7 Reasons to Choose Hope instead of Suicide

People face hopelessness until they consider suicide as an escape route.

However, you should look at this seven reasons why suicide is not the best way to define your life.

1.You are not the only one living the world.

There are more than six billion of people in this planet. However, many of them are going through the same feelings and pain as you. And some have chosen to end their lives as a result of tribulations, while others have decided to remain hopeful.

1 Corinthians 10:13-" No temptation[a] has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted,he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it."

2.Learn to accept the past and focus on the future.

Past has no reverse gear. Past is no longer existing, you don't live there any more.

2 Corinthians 5:18-19-" All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation;  that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation."

3.There is Hope in God who knows our problems.

Romans 15:13-" May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."

4.To accept the present situation can give you an ample time to rectify any mistake you may have done.

1 Thessalonians 1:3-" We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ."

Romans 15:4-" For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope."

5.Accept the future outcomes.

The future does not exist yet, but it is just imaginary of something you have in mind.

Future is like another chance for you to make another plan and try another luck.

Matthew 6:34-" Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

2 Corinthians 10:5-"We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ."

6. God has a great pan for you. Have hope in him, for he's the ultimate boss of everything.

1 John 4:16-" And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them."

Jeremiah 29:11-" For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

7. Help is readily available to you, just believe and pursue it.

Psalms 4:8-" In peace I will lie down and sleep,for you alone, Lord,make me dwell in safety."

Isaiah 59:1-" Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save,nor his ear too dull to hear."

Hope is like faith, you believe to something you can not see or hold. It is just a matter of imagination for something good for yourself, your family or your friends.

Therefore, better have hope and wait for your time than to make an abomination before God by committing adultery.
