my_head_dark_space_300-webSTOP, DON’T DO IT! Take hope! You have options that you cannot see right now! It is not that you do not have options, it is just that you cannot see them. Evil forces can cloud our minds from seeing the hope that is there. You have an opportunity of a better day. It is real and it is out there. It is coming. Let God open your eyes to it and let Him do it for you. Give Him a chance to give you a chance. We love you and He loves you.

You have good options, you just can’t see them now.

Only the word of God can strip away the darkness so that we can see the brightness. You are in the dark simply because you cannot see the light. Hurt and hopelessness work together to block the light. The light is actually all around you. MAKE YOURSELF read the following scriptures, even if you feel absolutely nothing. The deadness will leave. Hope and light will seep into your heart. Do it!

Anyone who is among the living has hope. Ecclesiastes 9:4

Suicidal thoughts only survive within an outlook of complete hopelessness. Hope, true Bible hope, is the best antidote for hopelessness. Take the hope that is resident in the promises of God and put it into your heart. Your outlook will change. God has a wonderful habit of raising individuals out of impossible situations. He enjoys doing it, and it brings Him glory. The Bible is full of stories of people, just like you, that were delivered out of extremely dangerous and potentially embarrassing situations – including His own son, Jesus. You are no different. Reject the guilt and shame, and absorb His love, forgiveness, and hope. You will make it out of this situation! The darkness will not last. That is the real truth, but for it to work, you must see it as truth and believe it. This is where reading, speaking, and meditating God’s promises comes in. They will grow hope and belief in your heart. ALSO, PLEASE READ THIS – Helping Others Is God’s Prescription for Depression.

Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down (depression), but a good word cheers it up. Proverbs 12:25 Holman Christian Standard Bible

Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255
Allow God’s good word to cheer you up. God’s word is the only true source of hope because it shows the will of Him who can help. Allow the hope of a good result to seep back into your heart. Suicide is the extreme dead-end of hopelessness. Allowing thoughts of hopelessness to control your thinking narrows and darkens your path till suicide appears to be the only option, BUT IT IS NOT. There are plenty of other solutions; you just can’t see them now because hopelessness has blinded you to them. The hope that is resident in the promises of God will open the eyes of your heart, and you will be able to see again. It will get brighter.

Suicide only appears like an option when the devil has hidden all your other options. Allow the Bible to open your eyes.

You will have to work at it. You will not feel like it. Do it anyway, your life depends on it, and contrary to what you are feeling, YOUR LIFE IS WORTH IT. Suicide is a permanent solution to an intense but short term problem. Don’t do it!

“Do not be a fool–why die before your time?” Ecclesiastes 7:17b

This may sound harsh but the hard truth is this – the thought to end one’s life is foolish – and once you step back and see it for what it really is, you will understand. Do not despair; it will get better. The power to deliver is resident in His word. Put it to work for you. Relax and make yourself read these scriptures and let God’s word do the rest:

You are my lamp O Lord; the Lord turns my darkness into light. 2 Samuel 22:29

But you will not need to fight! Take your places; stand quietly and see the incredible rescue operation God will perform for you, Oh people of Judah and Jerusalem! Don’t be afraid or discouraged! Go out there tomorrow, for the Lord is with you! 2 Chronicles 20:17

You have granted me life and favor, and Your care has preserved my spirit. Job 10:12

I will lie down in peace and sleep, for though I am alone, Oh Lord, you will keep me safe. Psalms 4:8

For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield. Psalm 5:12

No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame. Psalm 25:3

You are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Psalm 25:5

You are my hiding place from every storm of life; You even keep me from getting into trouble! You surround me with songs of victory. I will instruct you (says the Lord) and guide you along the best pathway for your life; I will advise you and watch your progress. Don’t be like a senseless horse or mule that has to have a bit in its mouth to keep it in line! Psalms 32:7-9

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all. Psalm 34:18, 19

If the Lord delights in a man’s way, he makes his steps firm; though he stumbles, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand. Psalm 37:23, 24

Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. Psalm 42:5

Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall. Psalm 55:22

Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. Psalm 62:5

You answer us with awesome deeds of righteousness, O God our Savior, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas. Psalm 65:5

