Suicide is no joke. And it’s not just that one legendary figure commits suicide and it’s on the map again. What about the nameless hundreds who go through the same amount of pain and suffering each day, and are so discouraged that they believe taking their lives is the most viable option?
It’s not easy. You can’t just say, “Get over it, it will be okay”. It takes one to know how much pain a person in depression goes through – the mental anguish and agony, the lack of hope.
Being a believer doesn’t make it all okay, and suddenly your whole day is smiles and rainbows. But as someone who has been there, I can tell you, when you have God on your side, you have this incredible amount of hope. It’s easy to get discouraged today, but this hope that God gives is no fantasy that is a wild goose chase. Because when you can’t trust anyone in the world, you can trust God. He doesn’t just promise, He delivers.
- I can guarantee you this, because you need to prepare yourself to open up to somebody here on earth. With God, you DO NOT need to prepare yourself. He wants you just as you are – scars, and all. He promises unconditional love, and that means He overlooks everything you have been through, and He wants you just as you are.
We are messengers sings this song “Point to You”, and he says:
I’m coming as I am
The only way I can
And you know what it’s like. But with God, the way you are – is perfect. He made you that way, after all.
- I can guarantee you this, because you just can’t explain what you’re feeling in its entirety to a person. They just wouldn’t understand unless they go through it themselves. But with God, there’s NOTHING to explain. He knows. He just knows, you don’t have to explain anything. He knows your innermost thoughts, and He’s been there too. At times like this, it gets really hard to pray, and He gets that too. Sometimes your just in His presence in tears, and He knows the meaning of each one, He understands the pain you’re going through. AND, He’s not judging you!
Jeremy Camp’s song “He Knows” always moves me:
How hard your fight has been
How deep the pain within
Wounds that no one else has seen
Hurts too much show
He knows every hurt and every sting,
He has walked the suffering
- I can guarantee you this, because I know it’s unfair and frustrating to speak to someone because deep inside you know they’re judging you. Sure, some people are sworn to secrecy, but can you really trust them? But with God, He DOESN’T judge you. God’s big on second chances and all that, but do you know what? When God forgives you, whatever it is, whatever you confide in Him, it’s buried deep under the ocean floor. Trust me; He’ll never bring that up again!
He’ll help you start anew, and He will NEVER look back. So you need to ask yourself, if God has forgotten it, who are you to bring it up again??
You don’t have to have to clean your act up before approaching God, because in case you didn’t know, He uses Broken Things! (Matthew West):
Now, I’m just a beggar in the presence of a King
I wish I could bring so much more
But if it’s true, You use broken things
Then here I am Lord, I’m all Yours.
- I can guarantee this, because the comfort the world gives you is next to nothing. But the comfort that God gives is out of this earth, literally! When God comforts you, you have a peace that passes all understanding! That means, you can’t explain that peace in any human terms. When God comforts You, just remember, The God that made the entire Universe, and all the galaxies, and all of space, has taken the time to care for you – a speck moving on a speck in a speck of a galaxy. Now, that’s something!
He’s asking you to come as you are, and join him, along with all the others, and BE FREE!:
Come to the table
Come join the sinners who have been redeemed
Take your place beside the Savior
Sit down and be set free
Come to the table
There’s no one unwelcome here
So that sin and shame that you brought with you
You can leave it at the door
[Come to the table >> Sidewalk Prophets]
Give God a chance, you won’t regret it. He’ll give you an undying hope that will get you out of a tough time. If this has spoken to you in any way, I would consider you watch the ‘Exit’ movie (Link below). It will help you. Please remember, you are special, made one-of-a-kind, and you are someone worth dying for! You are someone who deserves unconditional love, and God loves you so much! He loves you enough to die for you. There is hope in Him. So, please, Please give Him a chance.
