The opening statistic says it all: “Each year 42,773 Americans die from suicide.” It doesn’t have to end that way. We don’t have to become a statistic. Healing comes through a relationship with the Great Healer Himself. I know that isn’t a popular message. I know it is not a message that many want to hear and acknowledging that let me just say this if you are facing thoughts of suicide: get help. Cry out to God. Cry out to a friend. Pick up the phone and dial a prevention hotline. Whatever it takes.