For you have been my hope, O Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth. Psalm 71:5

But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more. Psalm 71:14

I have put my hope in your word. Psalm 119:74

Sustain me according to your promise, and I will live…. Psalm 119:116a

The LORD upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down. Psalm 145:14

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3

Surely, there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off. Proverbs 23:18

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusts in Thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength. (Perfect means complete. If I keep my part of the promise by staying steadfastly focused on the Lord Jesus Christ, He will keep His promise to give me His perfect peace. Isaiah 26:3-4 See also Philippians 4:6-7 below)

And the ransomed of the Lord will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away. Isaiah 35:10

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid. John 14:27

We are saved by trusting. And trusting means looking forward to getting something we don’t yet have – for a man who already has something doesn’t need to hope and trust that he will get it. But if we must keep trusting God for something that hasn’t happened yet, it teaches us to wait patiently and confidently. Romans 8:24-25

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Romans 15:4

Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold. 2 Corinthians 3:12

Nevertheless God, that comforts, those that are depressed, comforted us by the coming of Titus; And not by his coming only, but by the consolation wherewith he was comforted in you, when he told us your earnest desire, your mourning, your fervent mind toward me; so that I rejoiced the more. II Corinthians 7:6-7

I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. Ephesians 1:18-19

There is one body and one Spirit – just as you were called to one hope when you were called–one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Ephesians 4:4-6

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Comments

  1. Ask God that He cover you with the healing protective power of the blood of Jesus. This is a powerful prayer! “They overcame him [Satan} by the blood of the Lamb and the word of the testimony…”Revelation 12:11. And 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 says: “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God, to the pulling down of strongholds; casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” Psalm 121:7 has a promise you can claim: “The Lord will keep you from all harm—He will watch over your life, the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.” You do not have to listen to the voices. They are not your own thoughts and it is great that you realize this. Do not sin because of those voices. You have a right to live and God wants you alive, or else He would have taken you home already.

    However, I must say that if you continue to struggle, it is possible that the voices can be quieted by medications. I know not everyone is open to taking medications, but I did and it really helped me for a time until I could be much stronger and transform my life. I still see a psychiatrist. Whatever you may have heard—a psychiatrist is just a person who can help. You may need to try different medications to get the one that works best, but you may be extremely pleased by the end result. No one knows why the medication works so well. We just know from experience that it is the only thing that helps some people.

    I will pray for you and I hope you will explore your options, eat healthy, and pray. God bless you, sister! Oxoxo

  2. I’m hearing a demonic voice saying shut up including insulting things even tries to get me to commit suicide i wish god would rescue me from this whole situation i been hearing it since 2016 it’s gotten worse with suicide I’m not asking to commit suicide neither do i want something forced from this demonic voice speaking also see things i don’t want to see

    1. Kimberly you can tell them to be gone in Jesus’ name. Just say demons, in the name of Jesus, be gone. They have to obey His name. I do it all the time, works great.

  3. Dear Linda,

    If you think Tim is really in danger of committing suicide, you should call a suicide hotline or emergency services like 911. USA hotline is 1-800-273-8255. I’m not sure where you are located. If you are outside USA, google the number for your country. Safety is always first! Praying for you.

  4. My 16 year old beautiful grandaughter Hailee is in the hospital for the second time after taking all her medication, depression and anxiety meds last night. She is not saved, nor her parents. Praying for healing, deliverance, salvation and for the Lord to intervene in a miraculous way in her life. Please pray for her.

  5. I am afraid for my son, Tim, 2. Father of 5, grandpa to 5. Two heart attacks, 3 stents. A great job. Long term so-so marriage. He has been fighting life his whole life. In our last conversation he mentioned killing himself. I have had this expectation for some years for him. The Evil One has control of his mind and Tim hates everything in his life. He knows ‘of’ God and Jesus and salvation but he doesn’t have a relationship. He hates having to work, wants his work to be something fun that he can love. His wife is blind, he has two grown sons who are legally blind but out of the house. He should be rejoicing but can’t seem to appreciate the gifts God has given him. He just wants out. He gets sick every day before going to work and misses many days a month. Pray for a calmed spirit and a grateful heart so he can see what he has and that his attitude change would make a huge difference. He refuses to take any meds to get therapy.

