Sometimes it seems as though you are all alone in your struggles. As if you were an island in a vast deep ocean of darkness and wave after wave keeps coming with no end in site. We may feel as though we are drowning and want to give up. Sadly, many do. They choose to take their own life. Some call it the easy way out. I disagree. I don't believe for a moment that suicide is easy. Sometimes people ponder, even agonize, for months or years before they finally act on it.
I want you to know that you are not alone. You are never alone. If you put your faith in Christ, allow the Holy Spirit to take up residence in your heart, you will never be alone. Many great people of the bible considered dying over going on.
They all wanted to die at one time in their life. They wanted to give up. But God wouldn't allow it. He encouraged each of them and they all went on to do great things for God. Moses even wanted to throw in the towel.
God had a different plan. Moses felt as though the whole world was on his shoulders alone. It was unbearable and he felt as though he could not go on and asked to be killed. Notice what happened next.
- Seventy men were summoned.
- God came down to talk to him
- God spread the burden
There is a valuable life lesson to be learned here. I will sum it up with these 3 points
- Seek the company of believers
- Seek the counsel of God
- Share your burdon
Remember, if you are a believer, you have His spirit in you. To guide you, to comfort you, to help you, and to Love you.
