“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.” — 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
“Are you not getting tired?”
“Did you ever think of giving up?”
“Did you ever think about suicide?”
“Yes, I did.”
“Yes, I did.”
“Then why do you still carry on?”
“Simply because, Jesus already paid it all.”
“And what do you mean by that?”
“Love, it only means that by His wounds we have been healed; Jesus has died, and He has died for us. The stain of sin that marred our life has now been washed. He has paid all of our debts.”
“And so what do we do?
“We trust Him.”
Yes, let us trust him today, tomorrow and always;
Let us all forsake the foolish pursuits that are rapidly consuming our lives;
Let us stop condemning ourselves for our past sins;
Let us relinquish the shame we’ve harbored for so long;
Let us abandon our self-absorbed efforts to make ourselves worthy;
Let us turn from our sin; Let go and Let God.
There are 7 billion people on this planet and no matter how different we may be from one another we have one thing in common, fighting.
Consciously or unconsciously, our body, our soul and our mind are in a constant battle, a constant fight with the world.
There will come point in our lives, we will experience entering in that dark place. The important thing is finding the way out, and the light behind the shadows.
So before you decide to end it; Think of how God offered you that most precious gift a mankind could ever receive, a life. And then you’ll just gonna end it?
He had never given up on us so how can we just give up just like that? Let us pause a moment and consider the value of the blessing of life.
To those who are dealing with any kind of pain, anxieties and depression; 1 Peter 5:7 is for you.
And one last thing, don’t you ever be afraid to ask for help. Pray, it works! He is always there, always listens, and always provides. Know that you are loved from the very beginning. Head’s up and keep fighting brave soul!
Heal our hearts, oh loving Lord. Keep us away from our selfish desires. Make us an instrument of your unfailing love.
In Jesus name, Amen.