    1. Dear Linda,

      You are right that prayer is an option here. When it sounds like a brick wall situation, prayer has the capacity to change things. God has options that we cannot even imagine. In this situation, there is a mood problem most likely. It sounds like irritability and depression, as well as anger. There is a physical ailment that makes Tim sick. A thinking problem or what you may call attitude (lack of gratitude) is definitely part of it too. Expectations are a biggie. I can see the angles from a logical perspective, but this is more than that. People are sometimes plagued by spirits which have names, such as anger, suicide, depression, anxiety, defiance, restlessless, etc. This can be explained biblically by the following verses: Rev12:7-12. The problem is stated here and the answer is also stated within the problem. Lucifer used to be an angel, but he incited a rebellion in heaven and deceived 1/3 of the angels, as seen in Rev 12:4. Then they were cast to the Earth. So we wrestle against them, which are called “principalities and powers”. They are unseen to us. They affect us by making us sick and by putting thoughts into our minds. We think the thoughts are our own. That’s how they work. But the answer is: “They overcame him (Satan) by the blood of the Lamb. “ That means you can pray a very powerful prayer for protection and healing: “Please Lord, cover Tim by the blood of Jesus Christ to protect him and to heal him.” But he also requires what is called deliverance. Deliverance of one’s self or another person can be assisted by prayer and fasting. However, the legal right for the demons to stay must be removed in order to have lasting freedom from the spirits. Their legal right to stay is sin. Sin is their foothold. Sin means transgression of God’s law. This is primarily the Ten Commandments, but there are other commandments in the Bible that can also be followed. Anyway, if sin is removed, the deliverance is streamlined and it will be a lasting healing. A deliverance minister requires some knowledge, a connection to God in prayer, righteousness, and some courage and persistence. You can take a course for free at http://www.thejosephplan.org. Do the email course. I don’t care for the hardcore deliverance videos, but the email course is incredible. So are the articles. The deliverance minister must be righteous,, which means in a state of true repentence and living a sinless lifestyle. We all fall, but we repent when we do. That is called righteousness. Righteousness is power and gives a person authority over evil forces. The person to be delivered should want deliverance and be open to the process. It can also be done by Skype by a deliverance minister if you live in the middle of the country.

      I have taken the course and read several books. I was able to assist deliverance of one person remotely by prayer and fasting. She suffered from demonic harassment for more than 20 years. That is most of my experience. I am still learning. I help for free and I am against charging money for deliverance, which can be pricey. My email is sandymct@hotmail.com. I myself have been delivered from the demon of suicide and others. “Resist the devil and he will flee from you!” That worked for me many years ago before I knew about deliverance. But that is a hard way to go. It’s a battle that took years. I am quite well now from depression, anxiety, suicidal feelings, and addictions. God healed me through His power. My last demon was removed by self deliverance through Christ. I have been able to go back to school and become an RN. I now sing on the praise team at church and I teach Bible to children. I work as a school nurse. I thank God for the healing He has brought me, which is miracle upon miracle! He also healed my mother.

      Contact me if you think Tim might be open to the idea of this kind of help. I would have to actually talk to him and identify his needs. I will certainly pray for him.

  6. My big sister, TiAra, like the crown, just told me and my mom and little sister that we’re better off without her. Please pray for her. She’s 25 years old and has been through a lot. Pray for strength, pray that she doesn’t find that gun, pray that she doesn’t find anything to harm her. I can’t lose my only big sister. I just can’t. She’s lost and needs to be found, need to be at peace.

    1. Dear Taniea,

      I will pray for Tiara. I wonder why she feels this way. Is she in therapy at all?
      Please give her my website: http://Www.darknesstolight.info. Tell her to call a suicide hotline too! I am an RN and I have a personal history of overcoming from severe depression. You can give her my email if she needs a friend to talk to.

