A friend reminded me that this is the time of year that many will take their own lives, and so I am writing to you in desperation. Do not allow suicide to take your life. Do not let suicide score with your life. You are too special. I am writing to the souls who are feeling suicidal. Please don’t. Please don’t do it. The darkness crowding in on you does not have to determine your future, your destiny, or your end. It may not feel like it at the moment, but you do have the power to conquer that. You have the power to overcome it. Believe it! You can have victory over suicide. You don’t have to go beautiful one, precious soul. Stay with the rest of us. Beat suicide and let your colors overwhelm the darkness.
It may not feel like it, this very moment, but there is a precious reason why you exist. There is a valuable reason why you are here. There is a worthy reason for your presence on this Earth. Your life, no matter what has been done to you, no matter what your choices have been, and where they have led you, is not a mistake. Please wait. Hold on. Hang in there. I don’t know who you are, but we are fighting for your life, your spirit, your soul and your mind right now. Stay, don’t give suicide another life. There is help!
When Jesus saw her, he called her over and said to her, “Woman, you are freed from your disability.” Luke 13:12 (ESV)
It may be extremely difficult to see, feel and comprehend it right now, in your current state of loneliness, rejection and feeling defeated, but there still is a light in you, and there is still purpose residing within you, waiting for you to tap into it and take off.
Don’t lose your power and give in. Have the courage to live. Have the courage to thrive. See yourself in a different light. Give yourself another chance, and dare to believe that you are more beautiful than how you feel right now. Breathe. Fight. Live. And there is One who can help.
And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. –Matthew 9:35 (ESV)
Precious friend, wonderful soul, if death is going to come, it will come in its own time. Don’t give in to suicide, don’t succumb to it because you are feeling worthless, dark and depressed, and feeling like you can no longer go on. Reach deep for the light within you. Reach for God who created you with more strength, more power and more love than you can ever imagine!
I know that life can be brutal, I know that it can be unjust, it can be a nightmare, and people can make you feel like you are not worth the life that you have been given. BUT THAT IS A LIE. There is a quality about you, there is a uniqueness about you, there is something which only you have, to give to this world, so live and give the world your gift.
Let your colors shine in the darkness! Don’t allow the darkness to take away your colors. Stay alive and overwhelm the darkness. Do not let it overwhelm you. Choose life!
This is my comfort in my affliction, that your promise gives me life.
Psalm 119:50 (ESV)
Don’t give suicide another life. Not yours.
