Feelings change. It’s a fact of life. I remember hundreds of years ago, when I was a boy, I felt like I was in love with a girl. Later, I felt like I was in love with another girl. It happened several times. And it will probably happen to you several times, too. Feelings change. That’s why you shouldn’t depend on feelings for the important things in life. The most important thing in life is truth. There are some things that are just plain true. And it doesn’t matter how you feel about them. They’re still true. One big truth is that God makes boys and girls. If He makes you a boy, you’re a boy. If He makes you a girl, you’re a girl. And it will always be true…a girl is a girl and a boy is a boy. No matter how you feel about it. Wanna know why this is important? Keep reading…
If you’re a boy, and you feel like or wish you were a girl, you can make awful things happen in your body. The same is true for girls. It may sound weird, but it’s true. There are people who try to change from boy into girl or girl into boy, and they have to take drugs, take shots with needles, and even have operations. All those things hurt your body because it isn’t built to take that. And it hurts God’s feelings to see it happening. He knows how much they’re hurting themselves.
There’s a place in the Bible where it says you’re made in God’s image. And God doesn’t make mistakes. He never puts a girl in a boy’s body…or a boy in a girl’s body. He puts you right where you need to be. But if you don’t trust Him or love Him, you might believe just about anything bad somebody says about Him. You might even believe (or feel like) it’s OK to be whatever you want, boy OR girl. But it’s not. It hurts you. In fact, it can even take you somewhere you truly do not want to go.
So…how about this? How about you read more about what God says about you? You’ll find out how great He thinks you are. And if God thinks that about you…who cares what anyone else says? God says you’re one-of-a-kind. You’re special. And He even knows how many hairs on on your head. He wants you to live forever. There’s only one way to do that. Trust in His Son, Jesus. Jesus made you and He knows what’s best for you. And He made sure you could live with Him forever. And Jesus is the one who says a girl is a girl and a boy is a boy. That’s why you should trust Him…and not your feelings. He loves you, and that will never change. Do you love Him?
Here’s a rhyme to help you remember…
There’s a life inside of you, and it comes from God,
And He wants you to live and to always enjoy
And remember He made you the person you are,
And a girl is girl and a boy is a boy.