  7. Please pray for my daughter Nish she is living with depression and often contemplating suicide. She is doubting God’s word and will for her life. My daughter has 3 children and a bright future ahead of her If she can get past this battle with depression. She’s recently been baptized and joined church but due to the recurring depression she lost faith. I hate watching this and often I feel helpless also. We need prayer. Please and thank you God bless

    1. God has impressed me that I should fast and pray for Nish. This is the best way to help her. Depression can be caused by a dark force, an attack from Satan. He harrasses newly baptized people sometimes. A fast brings spiritual power and moves angels to protect. It would be good if you fast with me. When you pray, ask that Nish be covered by the blood of Jesus Christ. This blood protects and heals. It is the most powerful prayer I know. I have used it to help someone who was severely harrassed since 1986. The demons left her. You should also pray for the blood to cover you and protect you. I will be praying that this dark force be sent away from your household and that there be a blessing and peace fall upon it.

      Exodus 12:13
      And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

      Revelation 12:11. Speaking of how the saints overcame Satan:

      And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb and by the word of their testimony…

      Also, it is extremely important that you and Nish refrain from sin. This means that you must follow the Ten Commandments. This breaks any foothold Satan may have. You need to consider keeping the Sabbath commandment as well. This is a time to draw close to God and give him the time that He is requesting. The blessing is listed in Exodus 20 as being from Friday night sundown to Saturday night sundown. You may not keep it perfectly at first, but God will honor your decision to give Him glory. Do not fast on Sabbath. It is a celebration, a time to study, a time to be with family, and a time to attend church. You can prepare simple meals ahead on Friday before sundown. I pray you will get all the power and blessings you need to break this depression in Nish.

    2. Actually the sundown to sundown thing is from Genesis 1. When it says the evening and the morning were the third day in verse 13, it means that back then, days began when the sun went down.

    3. Praying for you and Nish. I pray that God offers her a light that directs her to a path that leads to see what good God has given us, what God has done for us, and what God will continue to do for us. I, too, know what it is like. I pray that Nish finds the same light that God casted over me. In his name, my God have mercy on us.

    1. Praying now. Will also submit to prayer warriors. Please check out my website for suicide prevention. http://Www.darknesstolight.info
      It is a Christian site because I feel there is much strength to be gained from the Bible. You can print some of it and bring to her to read. God bless you for your caring and love!

      1. “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,
        Because the Lord has anointed Me
        To preach good tidings to the poor;
        He has sent Me to [a]heal the brokenhearted,
        To proclaim liberty to the captives,
        And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
        2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
        And the day of vengeance of our God;
        To comfort all who mourn,
        3 To [b]console those who mourn in Zion,
        To give them beauty for ashes,
        The oil of joy for mourning,
        The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
        That they may be called trees of righteousness,
        The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”

  8. Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ, Greetings to you in Jesus’ name!
    I would like to share with you that my daughter Noorie is suffering by depression from last 2 years. Therefore, she couldn’t study well last year.
    In the mean time she has developed friendship with my previous Care Taker of our Worship centre who is a morally corrupted and a cheater. She has developed friendship with him over telephone & Facebook and maintaining friendship with him only telephone. There is no scope for Noorie to visit this guy.
    However, please continue uphold Noorie in your prayers. Pray that God might touch and change her heart and she will come back to Him with real repentance and ask forgiveness from Him. She already has stopped to read The Bible, prayer and worship Jesus. Even she has decided not to write for Medical entrance exams which she is having it on 6th May 2018. She was preparing to write medical entrance exams from one year but now she is telling us that she won’t write for exams.
    We are very sad for her life and her spirit of disobedience to God. She is having spirit of suicide and try few times to kill herself but our Almighty God has protected her miraculously.
    Humbly I request you kindly pray that God might change her heart & mind and she will come back to Him with repentance and humble heart. Pray that God might protect her from suicide. Regards, Bashir

    1. Medical school is a huge stressor. Maybe shes not ready yet. I will pray for her. It is important when you pray, to pleadtheblood of Jesus for her protection. It says in Rev 12:10-11 that the saints overcame Satan by the blood of the Lamb.

  9. Hello Bobbi. Please contact me by email. I offer prayer, Bible study and deliverance. What your feeling is an attack from Satan in order to put you in depression and blind you from the spiritual freedom found only in Jesus Christ. He tells us to cast our cares upon him and also cast down any evil thoughts contrary to his word. I can help you brother. Also anyone else battling thoughts, emotions, hearing voices, etc. Jesus is the answer. Don’t be destroyed for lack of knowledge.

