Brenda Burton of Jacksonville, NC didnt spare any pains to contrast the type of woman she was before she met Jesus Christ. She told her story of transformation from a lost lesbian to a woman of God on a CBN feature. Story here and video here.
“At the age of three, I was molested by my female cousin,” Brenda said. “I was molested in college. I was raped in college. And I didn’t love me. I had vowed that I would never let a man touch me, that I would never open my heart to a man.”
She developed a tough personality and began to dress and act like a man.
“I used to go out there and I learned how to work on a car. Everything that boys would do, that’s what I wanted to do,” Brenda said. “I didn’t want to clean up. I didn’t learn makeup. I didn’t learn how to put makeup on. I didn’t know.”
In her early 20’s, Brenda began to desire women.
“I used to love women. I used to lust after them everyday, all day,” she said. “And I was like, ‘I was born this way.’”
Brenda had multiple partners. Eventually she settled down with a woman she thought she’d be with forever. But ultimately, her lover thought their relationship was wrong.
“She knew God, but she had walked away from God,” Brenda said. “And she had told me, she said, “God is never going to let me go. So she had come to the agreement – she said, ‘look, I’m going to have to get out of here. I’m going to have to leave, because God won’t let me go.’”
Its truly amazing how God will reach us even in the midst of our confusion. Like Brenda, I thought “settling down” with another man would bring me the peace and satisfaction I longed for. But it was just another rabbit hole.
For those who have once knew God, its in his hands to open the door for your escape from homosexual sin. When he does, do like Brenda, myself and countless others have done. Take what God offers and leave sin behind.
