Q. My name is Shirley. I am a born again believer. I read on your website once where you said that death was the ultimate healing in a way for Christians. I suppose it is.
What about suicide? I don’t think I can do it, but I can’t take the life I’m living much longer. It would be different if there was some love in my life, but there isn’t. I hear the Lord speak to me and I know He loves me, but in my material, tangible life here and now, there is nothing but heartache, fear, and dread. It doesn’t change. I have believed for many years it would. I don’t think I can face another day without some kind of hope for here and now. Some kind of strengthening of my love for the Lord and I need more faith. But it alludes me now. No joy left. Husband abusive and so very ill…nothing I can do to help anymore.
Please, please, remember me in your prayers. Thank you for all the beautiful things you have written. I have enjoyed your website.
A. Death is the ultimate healing, but suicide is the murder of self and is a sin. I will publish your letter and I’m sure thousands of people will join me in praying that the Lord will send both His peace and someone who will love you while you await His soon coming.
