someone you know
dies by their own
Another friend took her own life this week. It happened just over 2 years ago as well. I know she has had some very difficult times in her life. I don’t know specifics; she did not share with me. It seems she held things pretty close, including her feelings of desperation.
I wonder how God understands depression.
I think Jesus understood the dark separateness of the cross when He became sin for us. But long drawn out depression…I don’t know where I would find that. He became like us…for us. I have to do some research, ask some questions. I am sure there are many Christians who suffer who would really like to know the answer. I know I would. Perhaps my friend would have had a little more strength, been able to draw it from Jesus for another breath, for another day. I know there is an answer…so I am asking God right now.
