IN THE FACE OF SUICIDE from Fred James's blog

A man who got fed up with life was about committing suicide in the forest when he heard another man's cry some distance away. Wondering who could be in such a forest at such a time, inquisitiveness made him to drop his ropes to go in search of him. When he found him, the man said to him, please, before you hang yourself, help me with the clothes you're putting on to cover my nakedness, I can't go back to the city this way. That was how he changed his mind and refrained from killing himself, seeing another person whose situation was worse than his.

In life, nothing is worth dying for. While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Rom.5:8). He died so you won't die. We live by His death. Suicide is a lie of the devil. It is a suggestion that is not your solution, but rather leads to eternal damnation. The act of killing oneself is highly unscriptural and prohibited by God.

Your thought pattern matters a great deal. As a man thinks in his heart, so is he (Prov.23:7). The human mind is so powerful. Whatever affects your mind, affects your life. To think death is to end up a dead man. When you think life, you'll live. No matter the challenges, think and speak positively.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue (Prov.18:21). Nothing is permitted to happen to you which was not first spoken. Words are spiritual but manifest in the physical. Jesus says, the words that I speak to you, they are spirit and they are life (John 6:63). Never dwell on the negative situation, always confess your expectations based on scriptures. There's hope for the living (Job 14:7, Eccl.9:4). Samson said, let me die with the Philistines, and he died (Judges 16:28-30). A robber on the cross said to Jesus, remember me in your kingdom, and he made it to Paradise that very day (Luke 23:39-43).

Never forget that God loves you passionately, and desires to have you spend eternity with Him. There's no hopelessness or helplessness with Him. He's the reason why we live. He's the God who can make the worst sinner to become the greatest preacher. Apostle Paul is an epitome. You can make it again. Life can be sweeter and better with Jesus. 

God's grace, mercy and deliverance power can find you. Mary Magdalene will tell you better (Mark 16:9). Jesus can save and lift you in life if only you give Him the opportunity. Do you have Him in your life already? If not, why delay? Now is the hour of salvation. He stands right at the door of your heart waiting to come in. There's so much to live for. You can't die now. God loves you.
