Suicidal Thoughts



Suicidal thoughts are from the devil. He knows that once you kill yourself, you are going to meet him in hell. I know that there are lots of pressures around you and voices in your head to end it all but by the power in the Name of Jesus Christ, whom I serve and whose I am, as you read this blog post, those voices are silenced for life! Can I hear a resounding AMEN? AMEN!

     Okay, so now, especially in Nigeria, recently we see on the news, people taking their lives due to their circumstances. One that struck me was that of a teenager in one of our universities. She took her life because her boyfriend broke up with her. Such a beautiful young lady but she wrote in her suicidal note that she didn’t see the purpose of her life. 

    See that? PURPOSE! Suicidal thoughts are all stemmed up from a feeling of lack of purpose to one’s life. It might be not having enough money or getting over a heartbreak. The devil uses that opportunity to tell you that lie that your life does not have any worth and it is finished. Dear reader, this is not true. The truth is that you are on this earth for a specific purpose and nothing around you has the ability to remove that purpose from you.


   Things might be messy for you but it still does not change the fact that your creator had a massive plan for your life while creating you. Nothing you have done or gone through can ever make Him change His mind about you. If you would go boldly to ask for help, He is eager to show you the way out of your mess. Don’t listen to the opinions of people. They don’t define who you are because they have no capability to make a strand of your hair.
And you too, you have no right to take your life or think suicidal thoughts because you didn’t make you.

   Imagine iPhone attempting suicide because it feels it has gone through a lot or it has no use to anyone again or it does not see the point of being used any more. Would that not be an insult to the apple company? God had amazing plans while creating you. He is your manufacturer. And it is His delight to see His product function well. But to go through life, you have to read your manual to understand you. He won’t give up on you so do not give up on yourself.


ACTION PLAN: Meditate on Jeremiah 1:5 Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of the day, I had holy plans for you: A prophet to the nations--that is what I had in mind for you.

Rejection

You are not an ice cream, not everybody has to like you.    Rejection can be devastating. Rejection from a loved one, family, job or someone you held up in high esteem but hey, one rejection doesn't change the fact that you are amazing. See, when people reject you, don't blame yourself for "falling short or not being good enough" See it as them having a better option and you having an opportunity to be a better person. If you dwell on your rejection, you'll soon be a bitter person to be with.

    When Joseph in the bible was rejected and sold out to Egypt by His brothers whom he loved and brought food for while they worked, he didn't wallow in Egypt or brand himself as unlovable. Instead, he went from being a slave, to a prisoner, to the palace and finally a right hand man to the King of Egypt. Ultimately, his brothers came to beg him for food. So you see, Joseph was busy prospering instead of being bitter. He worked on himself, fixed his eyes on God and grew …

Authentic ways to rid anger

It's not surprising to see a gentle, calm person blaring off in anger on slight provocation. In fact it is often believed that the seemingly calm and quiet people are the ones who do unspeakable things when they are angry.This might not be far from the truth. Growing up, I was always the calm one who didn't have issues with anyone offending me but yet I found myself blaring off at someone who has offended me over a long period of time. The rage of my anger would be so fierce that people would conclude that I have been bottling up offences. After I'd finish venting off, I'd go to my room to wallow in guilt and self pity at my attitude. I'd keep asking myself why I lacked self control at the same time, trying to justify my anger. Afterwards, I'd avoid the person who made me angry as much as possible till I was satisfied at the distance kept.

The truth is that, this is not meant to be normal. This kind of anger leads to sin. Ephesians 4:26-32 says '...be angry …
