Can you relate to words like “bitterness,” “hate,” “,” “sadness,” “guilt,” “anxiousness,” “weariness,” “irritability,” and “hostility”? Do those words describe you?

The people I’ve written about, and I count myself among them, are real people with real problems of depression and thoughts of suicide. There is a solution. I’ve only written of a few people, but there are millions who have experienced the miracle of being saved by Jesus Christ. Why are there millions? Because it works, it’s real, and His love surpasses anything they or I have ever experienced.
Will your problems, issues, circumstances, and aches and pains disappear? Probably not. Will they improve and get better?

The feeling of despair will be removed for good and replaced with the hope of eternal life.
