Inspirational Video

A long time ago, I made the below video on Evertoon, hoping that someone will see it, when they need to when contemplating suicide. Jesus is always there for us in a time of such crisis and listens to us in our time of need.

If you know someone who may be struggling, please understand that it can be challenging, and a seemingly impossible task to rise above the darkness threatening to crush us. Remember, it is NOT impossible. How do I know? I’ve been there many, many, many years ago. I prayed to the Almighty Lord about what I was feeling and why. I prayed for his help because I didn’t want to feel like that any more and wasn’t sure how long I could live in the dark, depressed state. Immediately after I cried out for him, instantly a thought came to my mind: Call your mother.

I called her and cried, pouring out all that was in my heart and asked for help. I told her I needed her. She was there for me, and even mailed me copied pages of bible excerpts to read, reminding me I am not alone. I have her and God. That was what worked for me. That is the tool God used to help lift me up into the light. To this day, I will always cherish the love given to me, which was so strong, it carried me up.
