Dear Church

Dear church,

Thank you for showing me how messed up I was. I wouldn’t have realized that you messed me up if your doctrine didn’t tell me I was.

Thank you for showing me that I can achieve anything if I die to myself. The more I die to myself, the more I’m not accepted by you. It’s honorable.

Thank you for leaving me alone after two years of finding my path. I’m happy that I’ve found my way, and it would have never happened if it went for you.

Thank you for teaching me grace. When everyone was against me, I learned to accept that everyone is on a journey just like I am.

Thank you for leaving me alone. I’m in a healthy place now and it’s all because I’m a different person. I’m full of love and not fear. I’m full of life and not shame.

Thank you, dear church.
