Each day God allows us enough
evil and each morning renews our hope.(Lamentations

anxious and worrisome thoughts that would take away from any present peace
in your heart),
for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient
unto the day is the evil thereof" Psalms
118:24 "This is the day which the LORD has made; we will rejoice and
be glad in it."
Solomon, a man who had
it all, hated life:.Ecclesiastes

and on the labour that I had laboured to do. And behold,
all was vanity
and there was no profit under the sun.".And

The suicide prone
are locked in the
wrong present. Life for them has been one of lost hopes and sadness
over 'nothing ever' working out for them and perhaps 'nobody ever really'
caring for or about them. And most people don't! But when parents and family
are like that, they seek elsewhere, until it's noticed that others too,
only want to use them for their own selfish reasons. They see themselves
as useless in the bigger scheme of life on Earth. They need to listen to
and act upon the many prompts daily
that come to their mind from God. If a prompt is from God, it's always
toward good, of God's
higher consciousness. The suicide prone
should be alertly
listening to what is going on inside them. The suicide prone lack courage
to love their life, the love that would lift them up and away from the

The suicide prone need to be both alert.(why
patient until they come across someone who does care, "Please God help
me meet someone who does care about me".
The suicide prone fail to
see that they are already dead and do not know it:.Colossians
3:3 "For you are dead and your life is hid with Christ in God." Isaiah
53:6,10 ".....the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all...Yet
it pleased the LORD to bruise him.(the
Creator, the Father, killed
us); he has put him to grief.....".So,
there is no reason to kill that which is already dead, us. Suicide accomplishes
nothing. It only robs you of the time you have been given on Earth to grow
in the character necessary to gain the
best reward possible.
One's past, present and any
future circumstances that cause the sadness leading to suicide have been
dealt with by the One with the power to really deal with it:.2Timothy
1:10. One can now rest
in Him. How? Can you talk to God? Do not know how to?
"God, thanks that You made
possible my freedom by eliminating all sadness. I accept what you have
done for me and I decide to now live knowing that Emmanuel the Christ's
loving nature will immediately be given to me and forever after be in me.(Deuteronomy
31:6; Joshua 1:5; 1Chronicles
28:20; Hebrews 13:5),
expressing as the new me. I am now Your vessel, no longer being a captive
Life is never easy, only
possible, but the Creator will
hold you in life when in the life He freely gave you, one stops fighting
it and simply accepts what he or she has of it; but sadly, some
find it near impossible. None of us are towering pillars of strength
on our own. We all need the kind thoughts others have toward us in their
quiet times. But some
corporations are so stupid, so damn
greedy, so uncaring, they contribute to suicide.
Depression is a indulgence
of the self in negativity. Forget the self for awhile. People need you.
Stop being so damn concerned over what's on TV for an escape and start
to rule your mind with thoughts you choose.
That is why it is important
to be on the lookout for things bringing God, the spiritual side of life,
your mind. The things that further the realization that Christ's nature
of love is indeed
But sometimes we just feel like we are in
another world, feeling
like all hope is gone and want
to end life. Feeling bad is the
beginning. And the beginning
of that is...
Suicide is a decision to
not want to complete this life, based mostly on an inability to see that
worthwhile pursuits and things will eventually come to the one who persists
in improving himself, to the one
who sees hope for himself.
What you now do in life can
also lead you away from suicidal tendencies.
4:8 "Wherefore he said, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity
captive and gave gifts unto men." Romans
8:10 "And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin, but
the Spirit is life because of righteousness." Galatians
5:1 "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made
us free and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage." Romans
8:2 "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Emmanuel has made
me free from the law of sin and death." Romans
6:22 "But now being made free from sin and become servants to God,
you have your fruit unto holiness and the end everlasting life." John
8:36 "If the Son therefore makes you free, you are free indeed."
If depressed, pick a scripture
that you like and think the words, the meaning of it, over and over again.
I once was happy around a
girl who later told me that she could see that, here I was with more problems
than her, yet I was happy and that here she was, thinking of suicide.
This gave her the confidence
to carry on and eventually get over it.
You just never know who may
be affected by something as simple as your smile, which might be effective
in getting their mind off of themselves long enough to begin to see their
presently negative situation somewhat hopefully.

Life may not be worth living,
but what else can you do with it?
We are promised that all
the trials and sufferings that we're given, create of our own and just
encounter, are doing good for us, ultimately:.Romans

God on this behalf."

And so did Joseph
Jacob loved Joseph more than
older male children.(Genesis
35:22-26) (a great source of problems right away).and
made him this special present of a coat of many colors:.Genesis
37:3 "Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he
was the son of his old age and he made him a coat of many colours.".His
brothers viewed this as favoritism. It caused jealous hatred.(Genesis
Joseph from his brothers.
Joseph had a couple of dreams
and just could not keep his mouth shut about them, perhaps wanting acceptance
by his brothers after presenting to them the value learned from the dream,
of which he didn't totally comprehend
at the time:.Genesis
37:5-11. Here his brothers thought he was nuts and even his dad Jacob
was upset with him about it.
No one saw that God was
behind it all, yet!.Genesis
Fathers and Moms. The Great
Infinite One highly regards your feelings toward your
children. Future avenues of childrens' lives pave out according
to thoughts toward them. Even before conception, the atmosphere, the
structure in the invisible is created. Be sure you are high quality people,
that is, people of higher consciousness.
Though each of your children
are separate individuals, you have the highest regard for and the most
positive hopes for each of them. Build
upon this structure you have made with your expectations.
You love them all differently,
that is, when you think of them, thoughts and feelings are unique
toward each. Like driving your car at the same speed, but on different
roads with different scenery; like cooking with recipes, each all recipe
food preparations, but different to the eyes and in taste, texture and
nutrition; like looking at the stars each night, but each night it's different;
like every day at work is different.

an invisible atmosphere of development. Thoughts of parents throughout
the birth and growing periods are important:.Proverbs
One day Jacob, Joseph's dad,
sent Joseph to see how his other brothers were doing as they were far away
tending the father's flocks:.Genesis
As his brothers saw him

out of Reuben came the nation of France),
had an alternate plan to protect him.(Genesis
37:18-24), which plan quickly changed
with Judah, another brother, who had a money making idea that was kept
from Reuben, but Judah's idea also favored Jacob:.Genesis
When Reuben came to the pit,
he was so upset he tore his clothes in anguish:.Genesis
So the brothers contrived
another plan, this one to deceive
their father about Joseph's fate:.Genesis
Those who bought Joseph as
slave, turned around and sold him to the captain of the guard of Pharaoh,
King of Egypt:.Genesis
37:36 and 39:1.
Here Joseph learns the language,
becomes very prosperous and rises to the top.(Genesis
a bad woman, the king's wife, gets taken with his good looks and wants
to have sex with him, doesn't get what she wants and turns on him:.Genesis
Joseph ends up in prison
and develops favor in the heart of the prison keeper, from whom arises
implicit trust in Joseph.(Genesis
