But maybe this person isn’t so hard to imagine, because maybe you’ve just landed on this page to see if there’s perhaps even one good reason to continue your life. If that’s the case, I have great news: I’ve listed three great reasons to live below.
- God really does love you. (Bear with me on this one and keep reading… please?)
- You really can trust God.
- If you were to die today, then you would never get the chance to understand reasons 1 and 2. Plus, you would never get the opportunity to see how God is going to help you through this in such a way that you can look back on your life and be glad you didn’t give up.
As for me, I know this is true because I’ve been where you are. Imagine twenty-one health care professionals surrounding you, telling you that your baby, who has been in a horrendous car accident, would never wake up and could live for eighty years as a vegetable.
That’s what happened to me. And one of the reasons I didn’t kill myself that very night is because I knew that God loved me. I knew I could trust God, and because if I were to die, then I would never get the chance to find out how God would move in our situation.
So I waited on God.
And I’m glad I did. My baby is now 26 years old, and though she has disabilities, she has joy and purpose, even if it’s only to love and to be loved. It’s in fact the same purpose that both you and I share– to love others and to let them love us. (Sounds impossible, it’s not, but it may take some practice. Give it some time! ; )
But I’m here today to tell you that I trusted God and he got me through.
Don’t know God? Try praying this prayer.
I want to know you so that the two of us can walk through this life together. So, I am willing to follow these steps to know you; 1. First, I recognize that Jesus Christ died in my place, for my sins, so that I could wear his righteousness (not mine) and so that I can walk with you. 2. I ask Jesus to come into my life and I choose to follow him. 3. I giive you my whole life.
In Jesus Name.

Now that you’ve made your acquaintance (or reacquaintance) with God, pray this:
My life is not going the way I want. But because I’ve put my trust in you, I choose to trust you with my very life. In fact I give my life to you, and ask you to guide me through my difficulties. In fact Lord, I’d like to ask you to turn my life into a miracle. I know this may or may not happen overnight, but help me to trust you, step by step, to a life of peace and even happiness. I choose to live and I choose to trust you.
In Jesus Name.
Now, give it some time and watch as God moves in your life. If you want take our new believers Bible Study, click HERE.
By the way, in the twenty-plus years that have passed since that terrible day I almost took my life, I can tell you that I’m glad I lived. God has comforted me, and given me even greater purpose in the writing of many books that have helped thousands of people, including When You Need a Miracle, and When You Don’t Know What to Pray.
My prayer for you is, that twenty years from now, you can look back at this time you will be oh, so glad that you choose to live and to trust God.
We are praying for you.
