I am a reborn christian I do believe and read to your teachings. I am separated from my husband. I forgave him completely. There is no bitterness in me but, I do have the desire to end my live. I am tired I want to go home. Will I be forgiven if I take my life?
Your life is sacred to God. He is not through with you, yet; or He would have already taken you home. Your life is important to others, too.
The enemy will work on you to distort your perspective on life and damage your emotions. Do not let satan win this battle. The enemy wants you to think that you are all alone. You’re not. Jesus can handle this and He has friends who will walk with you.
All of us go through times of discouragement and depression. King David did. So did Moses. Elijah, too. And John the Baptist.
Sooo, how do you battle these things?
– Remember that God knows what you are feeling and what you are going through. Tell Him what you are feeling. He is always listening.
– Read Psalm 23 five times a day for an entire month. Read it when you first awake. Again after breakfast. At lunch. At supper. And the last thing you do before going to bed at night. Read it slowly each time and dwell on the words. Ask God to show you His love and His character through this Psalm.
– Get a copy of the book Happiness is a Choice by Minirth and Meier. This book is a terrific resource to help you battle situational depression. If you think you are clinically depressed please find a Christian medical professional for help. Focus on the Family has a network of Christian medical professionals across America that are reliable. To reach them call 1-800-232-6459).
– Walk across the street and find someone you can serve. You cannot help someone else without helping yourself.
– Eat well. Cut back on sugar and foods that easily convert to sugar in your body.
– Continue to attend worship services at your church and join a small group or Sunday School Class.
– Memorize Philippians 4:8; 13; and Isaiah 40:31.
My heart is with you!
