Depression and suicide

July 02, 2015

We are a christian family and less then a year ago my husband toke his life. He had been suffering from depression since his surgery 8 months earlier. He felt that getting help would cost to much money. After he died, for the first few months I missed him so much that I thought about suicide many times even though I still a had another child to finish raising. That's how deep the pain was! Besides my church praying for me and me praying to God, I also started to really study the Bible. As I was going through cover to cover, I found verses that pertained to every situation in life, especially pertaining to suffering. Here are just a few (First Peter 1:5-7, James 1:12, Hebrews 12:5-11, Philippians 1:29). Everyone one of us is suffering in one way or another and according to the Bible it should deepen our faith in God. For me it certainly has! Without God's strength and support I would not be where I am today. Even though God has gotten me to this point, me and my family still feel pain, especially with the one year mark approaching towards the end of this month bringing back memories. Thank you for reading my story and please pray for us.

Confronting the Son of God ... (part II)

June 24, 2015

[PROVERBS 22:3-6 (NASB)]The prudent sees the evil and hides himself, But the naive go on, and are punished for it. The reward of humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, honor and life. Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse; He who guards himself will be far from them. Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.[ ] In remembrance: '[Lit. Trans. from Hebrew: HOSEA 4:6]are Destroyed My people for lack of knowledge. Because you the knowledge rejected, also I rejected you from being priest to Me. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I will forget your sons; even I.[ ] Grace Means Sobriety, 1 PETER 1:13-2:10: [Lit. Trans. from Greek: In Growth, 1 PETER 2:5]also yourselves as stones living are being built a house spiritual, a priesthood holy, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.[ ]'. THE SUPERIORITY OF THE PRIESTHOOD OF CHRIST, HEBREWS 5:1-10:39: [Parenthetical Warning: Don't Despise Christ, HEBREWS 10:19-39]Since therefore, brethren, we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more, as you see the day drawing near. For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain terrifying expectation of judgment, and THE FURY OF A FIRE WHICH WILL CONSUME THE ADVERSARIES. Anyone who has set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much severer punishment do you think he will deserve who has trampled under foot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has insulted the Spirit of grace? For we know Him who said, "VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY." And again, "THE LORD WILL JUDGE HIS PEOPLE." It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God. But remember the former days, when, after being enlightened, you endured a great conflict of sufferings, partly by being made a public spectacle through reproaches and tribulations, and partly by becoming sharers with those who were so treated. For you showed sympathy to the prisoners, and accepted joyfully the seizure of your property, knowing that you have for yourselves a better possession and an abiding one. Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised. FOR YET IN A VERY LITTLE WHILE, HE WHO IS COMING WILL COME, AND WILL NOT DELAY. BUT MY RIGHTEOUS ONE SHALL LIVE BY FAITH; AND IF HE SHRINKS BACK, MY SOUL HAS NO PLEASURE IN HIM. But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul.[ ] Jehovah, through YOUR Beloved Son; Jesus - the Christ, impart YOUR Wisdom and align the angels for guidance necessary for the necessities for these needed to thrive in this world without forsaking YOU and all that YOU were, are, and are to be and increase each and all of these children of YOUR Son's creation boundaries, and with YOUR Hand(s) be with each and all of these children of YOUR Son's creation throughout their days on earth for YOUR Son's glory, and that YOU; God Almighty - The Most High and the Creator of the Heavens and the earth - and all their host, would keep each and all of these children of YOUR Son's creation from evil all their days, that not it may grieve any one and/or all of these children of YOUR Son's creation in their lifesong(s) before YOU here on earth. In the name of Jesus - the Christ, Amen. For myself I pray: LORD, I am weak and I, admittedly being of sinful flesh, am not acknowledgeable for worthiness of or in YOUR Presence except by and through the personally accepted salvation offered through YOUR Son, Jesus - the Christ, my Savior and my Lord - Forgive me Father as I have forgiven those who have sinned against me. By YOUR Merciful Grace LORD Almighty I give thanks, and know this is for YOUR Glory, Honor, Blessing, Strength, Power, and Dominion for all things in the name of my Lord - YOUR Son, Jesus - the Christ, to YOU, even the Father; and I am subject in fellowship by the body of Christ to one another as I fear YOU. In the name of YOUR Son, Jesus - the Christ, the High Priest of Melchizedek forever, Amen. God Bless Us All, Each and Everyone, in YOUR Will with Merciful and with Everlasting, Hallelujah - He is risen and sits on the Heavens Mercy Seat!, Lovingkindness Through YOUR Son, Jesus - the Christ, the King of Glory. Amen.

