The topic is suicide. Don’t do it. Do not even think on it. Suicide is never an answer. It only creates a ton of problems. I know you do not want to hurt the people who love you. You would be destroying them. The pain of losing you would be more than they could bear.
Suicidal thoughts come from anxiety, stress, depression, job loss and many other things. We need to retrain our brain. We have choices in life. We can choose to feed ourselves untruths. We all know what they are (not good or pretty enough, not rich enough, not worthy, stupid, etc.) I had to quit with the list because it brought tears to my eyes. Those things simply are not true. Not for you, me or anyone else. They are lies of the enemy of our soul. He wants to kill, steal and destroy us. He will use any weapon in his arsenal to achieve his wicked scheme. We can believe the lies of the enemy and sometimes even those closest to us OR We can believe and tell ourselves the truths as listed below from the Bible.
You are dearly loved by God (John 3:16).
You are known by God (1 Corinthians 8:3).
The Lord knit you together in your mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5).
God has a plan for you (Jeremiah 29:11).
God knows how many hairs are on your head (Luke 12:7).
Your life has purpose (Romans 8:28).
You are precious to God (Isaiah 43:4).
You were made in His image (Genesis 1:27).
He has precious thoughts of you (Psalm 139:17).
He desires to walk closely with you (Micah 6:8).
He has given His life for you (1Timothy 2:6).
You are beautiful (1Peter 3:3-4).
You are His child (Galatians 3:26).
He would search the whole earth to find you (2 Chronicles 16:9).
You cannot outrun His love (Psalm 139:7).
You are worthy (Romans 5:8).
You are God’s special creation (1 Peter 2:9).
You are chosen (1 Peter 2:9).
You are a royal priesthood (1 Peter 2:9).
Those are the things we need to feed ourselves. I believe our soul is starved for the truth of who we are according to the word of God. So go ahead, make notecards, post them on your mirrors, doors, dash of car, headboard, and notebooks.
God created each of us for a purpose. Do not let satan (purposely not capitalized) steal what God has purposed for your life. Do not believe the lies of the enemy or the world any longer. Speak to your enemy, if it is fear, doubt, unworthiness, or any other negative thoughts and tell them to go away in the name of Jesus.
Now feed your inner child some well deserved and much needed truths. Love yourself. I know that God does. You matter. Your life matters. God has a purpose for you. Focus on finding it and send the garbage from the enemy back to hell where it belongs.
Pray with me please,
You are Lord of everything. I want to make You Lord of my mind and thoughts. Father, You know everything and You know that I have been held captive by the lies of the enemy for too long. Satan has used death, fear, unworthiness, doubt and a slew of other negative emotions for long enough. (Say this out loud) Father, I speak out loud to them, in Jesus’ name, to flee from my mind.
I ask You to loose more of Your Spirit in my life. Draw me in closer to You. Please help me to fill my mind with the truths about me, from Your Holy word. May I get so full of the truth about who I am that I am able to help others who are believing the lies. May my life be a reflection of the power of the most High God living and breathing in me.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13) I am more than a conqueror through Jesus. (Romans 8:37) I praise You and thank You for restoring my life. You are my hope and You fill me with joy. May I sing of Your greatness and power. I feel the release right now. Death, you have no hold over me for I am a child of God, marked with His seal. In Jesus’ name I pray.
We are instructed to bear one another’s burdens, (Galatians 6:2) so if there are any prayer requests feel free to leave them in the comment section. I would be honored to pray with you. If it is more private you can always contact me via email at email@example.com I check that every day. Blessings to you all, till we meet again, tomorrow, if the Lord is willing. Peace.
