Hello. I am a 23-year-old father dealing with depression and suicide. I put together an article to sum everything up. I am running out of answers and patience. Any help or blessings.

Mark, thank you for your kind words and thank you for taking the time to write all that. I will be reviewing and reading the scriptures you sent me. My family and I just don't feel at peace being away from our home.1 Cor 6:19-20 Timothyhero,I just first wanted you to see something from our Lord about looking to take control of your own life. Having self control is his fruit!( Gal 5:22-23) There are so many who are in the very same place as you are bro,not enough money,no real direction in how to even manage where one is now,and of course my favorite,why me!
At almost 22 coming back from two tours in Vietnam,having witnessed more horror,and death then most will ever have to deal with in a life time,I stood above a large bridge,overlooking the freeway,I was all set to jump to my death,when suddenly I felt someone push me away!! This scripture I gave you was given to me by an angel of the Lord. i was not a believer at that time brother,but all the depression and thoughts of taking my own life suddenly left me.It was only days after this,that i gave my heart to the Lord for good!
This is not to say that all of my problems went away,but I had no more fear of life,of people,or of my situation. I sat in church, and thought the pastor, who had no idea who I was, had been given words by Jesus himself just for me that day. Not to bore you to tears with its length,i will just hit some highlights for you.He said, " ( Psalms 119:169-176) and Psalms 34:17-18 Fro brother if i would have taken my own life back then,how then could the lord have ever used me to speak to you now? Hence the hope we all have my good brother!!( Rom 15:13)
If you are not presently a believer,as i was not,then this message will really manifest some purpose to you, even as it did me,and if you are a believer,then this message will confirm something others have spoken to you,that come very close to this message.Life is not fair brother,life was never meant to ever be fair,but what life is,can be termed as enduring.( Heb 10:36)
If we do not endure no matter what,then we will never find out what the will of God is truly for our life,as well as for others. This step many consider taking, has no repentance to it,there are no do overs,and there can be no forgiveness for it.( Psalm 115:17-18 and Isaiah 38:18-20!!) There are people brother than only you can help! if you are not here to help them,they will also perish!
People think by taking there own life,it only affects them,and they could not be more wrong! The confirmation to this, you can see for yourself! What is true brother,is the purpose we are here is to overcome! EVERYDAY and in every way! All God asks of you, is that you perform the only work he requires of you. To believe!!( John 6:28-29)
And if you will trust in the Lord, and take him at his word no matter your feeling or mindset,then he will grant to you, the very same he has done unto me, your servant!!( Proverbs 3:3-6)" This gave me hope brother!! God's hope,not my own hope! An everlasting completion of a state of both mind and body, I could in no way have without our Jesus.May this both bless you,and comfort your mindset in believing forever,never doubting!! Your brother in Christ mark
HI, I don't know exactly what you situation is and I don't like making a backseat diagnosis. I do have considerable professional counseling education and experience, however. My advice is for you to seek out a qualified therapist. Just about every city has fully qualified Christian therapists available, if that is what you want. Faith is definably part of the healing process, but you may also need medications and additional counseling as well.Hello. I am a 23-year-old father dealing with depression and suicide.
