A New Look At Pain

Life sometimes offer shattered pieces that break the human heart and hurt the soul leaving the victim with unseen deep wounds.

Even those perceived as tough, crack under its weight.

It is in view of this that suicide has been on the rise, especially in Nigeria.

The deceased burnt out, became exhausted and chose to find a quick exit out of this realm. The negative circumstance cluttered their minds and they failed to see light at the end of the tunnel, even when they claimed to have faith in God.

Last week, I read on Facebook a young man downed sniper down his throat because his girlfriend ended their love story, abruptly.

He said she went silent for a while before calling it quits.

His heart broke;

His mind snapped;

Love failed him;

The hurt was deep;

It was impossible to heal;

So he wanted an easy way out;

He lost it;

Suicide was a relief;

And he ended his life.

This permanent action to a temporary situation bids me to share this quote:

Whatever is broken can be mended. Whatever hurts can be healed. As long as it is handed over to God, a positive change is guaranteed.’

The clay can be broken. And the good news is the Potter has what it takes to fix the pieces without scars.

However, this happens only when we are willing to drop our worries and cares at the feet of the Master.

There is no closed case with God. Your willingness and belief in His nature and faithfulness to His Word truly matters.

Life happens to all. Your case isn’t something new or strange that isn’t common to man. Read how Apostle Paul puts it:

We all experience times of testing, which is normal for every human being. But God will be faithful to you. He will screen and filter the severity, nature, and timing of every test or trial you face so that you can bear it. And each test is an opportunity to trust him more, for along with every trial God has provided for you a way of escape that will bring you out of it victoriously (1 Corinthians 10:13 TPT).

God cannot be broken by your brokenness.

He is faithful even in the midst of the storm.

He is dependable.

Suicide is not an option.

    1. Yeah! Suicide is really awful. What a selfish way of chickening out because life happened.

      I’m glad you loved the quote.

      God is our renewed strength.
