I will be here...

I was just made aware of these lyrics from a song from who knows where...? It really speaks to my battles with cancer and life at this moment. Check it out!

Caught in the downpour of a rain of stones
Felt like an exile in the world I had known
So I sought the shelter of my own soul and stayed inside
Words that were sharper than the winter wind
No longer had the power to pierce my skin
And they may not stop but I won`t take them in
And I won`t hide

I will be here
I will be strong
I`ll face my fears when the night is long
And still go on
I will be brave
I will be bold
Follow my faith to a higher road
And I`m not there yet
But I will be

I could choose to keep my feet upon the narrow path
And never cross the open field for that one snake in the grass
But I`d rather risk my heart than never get the chance
To find my way

I will be here
I will be strong
I`ll face my fears when the night is long
And still go on
I will be brave
I will be bold
Follow my faith to a higher road
And I`m not there yet
But I will be

I will be here
I will be strong
I`ll face my fears when the night is long
And still go on
I will be brave
I will be bold
Follow my faith to a higher road
And I`m not there yet
But I will be, yeah
I will be, oh yeah

I will be here
I will be strong
I`ll face my fears when the night is long
And still go on

Hi Markus,

I came across your website recently. I am an ex-LLCer, and I just have to commend you for your courage, and for the grace and dignity with which you have shown throughout this process. It's so hard to see your own life clearly when you have grown up the way we did. It sounds like you have made the choice to stay in the church, unless I'm reading into this incorrectly.

It cannot have been easy growing up. I'm sorry it's been so hard. Regardless of whether you stay or leave the church, I want to encourage you to continue to keep the dialogue open. The truth does not need to hide. You do not have to keep your issues and questions private to spare anyone embarrassment. If they are embarrassed, that is THEIR problem. You are who you are. I don't believe God makes "mistakes" and the reality is that gay people exist. Period. People who want to shut you down are afraid. I am not here to criticize the LLC or any of its members. I only want to give you my support and encouragement, for what it is worth.
