Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. There are an average of 121 suicides per day. Those numbers alone say a lot. Our world has a problem when that amount of people want to end their life by their own hand.
The American Foundation of Suicide Prevention has had tremendous success with making our culture aware of the disease and its prevention but the help should not stop there. Psalm 46:1 tells us God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. If we are in the midst of a raging storm and our world is filled with turmoil and darkness, we can always look to Jesus for the light. There is always hope and there is always help.
