Yesterday here in the US, we found out that a beloved actor took his own life. Robin Williams who was one of the funniest men alive, for whatever reason, gave up on life.
I have never met Robin Williams in person. But I have watched him on tv shows and in movies since I was a little girl. He was funny. He just seemed to be a natural. Some of his acting jobs were serious ones, but he was best known for his comedy.
How can someone so famous and rich take his life?
I think that is just proof that money and fame can not make you happy.
Happiness is based on circumstances anyway.
What we need is unending JOY! Joy that comes from God the Father and no one else. Joy that is accompanied with peace. You know, that peace that passes all understanding mentioned in the Bible? It's real. I have felt it.
There are so many people who care and love you. If you are thinking about taking your own life, please don't! Talk to someone. Get help.
You are here for a reason! God has a purpose and plan for your life. He loves you so very much. Think before you do something that can not be undone.
I pray that anyone struggling today will get help. And I pray that as a nation, as we mourn this American icon, that suicide prevention will be mentioned and we will see how bad this really is.
Thankfully, God promises to comfort those who mourn. He always keeps His promises.
Rest in Peace, Robin Williams. You will be missed.
