National Suicide Prevention Week –
Emotional pain pours over us leaving its sharp residue of sulfuric acid or even ammonia in our eyes and we cannot see past the torture. But know that it will get better!
I think this is National Suicide Prevention Week, or maybe it’s not. But our troubles do not await an appropriate time. We cannot select specific dates for our grievances to strike, nor can we postpone, or cancel their arrival.
Please remember that you are not alone. No matter how lonely, depressed, desperate, or grieved you might feel this day, week, or year, it will change!
Suicide is deadly and never the way out.
“Come to me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
