The tragedy that one’s circumstances could feel so hopeless that their only way out is death is so heartbreaking. I too can relate to the feeling of not wanting to be alive. Often times it’s even hard to thank God for another day. However no matter what you’re going through, you need to know that there is hope. I’m not speaking from vain unfounded optimism but real experience. It gets better.
To every person out there; our ever so vulnerable young people, you need to know that despite the situation, you are here for a reason. It doesn’t matter how difficult your life has been, how much pain you’ve gone through – you are here for a reason.
You could have been an unplanned unwelcome surprise; you are here for a reason. No matter the circumstance surrounding your life – there is a reason. You are here for a reason; your life has meaning. You were created by God for a purpose. No mistake or mishap that occurs in your life can take away your value or God’s plan for you.
He loves you perfectly and doesn’t measure your worth by your performance; how good or bad you do. In fact he says: “what shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his soul.” This scripture may seem misused but if you pay attention for a while you will realize that here God is speaking of your value. According to the passage, you are more valuable than the entire world, all the oil in the east, the precious metals and priceless jewels can’t compare to you. You are worth more than the world.
Don’t let anyone convince you otherwise. Don’t let any situation cause you to think anything less. You are valuable. No matter who treats you differently remember you are valued by God. He loves you and has a plan for your life. Everything you’re dealing with is to help you become who God intended for you to be. Although he didn’t send the circumstances, he is able to work all the negatives for your good if you’d let him.
In life, things get bad but God is always good and whatever you are going through will get better if you commit your life to him and trust him. He will uplift you when you’re hopeless and may be the only reason for your hope but the fact is – there is hope.
You can only find hope in this life. When you’re gone it’s too late now. So to everyone fighting to see the light, looking for hope and can’t seem to find it; if you’re ever contemplating suicide, before you do that, call on God. Open your heart, tell him how you feel and let it all go then watch. He will not only hear and comfort you, he will answer and you’ll find – there is hope. It gets better.
