Her suicide attempts thwarted, her life restored by hope and love
A middle aged woman was on her way to commit suicide until she saw a message of hope and love on New Life Fellowship's Facebook page. Instead she embraced the hope offered and decided to continue to live for her ten year old son.
She had a big business and used to make lots of money. However, her personal life was not stable. She was unhappy. She was cheated by her business partners. She started to lose more money. And finally, her business went belly-up. She was in debt.
Night after night she felt depressed. Her hatred of her business partners, the anxiety about her family’s finances, and the fear of not being able to support her son were holding her back from sleeping peacefully. She decided to hurt herself even more. She started to spend time with her friends drinking and gambling which put her into more debt!
The burden of her debts was getting so heavy that she decided to sell off everything that she possessed in order to pay off what she owed. After resolving her debt, she planned to end her life.
We were informed that she was on her way to act out her plan when she read her Facebook , probably her last time to see what her friends’ latest posts were before she left this world. She then saw a live video shared by one of her contacts, the live video of New Life Fellowship's Facebook Page and it was a church sermon about a message of hope and the love of the Lord Jesus Christ. Miraculously, something touched her, and she decided not to kill herself. She managed to meet the person who shared the live video, and she was introduced to the services at New Life Fellowship.
Here, her hope started to be restored. She said that she had never had people accept her unconditionally before and whom genuinely liked her! It was a big internal transformation. She now regularly comes to our church service with regular follow-ups with some of our great pastors.
Recently, she found a new job. She has become a new person.
Jeremiah 29: 11-13"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the , “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."
