I Didn't Kill Myself, You Shouldn't Either.
I got the tattoo for myself and for a friend of mine to show I supported her.
Despite all the popular theories propagated today, You were made in the Imago Dei. (Genesis 1:27) Think about that for a second. You were made in the image of the God who created everything. (Colossians 1:16, John 1:3)
I didn't find Christ till 2 years later, but he was there before I knew he was. Through his divine plan I received medicine that stabilized me.
I didn't commit suicide, you shouldn't either. I know you may think it's the best decision now, but it is not. Not only are you hurting yourself, when you do this you hurt others. Even if you have no one in your life, there is a God who loves sinners. (Romans 5:8, John 3:16) I urge you to pray to him, he will not cast you away.
All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out. (John 6:37 ESV)He is here for the heavy laden (Matthew 11:28) and he can be your place of refuge
The also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. (Psalm 9:9 KJV)I don't know you, but I know your pain. Seek the Lord, call a suicide hotline, talk to a close family member, whatever you're most comfortable with, you can even message me here if you want. I'd gladly talk to you. I care for your well-being and your soul, but more importantly, the creator of your soul can bring you relief, He can save you from the dark pit of suffering you're surrounded in.
In Christian history there was a latin term used, it's "Post Tenebras, Lux" It means "After Darkness, Light" oh how that is so true for my life. I hope it will become part of yours. Seek the Lord, you'll find him to be a perfect savior.
If you are a christian struggling with these thoughts, remember that the Lord is faithful to keep you (John 6:39) The Holy Spirit is your comforter (John 14:26). He will finish the good work he has done in you (Philippians 1:6) and God promises us in the Golden Chain of redemption.
The Bible says
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16 KJV)
The Lord is listening. Pray to him, honestly seek him. I know from experience that we fall into a mindset of "no one understands me". Perhaps that it true in your life. But the God who created you understands you more than you understand yourself, believe me.
One of my favorite lines in the Lord of the Rings trilogy is when Sam tells Frodo
"There's some good in this world Mr. Frodo and it's worth fighting for."
Keep fighting. I'll be praying for you.
