The First Post

This is my very first blog post of any kind. To be honest I never thought that I would ever have a blog. I have what I feel to be a very important message that I feel needs to be heard. My name is Justin Caldwell and I have strong homosexual attractions. My opinion about these attractions may not be popular with some who read this blog but they are mine and I hope you respect them. I just ask that you have an open mind and ponder what I have to say. Amid the many voices that tell me that "this is who you are", "you can not change" and "you should just except it", I find hope in and believe that I don't have to be gay.  I believe change is possible. You may call me crazy but I do believe there is hope and people can change. You should know up front that I am a religious person. As religious person I love and respect all regardless of their beliefs and choices. However, this doesn't change the fact that I believe homosexuality is against Gods commandments. Furthermore, if God has commanded us to do something He will provided for us a way to accomplish what he asks of us. (1 Corinthians 10:13) Now, just because a way is provided doesn't mean it will be easy. I know this to be true because He has provided the way for me. Not only has He provided the way but He has been with me every step. It has been a long hard journey but a journey worth taking.
