The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.

Job 33:4

As our culture moves further away from God, we are seeing an increase of hopelessness and despair leading more people towards suicide as an answer for their pain. Many are deceived into thinking that suicide is their only option. It’s a tragic trend impacting all socioeconomic, racial, and cultural lines. Suicide leaves more questions than answers that drills down throughout the generations of families.

The breath of life from God is a true gift. He gives us the strength and mercy to push past our physical, emotional, and spiritual pain. If we would humble ourselves and trust in Him—He will provide the healing, direction, and peace that passes all human understanding. The Lord—our Jehovah Jireh (God who provides) has everything we need. And He always provides a way beyond suicide.

The gift of life comes to us because God has a purpose and plan for every single individual born on earth. No life is disregarded or ignored by our Creator. The destiny that He plans is for our future and hope so that we can have fulfillment in living.

It’s up to us to make the most of this life by first accepting Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior of our lives. No one is perfect, every one of us has sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. When we believe in Jesus’ birth as the Son of God, His death as the crucified Savior taking punishment for our sin and His resurrection that gives us victory over sin and death—we become a part of His kingdom.

The life God gives isn’t to be taken for granted. We shouldn’t waste it on fruitless acts of selfishness or godless living. We have a responsibility and we will stand before God to give an account of what we did or didn’t do with our lives.

Even in times of difficulty, we aren’t alone because God will never leave nor forsake us. There’s hope in this life and suicide isn’t the answer. God will help us get through the darkest times of living as we put our hope in Him.


Dear Lord, sometimes life gets hard and I can’t figure a way out of the pain. I pray for your grace and strength to live this life in a way that brings glory to Your name. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
