Do people really need me? When will all this pain end? Will I ever be happy again? What is the point of my life if it repeats over and over? Why am I happy one day and depressed the next?
These questions used to and sometimes still do taunt and mock me. Have these thoughts ever come into your mind late at night? Do these thoughts come to you when you’re tired? Tired of trying your best and feeling like you’re not getting anywhere?
I feel you. I see your pain. I see your anxiety and anxious thoughts. The ones that drive you crazy and wish they would just shut up! Yes, I have been there too.
What if I told you that your life doesn’t have to be that way (Romans 8:28)? What if I told you that your life does have meaning even when it doesn’t feel like it (Jeremiah 29:11-13)? What if I told you that there is Someone who gives your life a purpose and meaning even when you don’t see it? What if I told you that there is Someone who cares that you have spent nights crying yourself to sleep (Psalm 86:15)? What if I told you that that Someone can use your pain for good and can set you free (Genesis 50:19-21)?
All this has helped me to see that my life is precious. Who am I to take it? God put me here on the earth for a reason. He alone decides when my life is over even when my life stinks and I wish it were over. Even when all my pain is unbearable and wipes out half of my memory (Psalm 59:9), there is always hope and a reason to live (Romans 15:13).
What everyone needs to realize is that they are a son or daughter of someone. Their moms or dads will have thier hearts destroyed if they take their life or don’t ask for help. So please ask for help because it is out there. Nothing is so bad that with some help things will get better.
