk with and through with anyone who wants to be set free. Praise Jah! May that young lady I met today be blessed. And may GOD begin to do a work in her. Amen.
