DID YOU KNOW? #22 (Suicide)

Did you know suicide is never the answer to any problem?  You have power over your mind, not outside events.  Realize this and you will find strength.   Marcus Aurelius

You are not the only one with problems, and suicide is not the answer or the cure.  Did you know some of those problems others have should leave you mute and appreciative it wasn’t you?  Take the time to learn more about yourself, and about those you surround yourself with, which may be the root to some of your stumbling blocks, and Devil serving decisions.

Did you know problems are worth their weight in gold?  Perhaps, that is because of their value if used as a guideline to not create, join in, suggest, or cause that thing to happen, or ever happen again?  Problems are lessons to be solved, not to die over.

Every one of us has problems, and there are only two ways I know of to resolve them.  One such way is to fix the issue, the other is death; which is not an option or a decision I would choose for myself.

Did you know suicide is unacceptable even when we cannot resolve our problems, nor is using the same methods that created them?  Problems are not designed to stop us from doing anything, they are there because there are bumps in the road and stuff happens, then life goes on just as we should.

Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem, and I’m sorry to say that some see suicide as a way of telling God and others they quit.

Did you know, our loved ones, (family, but not necessarily blood kin) and real friends are the ones we don’t have to beg, chase after or fall over?  They are the ones who accept our negative nature without fear of hurting our feelings, and will attempt to correct our bad behavior whether we like it or not; possibly saving us from doing the unthinkable.  (Killing ourselves.)

I am a  “Living Witness”  to the fact that the Devil is always happy and willing to give bad advice.  Perhaps, the suggestion to “take the easy way out,”  is more recognizable to us, then the realization that the suggestion comes from Satan, and we do not realize it is his answer, not God’s to all our problems.  A devastating step away from victory.  Some know to call on the name of the Lord.  Which is what I am trying to tell you.

It’s easy to be tricked when situations are not fully understood because of emotions, lies, bad decisions, and wrongs that are coupled with the sins of our fathers and others.  Causing us to believe our life is out of control, and we are not worth the air we breathe.  This can leave us zapped and unable to suck the pure essence of our existence in; at lease the way God meant for it to be…After all, he did say, I knew thee before I formed you in the belly.  Jeremiah 1:5

It’s best to step back and take a moment to choose your friends wisely and with like-mindedness.  If we hang around  “gloom and doom”  long enough, eventually it will overshadow us.

Help is required in most situations, dire or not.  The best way I know how to receive that help is to let go of my understanding coupled with my pride, and join a Bible Believing, Bible Teaching Church, and let a Pastor who teaches the Word of God to help you understand God’s Will, and how it pertains to me.

The first step is to be mindful and knows everything in our life is not going to be perfect.  But, we can get closer to perfection when Jesus Christ is involved…

Just because some things don’t work out, does not necessary mean it was not for you or a good plan.  Sometimes it’s not it’s time, so we have to crawl before we can walk.  Some of us can and will be ahead of the times, we just have to know that while waiting on the Lord.

Believe me, it’s not our plan that will work anyway; It’s God’s plan.  Receive that knowledge or …?

FYI: One of the first steps to gaining confidence in our own life is to not criticize others, condemn or complain.  Rather pray for salvation, gather up all your courage, while trying not to make a fool of yourself when things are not going your way.  Do not let your downfall be caused by a lack of knowledge concerning God, his blessings, and how to access them.

With Jesus Christ, we expect for things to be in our favor, and most will, as long as it is done His way.

Believe in yourself through Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, and while you’re at it, believe Job 1:21; I came naked from my mother’s womb,”  he said, ” and I shall have nothing when I die.  The Lord gave me everything I had, and they were his to take away.  Blessed be the Name of the Lord.

Don’t get it twisted, we are talking about the life we think belongs to us, that don’t.  We are a vessel unto the Lord.

Did you know, Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints?   Psalms 116:15

“O Praise the Lord, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.  For his merciful kindness is great toward us; and the truth of the Lord endureth for ever.  Praise ye the Lord.”   Psalm 117:1-2

In Jesus name we Pray.  Amen

TOO BUSY?

Oftentimes, we are not as busy as we portray ourselves to be.  Especially, when it comes down to others who may need our services.  We have the uncanny ability to come up with an extensive array of “why we can’t” excuses.

Just remember you will have a turn too, and when you do, expect as much as you have given.

Now, don’t try to blame your inability or unwillingness to get involved in what happened yesterday with some lame excuses.  Simply tell the truth, “I didn’t want too.”  “It is what it is,”  and it would be wise to keep in mind yesterday is history.  And if your answer for help today is, “I’ll do it tomorrow,” maybe we need to take into consideration that tomorrow is a mystery, and it has not been promised.

Today is the day to put yesterday behind us and pray for a better tomorrow.  Today represents the present, a gift from God, in both manners of speech.  Use it wisely in hopes of surviving another day.

So, if I may suggest, treat today as if it is your last, for it may be, and there is no tomorrow in that outlook for us to look forward too.  That don’t mean for us to act a fool and live today as if tomorrow will never happen.  I am sure we are smarter than that, you think?

In Jesus name, we pray, for a better tomorrow and a brighter future, if we are graced to live through another day.  Thank you, Lord.  Amen
