Recently, I heard about a man who was so overtaken with anxiety that he tried to end his own life. In his desperate attempt to calm his troubled soul, he jumped off a bridge thinking that the water would surround him in its peacefulness but instead it put him into even more misery. He did not die, but was severely injured and ended up in the hospital.
This true story saddened me and reminded me that every human being, regardless of social status, struggles with the cares of life whether it be physically, financially, socially, or spiritually. Sadly, however, not every human being knows the Giver of peace. This often leads to the vain pursuit of relief in immoral relationships, drugs, alcoholism, and the most gruesome; suicide. This fake peace that the world offers is temporary and always ends in total destruction. All may seem hopeless, but let me tell you about a close Friend of mine, named Jesus! He said in Matthew 11:28, "Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest... for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls."
My friend, take your troubles to the Master!
He loves you, He cares for you, and He will gladly give you the peace you have been searching for.
Trust me, for I have tried Him and found it to be true. Jesus is ALL that you need!
