Hey there BCU Fam,
Today’s podcast is about mental health and suicide. As a disclaimer, please be aware the content may not be suitable for young children and may trigger some who are especially sensitive to this important and difficult topic. Please exercise prayerful and extreme caution as you continue to read the highlights and listen in. May God bless and encourage your heart and mind today and always.
- Many people in the world look as if all is well, but on the inside some are feeling the weight of their world.
- The load gets so heavy that things seem impossible and that’s where the enemy comes in.
- His job is to magnify the situation to the point where taking your life is the only option.
- Our job as people of God, is to be aware of who is around us and encourage people to seek Jesus.
KJV Scripture references
19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
I Peter 3:15
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fearTo every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.
The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised..
You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.
BCU Fam, let us make sure that we continue in prayer for the families of those who have lost a loved one due to suicide, that we pray for all those who are going through difficult situations, and we stay watchful and in tune with God to see how we can be a blessing to someone in word and/or deed. Although we may never know it, our kind acts may encourage a saint of the of Lord who is weary, or bring someone from the brink of leaving this life too soon. With the help of the Lord, let’s be intentional to do good to everyone in all our interactions, BCU Fam. Amen? Amen!
