Today I want to talk about suicide. If you are contemplating suicide from the pain you are suffering inside I want you to stop and just breathe for a moment a Though we are each different with individual issues we all can understand the suffering that we all encounter as we progress on with our lives.
I know exactly how you feel. I too suffered great lows in my life where I wondered why I continued to fight to stay alive. One answer is suicide and yes this will end all of the pain. The other though is to continue on in hopes that one day things will change. Jesus said in Matthew 9:12 that those people who are sick need a doctor. Jesus was speaking here about mental health also as those of us who are suicidal need to take the proper mental health medications prescribed by their mental health professional. And you are not alone in your feelings of suicide. Great people have wanted to kill themselves where Elijah wanted to die (1 Kings 19:4) and Job wanted to die (Job 7:16) and Jonah wanted to die (Jonah 4:8) and even Moses wanted to die (Numbers 11:15). We must remember that God is near to those that have a broken heart (Psalm 34:18) and God will comfort you with your anxiety (Psalm 94:19) as God is there to comfort us in all tribulation (II Corinthians 1:4) as He is aware of all of our afflictions and distress (Psalm 31:7).
In the end with my own personal battles I decided to accept Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and give my life to God. You see I have come to understand that this world is not right and it will never be. True happiness will come to all of us who are permitted to enter heaven to spend eternity with God and those that we love. Until then we can acquire a glimpse of the happiness of heaven by studying the Bible and in turn living by God’s principles as He has promised to bless us in this lifetime abundantly for our obedience to His ways as God explains in Deuteronomy 11:26-28. So things can change and they can begin to change today all you have to do is open the Bible and start reading. And to read more about the blessings God has in store for His children just read my latest book “The True Story of the Attempted Murder of Jesus Christ”.
