Thinking about suicide? I did. For nearly 20 years, on and off, I was plagued with suicidal thoughts. Several times, I decided to go through with it. I thought suicide was the perfect escape. The perfect way to end my troubles. The perfect answer. Suicide is NEVER the answer. Every once in a rare while, a suicidal thought pops into my mind when I’m totally overwhelmed, totally sad, or totally stressed out. But unlike in the years I thought suicide was the answer, I know better now. I didn’t know back then. I really thought suicide was the answer. In fact, at times, I thought it was the only answer. I was deceived, and ignorant, and that was a bad and deadly mix for someone as desperate as I was for the good part of two decades. I didn’t know the answer. Suicide is NEVER EVER the answer. But isn’t there an answer when you’re plagued like I was with suicidal thoughts and you can’t think of a single way out of your woes? YES! In fact, there is only ONE GUARANTEED FULLPROOF PERFECT ANSWER for those thinking about or even contemplating suicide as I did for so very long. You can get all the human help in the world if you’re having suicidal thoughts, and it’s absolutely totally and vitally important that you do get good and strong and healthy and positive serious Godly help from people who are loving and compassionate and caring and qualified to help you. But there is only ONE PERFECT ANSWER that will absolutely NEVER EVER FAIL for those contemplating suicide.
The Lord Jesus Christ.
No matter your challenges, issues, hurdles, obstacles, hurts, troubles, woes, emotional state, mental state, trials, tests, tribulations, failures, disappointments, tragedies, losses, symptoms, diagnosis, no matter what, if you turn away from the ways of this world, and place your trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, believing He died for you and your sins on the cross and was raised from the dead, if you genuinely believe He is Lord, and sincerely in faith submit your life to Him, devoting your heart and life to God and the Bible and living according to His ways, utterly dedicating yourself to the Lord and to the brand new life He desires for you, and, if you have already done this, and are still struggling, and you choose to pray and call on the name of the Lord, and cry out to Him, and dig deep into the Bible and learn to live by it, choosing to leave behind your sins and to live God’s way instead of yours, if you open your heart to God’s love for you and His plan for your life, if you pray to Him and listen for His voice and make sure what you hear is in line with the Bible, and you obey God, and you reach out to Christ followers to love and encourage and pray for you and teach you to follow Christ when and as the Lord leads you, you will have – and experience daily – THE ANSWER.
The Lord Jesus Christ. And belonging to and living for Him and knowing and experiencing His love and fellowship as Lord forever.
If you are contemplating suicide, please cry out to the Lord and give your life to Him. Surrender yourself to Him.
And please tell loving trustworthy people who can walk beside you and help you through until you get to the other side including people who love the Lord Jesus Christ and follow Him and can help you do the same. Make sure you tell others who can love and help you concerning your struggles. Most importantly, cry out to the Lord Jesus Christ!
The devil wants us to kill ourselves and keep us from having a beautiful forever relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t let the devil win.
Surrender your life totally to Jesus and enjoy His indescribably awesome and amazing unfathomable love and fellowship forever.
There is no guarantee you won’t have troubles to face. We all do. But all our troubles on earth are temporary, and getting to have an everlasting intimate relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord whose love we can’t even fathom in its awesomeness, nothing on this earth can possibly compare.
