Sometimes we feel lost. Everything seems to work against us, and there appears to be no hope. When we are in such a situation, we struggle to find something worth rising again and taking another step. Even those who commit suicide know the importance of staying positive and hoping for better times. Unfortunately, life’s challenges could knock you down and prevent you from seeing what life holds for you in the future. Before you lose faith and hope, here are a few things you should always keep in mind.
You Cannot Foretell The Future
Our lives tend to change every second, day, week, month, or year. You can go to bed weak and in tears and wake up to good news and new hope. Although sometimes things don’t work out as we had planned or expected, God has better plans for all of us. When you give up and commit suicide, you deny God a chance to change your situation. If you could wait a little while and stick to His promises, things will change and get better. Don’t focus on your current situation; think about what God can do in your life despite the odds against you.
You Can Succeed
We all want to win or succeed in what we do. Even if you have lost a few times, the situation can change any time in the future. You can rise again and beat the odds to celebrate your winnings. Victory should be part of you. Regardless of the challenges, depression, or problems that you are facing, you can certainly succeed. All you need is to hold on a little longer, pray a little harder, and stay on track.
When you allow suicidal thoughts and tendencies occupy your mind, you lose hope of living and give up on your battles. The devil wants you to lose your life, but you must keep faith even in the darkest hour. Things will turn around soon when you refuse to give up.
What You Have In You Is Greater Than What You Are Going Through
Most things in life make us happy. It is only a few things that seem to make us lose hope and feel helpless. Before you give up, think about all the achievements you have attained, the happy moments you have enjoyed, and the possibility of a better life in the future. Don’t believe there is no solution to your problem. Although it might seem to be the end of you, you have what it takes to overcome.
Focus more on the positive and turn your face from the possibility of losing. No one succeeded in the very first attempt. The greatest men on earth tried many times before they made it. They were possibly in a worse off situation that you are right now. What God has put in you is more significant than what you are going through.
Lastly, it is essential to remember that life is not for us alone. It is for everyone around us. You are a role model for someone, and giving up will make them lose faith. Stick to the fight a little longer. The future will be bright.
