God stopped my friend from commiting suicide

Post by John7 on Sun Jan 23, 2011 9:23 pm

Hi all,

I just felt led to share this testimony about my best friend. Sometime ago, my best friend made a decision to kill himself. He got a rope out late at night, and walked into the backyard and was going to hang himself to death on a tree in the backyard. He simply could not go on in life, and he couldn't take the pain any longer of what was happening to him.

In the late dark hours of the night, as he walked toward the tree with the rope in his hand, and with a solid conviction that he was going to kill himself, he said that suddenly that night became day! He said the entire backyard lit up with bright radiant white light and he was suddenly raptured into the sky literally, and he said he was taken into the heavens and a voice spoke to him. He said the voice said, go to a particular city and you will be welcome there. He was then taken back to his backyard and the light disapeared, and he was back in his normal backyard in the late evening. After that experience he decided not to kill himself, and he obeyed the command of the voice, and a couple of days later he made the journey to the city which the voice told him to go too.

After spending sometime in this particular city, my friend attended a church and heard a testimony about Jesus Christ and my friend got saved. Praise God. He is now still alive and well and I spoke to him recently on the phone and wished him a happy christmas.

This testimony has been a blessing to me, and has gotten me through some hard times in my life. It showed me that God can come through for you, even in your most darkest hour.

I hope this blessed someone

PTL!!!

I'm a little embarrassed to admit this but it brings him Glory so I will. All my life I've been a pretty tough cookie to crack and a pretty happy person. Always hopeful, optimistic even though most the time I didn't have anything to be happy about. It was just a grace gifting from God that he put in my personality I suppose because He knew I'd have a bunch of choices in life where I would have to choose to be either bitter or better...

anyways... this past year has been a major exception to the rule. I finally cracked. Everything was ripped from me without warning. (other than a dream, which at the time I didn't know how to interperate, Praise God for Mia). I don't like to go into detail about things... but uh yeah... it was awful...

Right after the major blow happened I was in my room and for the first time in my life I thought, God, just kill me. I don't want to be here anymore. I'm sorry to feel that way... I know I shouldn't but I just don't. I can't take anymore disappointment, I can't take anymore heartache, I can't take anymore betrayal. I forgive and forgive and forgive, I give and give and give, I hope and hope and hope, I love and love and love, I give grace and grace and grace, I speak life and life and life... all by your strength of course, but God, your the only one who Loves me like I love others... I can't do this alone anymore. I don't have enough to give, I've been completely depleted of everything you've given me even though I was following you. I just don't know how it's possible for someone to live like this. Something's got to change. Lord I'm just not strong enough for this, I know I have to be and I want to be, I need to be but I'm not. I'm not built to live like this. You've got to rescue me or take me home because I just can't do this anymore.

I went to church that evening and they were doing a special "prayer and praise" service. The pastor came up to speak as he usually does before taking the offering and he said, "I've never done this before, but I just feel like there's a spirit of heaviness in this place." Then he went on to describe what he heard in his spirit and then had us come down to the altar where he prayed for us and anointed us with oil.

It really encouraged me because it let me know that he heard me. That he knew... and that was enough to give me a little spark of hope to hang on to. He's so amazing. I mean he talks all the time, but when your sad to that extent it's hard to hear him. I was greatly encouraged for Him reaching out to me like that. It was like He was bringing me into a new level of learning to trust in Him to take care of me. Like, even if I wasn't handling everything well, even then, He is still there... always.

Loving you through it all! Praise the Lord! Awesome testimony to what God can do. He never leaves us or forsakes us. He will be our ever present help in time of need. He loves the honesty that you brought to him. I think sometimes we are unwilling to bring our troubles to God but he wants us to. We think oh this is to small a thing for God but he says, no problem is to small and no problem to large for me. I love you with an everlasting love and I will be your ever present help in time of need. I will never leave you nor forsake you. Even when we can't see Him, he is there. Hold on to Jesus and cry out to Him. Awesome testimony.

love in Jesus,

Connie