Greetings in the name of Our LORD and Sovereign (Our [God] Father who is in heaven, for hallowed is HIS name.) through HIS Son (my Lord), Jesus - the Christ, and on HIS Account I bid Each One, and All of You, that "Blessings attend Each One, and All of You, that the King of Kings; being the High Priest of Melchizedek forever and the Prince of Peace, give Each One, and All of You, that peace which passes all mortal understanding (and wisdom) and when Each One of All of You has finished Your course (being of memorable, full, and rich days) before the LORD on earth may the KING OF GLORY welcome You to HIS Glorious Kingdom in the name of HIS Son - Jesus; the High Priest of Melchizedek, Amen. Fear not the trials and suffer the throws of flesh of the present inflicted, for the LORD'S Staff of Instruction is a mighty piercing lance wielded by the Holy Spirit of God, being stretched forth over HIS Chosen Called Ones about the whole of creation - for the days that were for Man were shortened, save all flesh perish before HIM. All that He; Jesus - the Christ, is, being; Master, in All HIS GLORY WILLING to receive to the kingdom of God the Churches shortly. Hearken to HIS Radiant Word that the LORD'S Rod of Correction touch not HIS Son's delights - for those in doing the Will of LORD'S Will heed the instruction of the LORD and are not won over to the world as the LORD of host offers freely and abundantly gifts of freedom to overcome the world and its lorded transgressional sin(s) against the Most Holy One: The chief Shepherd; The High Priest of Melchizedek - forever; the King of kings being the Prince of Peace; the Lamb of God; the Holy Redeemer, the Bridegroom Who Comes. Hearken, arise and hearken! All creation waits for the revealing of the sons of God! The Power of Sanctification: The Question of Living, ROMANS 8:1-39: [Expectant living, ROMANS 8:18-30 (NASB)]For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us. For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body. For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one also hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it. And in the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren; and whom He predestined, these He also called; and whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.[ ] [Exultant living, ROMANS 8:31-39]What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? Who will bring a charge against God's elect? God is the one who justifies; who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. Who shall separate us from from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Just as it is written, "FOR THY SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY LONG; WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED." But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.[ ] Grace Means Sobriety, 1 PETER 1:13-2:10: [Lit. Trans. from Greek: In Holiness, 1 PETER 1:13-16]Therefore, girding up the loins of the mind of you, being sober, perfectly hope on the being brought to you grace at (the) revelation of Jesus Christ. As children of obedience, not fashioning yourselves to the formerly in the ignorance of you lusts, but according to the calling you Holy One, also yourselves holy in all conduct become. Because it has been written: holy Be, because I holy am.[ ] [Lit. Trans. from Greek: In Fear, 1 PETER 1:17-21]And if (as) Father you call on (Him) the (One) without respect to persons judging according to the of each one work, in fear the of the sojourning of you time pass, knowing that not with corruptible things, silver or gold, you were redeemed from the worthless of you living handed down from fathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and unspotted, of Christ, having been foreknown before (the) foundation of (the) world, revealed but in (the) last of the times because of you, those through Him believing in God, the (One) raising Him from (the) dead, and glory to Him having given, so as the faith of you and hope to be in God.