Love Notes #23
Dear Trans Youth:
Take it from this trans pastor: God loves you. God made you just as you are, and called your transness good. God has known exactly who you are since before you were born. You are a miracle and God delights in you.
I know it’s beyond hard out there. I know you are doing everything you can under the circumstances to live authentically as the person God created you to be. I know that there are forces of evil trying to keep you from all the things that will save your life: being called by your true name and pronouns at school; playing sports with the other girls; accessing puberty blockers and gender-affirming hormones.
So hear this: God loves you. This trans pastor loves you. You are not alone in this fight for our lives. Hang in there.