  10. I’m disabled and have no friends. I complained and lost them over the past two years. No family either. I just exist. God intended for us to be married and have kids I have neither. What am I supposed to do?? How can I continue to exist like this. I’m not living. I don’t want to hurt myself because God is against it, but it’s awfully tempting. Please pray for me, I need all the help I can get. God bless us all!

    1. Dear Bobbi Simon,

      Depression can steal many enjoyable things away. It’s true. But you never know when you may meet a new friend or a lifelong mate. It helped me to envision my husband, that I had not yet met, as being present somewhere in the world right now. I just had to meet him, and I did only a month or so later. I also got on online dating websites. Okaycupid.com is really actually free and has a lot of people on it. But we cannot think that a mate will meet all of our needs. We have to do much of that, and we must stand as a complete person in order to be ready to meet our dream mate. In order to make ready, I would suggest you join a church and get involved in that and/or a club or group of some sort. Get into action doing things to help people. There are so many people who need what you have to give! You must also develop your talents and hone your skills. “Gifts that are not needed are not bestowed” by God. -Ellen White. God gave us gifts because He wants us to be His hands and feet to do His work on this planet. It could be as simple as giving a person a drink of water. It could be as complex as running a ministry at a church, writing a book, composing a song. or building a new church. Throw yourself into God’s work. You are needed and God will supply your need. Sometimes people in the church say they do not feel loved. I never feel that way because I am constantly giving love and volunteering my services. I just act and believe that I have the living water Christ spoke of to the Samaritan woman at the well. Love is a funny thing: you have to give it away to keep it. Giving love helps us to feel love, and that is enough. It is energizing and empowering, even all-encompassing. It is beautiful.

      As for disability, I have a disability too. The course of action is to acknowledge what you cannot do and work around it. For instance one person I know is blind, but he works for the Navy as a communications officer. He still can speak and hear, so he maximizes on that. He utilizes tools that are made to help people who are visually impaired. He develops his communication skills. He does not worry about being blind. And there are people who help him whenever he needs it because they see that he is a working man. He could be sitting home collecting benefits, but he wants to give to the world what he can. If you do receive benefits, that is ok because your parents paid into Social Security all their lives. So you are getting back what they gave. I was on benefits for about 7 yrs, but now I have gone back to school and become a teacher and a nurse. There is a time and situation for everything. Start with small actions and build from there. You are precious. Perhaps you may think of yourself as a seed that needs to be planted and watered. Depression puts us in a cocoon. But someday we will come out of that, and it will be a beautiful thing!

    2. Praying for you, Bobbi. Contact Catholic Charities, Lutheran Home Services and Salvation Army. Even if you don’t need nursing care, they can have someone visit you, bring you groceries , etc, so you aren’t so isolated. Also , contact social services. Sometimes there are adult rec centers available and transportation is provided. You can spend the days around other people and make friends. Call the nearest church that shares your faith and talk to the pastor. There is probably a family in the parish who would bring you to church and “adopt” you into their family. Family isn’t connected by DNA. It’s connected by love. You can have that big family that you’re craving.

      And you do have friends. Talk to Jesus. He was often lonely. He understands the feeling

    3. Bobbi the enemy wants you destroyed but the Bible says God has prepared for us good works to walk in. His promises are weapons against despair and the temptation to give up. Take the promises listed here and make them your daily food. I have never regretted doing this and I have confidence you won’t, either. Lean on the promises of God. Prayers.

  11. Ask the father to give you more love for His son. And try resting in the love that you have for Him.

  12. I am a believer but have strayed. I married looking for love but never really overcame rejection. Right now me and my husband are separated. He wants a divorce. I’m not handling it well at all. A part of me knows he loves me but the thought of him leaving overwhelms me and i start to picture all types of horrible things to do to myself to get his attention. A few times I’ve cut myself. One time i took a bunch of pills a long while back. When i feel loved i am ok but the minute i feel neglected or rejected my mind goes very dark. My prayer is that i can rest in Gods love, that i can hide in him. Right now I’m in a very dark place praying for a brighter day. If you have any words of encouragement please don’t hesitate to email me directly. Sheemahb@hotmail.com thanks
