I asked God to straighten out my broken life

Return to Coming Out Gay
I am in my 50s and have been a lifelong Christian. Through my own fault, I had let my life flounder and got to the point where I prayed for God to take over my life and let His glory shine through me.
The truth of my life is that I am gay. When I was growing up I was picked on and beat up when I was in elementary school then demeaned when I was in junior high and high school. To survive I constructed an elaborate facade under which I hid my being gay. Until my prayer I knew I was different, I just didn't know how different.
My prayer has resulted in my Faith having grown significantly. Each day I can see God working in my life. As my Coming Out process marches on, I see the emergence of my gay self as God's work in my life.
Today I am not out except to a very few people. I am married and have been for about 20 years. I am just now nearing the time where I will come totally out. I am not quite there yet, but I know I won't have much further to go. I pray for God's help as this life changing decision nears. Isn't it amazing how God works in our world?!