[ ] Grace Means Suffering, 1 PETER 3:13-4:19: [Lit. Trans. from Greek: Reasons for Suffering, 1 PETER 3:13-4:6]And who (is) he harming you, if of the good imitators you become? But if truly you suffer because of righteousness, blessed (are you). the But fear of them do not fear, nor be troubled, Lord but the God sanctify in the hearts of you ready and always to give an answer to everyone asking you a word concerning the in you hope; with meekness and fear, conscience having a good, that while they speak against you as evildoers, they may be shamed, those abusing of you the good in Christ behavior. (it is) better For doing good if wills the will of God, to suffer, than (for) doing evil. Because even Christ once concerning sins suffered, the just for the unjust, that us He might bring to God, being put to death truly in (the) flesh, made alive but in the Spirit; in which also to the in prison spirits going He proclaimed to disobeying ones then, when once waited the of God longsuffering in (the) days of Noah, having been prepared an ark, in which a few, this is, eight souls, were saved through water. Which also us figure now saves, baptism, not of (the) flesh a putting away of (the) filth, but of a conscience good an answer toward God, through (the) resurrection of Jesus Christ, Who is at (the) right of God, having gone into Heaven, being subjected to Him angels and authorities and powers. [4:1]Christ Therefore having suffered for us in (the) flesh, also you the same mind arm yourselves, because he suffering in (the) flesh has ceased from sin; for the no longer of men in (the) lusts, but in (the) will of God the remaining in (the) flesh to live time. sufficient For to us the having passed away time of life of the will of the nations having worked out, having gone (on) in wantoness, lusts, drunkeness, parties, carousings and unlawful idolatries. While they are surprised not running with you into the same of dissoluteness overflow, blaspheming; who will give account to the (One) having to judge living and dead. for this For indeed to dead ones was preached the gospel that they might be judged indeed according to men in (the) flesh; might live but according to God in (the) Spirit.[ ] [Lit. Trans. from Greek: Reactions in Suffering, 1 PETER 4:7-19]of all things But the end has drawn near. Be disciplined, then, and be sensible to prayers; before all things and to yourselves love fervent having, because love will cover a multitudes of sins. Be hospitable to one another without murmurings; each one as he has receiived a gift, to yourselves it ministering as good stewards of (the) manifold grace of God; if any speaks, as (the) words of God; if any ministers, as by strength which supplies God, that in all things may be glorified God through Jesus Christ, to whom is the glory and the might to the ages of the ages. Amen. Beloved, do not be astonished (at) among you fiery trial for trial of you happening, as a surprise to you occurring, but as you share the of Christ sufferings, rejoice, that also at the revelation of the glory of Him you may rejoice exultingly. If you are reviled in (the) name of Christ, blessed (are you), for the of glory and the of God Spirit on you rests; according to truly them, He is blasphemed; according to but you, He is glorified. not For any of you let suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or an evildoer, or as a meddler; if but as a Christian, not let him be ashamed, to glorify but God in respect this. Because the time to begin the judgement from the house of God; if and firstly from us, what (will be) the end of those disobeying the of God gospel? And if the righteous one scarcely is saved, the ungodly and sinner where will appear? So as indeed those suffering according to will God's, as to a faithful Creator, let them commit the souls of themselves in welldoing.[ ] [Lit. Trans. from Greek: MATTHEW 14:27-32]at once But spoke to them Jesus, saying, Be comforted, I AM! not Do fear. answering And Him Peter said, Lord, if You are, command me to You to come on the waters, He And said, Come! And descending from the boat, - Peter walked on the waters, to come toward - Jesus. seeing But the wind strong, he was frightened, and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, Lord, save me! instantly And - Jesus extending the hand took hold of him, and says to him, Little-faith, why did you doubt? And going up they into the boat, ceased the wind.[ ] For myself I pray: LORD, I am weak and I, admittedly being of sinful flesh, am not acknowledgeable for worthiness of or in YOUR Presence except by and through the personally accepted salvation offered through YOUR Son, Jesus - the Christ, my Savior and my Lord - Forgive me Father as I have forgiven those who have sinned against me. By YOUR Merciful Grace LORD Almighty I give thanks, and know this is for YOUR Glory, Honor, Blessing, Strength, Power, and Dominion for all things in the name of my Lord - YOUR Son, Jesus - the Christ, to YOU, even the Father; and I am subject in fellowship by the body of Christ to one another as I fear YOU. In the name of YOUR Son, Jesus - the Christ, the High Priest of Melchizedek forever, Amen. God Bless Us All, Each and Everyone, in YOUR Will with Merciful and with Everlasting, Hallelujah - He is risen and sits on the Heavens Mercy Seat!, Lovingkindness Through YOUR Son, Jesus - the Christ, the King of Glory. Amen.
