How I Went From Suicidal to JOY

Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the lights.

Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the lights.

happinessA great platitude, right? Every time I ended up in the hospital for my severe depression this saying was everywhere.

A wonderful thought but what if you don’t know how to find the light switch? I searched for years while falling deeper into my self hating depression.

Now, I am going to tell you how I went from suicidal to feeling an inner JOY that radiates throughout all my days.

No, I don’t have more money — in fact, I am still jobless. I did dye my hair the other day but that wasn’t it.

light-of-lifeThe Light Switch

I do have a new love in my life. HE loves me. I know this for a fact because HE:

  • sees me as beautiful knowing all my faults.
  • listens to everything I say — even when I am rambling on about some book plot.
  • has my back, front, and sides at all times; especially, the most trying.
  • lights up my darkness with the Light of Life.

Who wouldn’t feel JOY over that kind of LOVE? HE is everything that I could wish for and none of that is why I love HIM. I love HIM because HE is:

  • generous, kind, and loving to all.
  • righteous.
  • honest.
  • willing to die for me and you.

In fact, HE did. HIS name is JESUS CHRIST.

Have you felt Christ’s love transform your depression to joy?

Call To Non Believers

You can have that LOVE and JOY as well. Anyone can. All you have to do is have the FAITH to accept HIM as your LORD and SAVIOR. Yes, CHRIST is the light switch.

HE is the only ONE that bring you inner JOY and PEACE for eternity. All other ‘fixes’ are temporary and fleeting.

Of course, you have a part to play after this. Read the Bible, find a Church nearby — or do like me watch Shepard’s Chapel and listen to KLOVE, pray, to name a few of a Christians responsibilities. However, as mentioned on this sites home page, this is easy. YOU want to do all of these.
