Live Till You Leave
Updated: Sep 6, 2022
Many Spirit types are known for their upbeat and lively personalities, but secretly many of them tend to suffer from a little depression. The urge to just end it all and call it a day. But ending it all isn’t good enough because not only will the people you love miss you, but you won’t get the opportunity to show your light to those who you are yet to meet. Not only that, but you will also not be able to leave your mark in the world. Here are five reasons why you should stay in this world (even if you feel like you don’t belong) till God takes you away.
Because that is what God would want
Many spirit/ghost types believe in God (if you don’t, you are in the wrong section friend), so it is only fair that we wait till God takes us. The sixth commandment of the Bible states, “You shall not murder” (Exodus 20; NIV) and it is every believers’ job to obey that command till the end. Many might argue that God was talking about other people and not us, but it is easy to forget that we are also victims of our own anger and self-destruction. In a way, we are committing murder on ourselves when we commit suicide. Another proof is through Jesus’ words when He said, “but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.” (Matthew 24:13; NIV) he never said the one who gives up and kills him/herself, but the one who stands till the end. Remember, if you are on earth, you will always be useful to God.
Might As Well Finish the Race
I once wished I was never born but then I realized, “what is the point of wishing for that when I’m already here? Might as well finish the race I’ve started.” And that saying goes for anybody really. If you are already here, might as well keep going till the end. You might not have been dealt the cards you wanted, or you think you deserved, but why not just keep going and find out where those cards take you. The only prerequisite to life, after all, is to be alive. Many of us came into this world with nothing, and we will die with nothing. So why let the things of this world make you want to die before your time. Think of life as a race just because you are last doesn’t mean the race is over, you still must get to the finish line before the race is officially done. So go ahead finish last just if you finish that is all that matters.
You cannot Reverse Your Suicide
If you die and end up in the afterlife or hell, you will not be able to come back to earth not unless God permits it. You will be solving a temporary problem with an everlasting result that cannot be reversed.
Everyone Dies Anyway
Think about it for a second, you kill yourself when God had planned to take you away the next day that would be a bummer. Why die through your own hands when everyone in the world, including you, will eventually die sooner or later it just feels pointless. It's like going to fast food to buy some snacks when your friend had already called promising to buy you some on their way home. Not only will you waste energy, but you will also be wasting your time and resources buying those snacks.
With these points, I hope I was able to convince you to stay on earth a little longer till you are destined to leave.
