One day when I was in the car with some of my colleagues off for some works, one of them who was just back from Japan told us that in her college there was a man who committed suicide. She told that if the man did it in his apartment, his parents would be charged for the suicide fee. Therefore he chose to do it at the college.
Than we discussed about some possibilities that made him do it. When comparing about how hard the life we faced, we concluded that we could survive because we had religion. We believed in God who always provided the best for us. That’s why even in the hardest time we didn’t lose hope.
I myself did experience some difficult times. There was a time when I want to give up and disappear. But at that time, my faith encouraged me. Keeping believing in God gave me strength to continue my life day by day. Even I didn’t know what would I face the day after it, I just trusted my God that He would not let something bad happened to me.
When thought about that time, I can put a smile on my face. Walking with God doesn’t mean everything is always easy but He will help us passing everything.
Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
