Are you a Christian who thinks about suicide? — 8 Comments

  1. Wow what a message. Again ty for allowing God to use you an for sharing this. A timely message as always. Thank God for His mercy & Grace. And Thank God for people like you and Barb.

  2. I do not deal with depression or suicidal thoughts, but I do have bipolar disorder. I do believe it is a chemical imbalance that can be treated with medicine as it does for my situation. However, for the longest time I kept it a secret from others for fear of being stigmatized. Now, I open up to others by sharing especially in the church community and it is such a freeing experience. Thank you, Sheryl, for your openness as well.

    • Bipolar is quite an issue, too, FellowBeliever. During my hospitalizations, I got to know many people who struggled with it. My prayers are with you. I’m glad you’re opening up to your church community!
      Thank you for dropping by Today Can Be Different and taking the time to leave a comment. Please keep in touch.

  3. This is such a needed discussion, especially around the whole issue of mental illness, especially among Christians. It’s truly a difficult matter to resolve with all of the associated stigma, hope, and dare I even say.. feelings of shame. 🙁 Bless you for your personal faith and strength in raising the issue!

    • Thank you, Sandy. I so agree, not just suicide, but the all of mental illness. I’m thankful for the progress the church is making … but pray it makes a whole lot more – very soon.
