    Of course, I hate it when people are in so much pain or so depressed that they contemplate suicide. I, however, do not believe in suicide. I’ve always been taught (whether this right or wrong) that you must have faith in God to get you through whatever you are struggling with. Whether it be an illness, financial problems, abuse, etc. I’ve also been taught that if you commit suicide, you will burn in hell. Again, I don’t know whether this is right or wrong. Every religion interprets the bible differently. I, however, am not willing to take the chance. I had a brother that committed suicide almost 2 years ago. I knew he was depressed but, not that depressed to take his own life. This has left me with so many questions, why?, what did I miss?, what could I have done? I’m devastated, still. I can’t accept this but, I must. The bible tells me, and I quote, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” Phillipians 4:13. No one is promised a great life, a prosperous life, or an illness free life. Everything happens for a reason. Have I ever thought about suicide? Yes, I have thought about it. But, again, I cling to Jesus and he always pulls me through. I have 2 children, 3 grandchildren and I could not or would not put them through what my brother has put me through. Yes, I have bouts of depression but, stand strong and thank God every day for the many blessings that He has bestowed upon me. He didn’t have to give me children to love but, he did. I thank him for that. Not everyone has that opportunity. Do I condemn those who successfully committed suicide? No, but I pray for peace for their families and friends that they left behind, I pray for their souls that I am wrong, that they won’t go to hell. Do I condemn those who wish to commit suicide? No, I pray that they have a change of heart or find Jesus if they haven’t already done so. I’m not some crazy bible beating christian. But, I do cling to my Lord, Jesus Christ for strength. I’m not perfect by any means. I stumble, I fall, but I get back up. I’m human and I know the pain of losing loved ones. So, for anyone who reads this and is thinking about suicide, I pray that you reconsider. If not for you own eternal life, then to keep your family and friends from suffering and blaming themselves.

    You have the right perception Jackie. March 15th 2014 I had a dream about 4 people who committed suicide . I believe this dream was a warning from God to pray for people battling depression who may be contemplating suicide. Immediately after the dream God put people in my path who attempted suicide who I was able to council. Sad to say one of the men I prayed for since then hung himself. I can still sense the need to pray on this subject. God deals with me a lot through my dreams. My friend was just diagnosed with ms today. I pray the joy of the Lord continues to be his strength.
