Today is WORLD SUICIDE PREVENTION DAY. Christians are not immune from the feelings that everyone has. We do have a friend to lean on – Jesus. There are circumstances that seem overwhelming for all of us and everyone, even Christians, face challenges. Jesus loves us so much. Did you know He prays to the Father for us? That’s huge!
Even though I’ve been a Christian for over 40 years, there are still some rough patches in life. I can look back on those times and see how the Lord guided me through to the other side. I don’t see how things will work out, but my Savior is already there and He knows how it will all resolve.
If you are considering ending your life, let me tell you – God sees your struggle and if you will pray to Him, He will help you through your situation, believe me! God’s timing is not our timing. His timing is perfect – and we need to have faith and trust Him with our lives. We are not our own, but belong to God. It needs to be His decision to end our lives, not ours.
Every life is precious to God – yours and mine are no exception. If you need a friend today, please send me a friend request on facebook! Don’t go this life alone – please. Life is tough enough, but to cut yourself off from civilization is not the answer. Friend me – I’m a good listener.
I had dreams for my life too – they didn’t work out like I planned, but life is worth fighting for! Believe today that God has a plan for your life and trust Him to use it for His glory. Our Father knows the desires of your heart – and mine. He knows what we want, but more importantly, He knows what we need.
I pray that we will learn to listen more closely to His prompting as we go through life. Sometimes we just have to exercise our faith until we finally get through the dark passages and see the light of a new day. I am in the palm of God’s mighty hand – and so are you. ❤
