Faith & Suicide


You are not alone. Jesus cares and says you are worthy. He says you have a purpose. He created you like no other! The lenses of depression and hopelessness try to cover your view of the light, but that doesn’t mean there’s no hope. You just might not be seeing it accurately. Your life matters. God created you and He loves you. Even when you feel separated from His love, you aren’t. Nothing can separate you from Him.


Thoughts of giving up and not wanting to go on can be frightening. But don’t let fear paralyze you. Not taking these kinds of thoughts seriously can have devastating outcomes.
