Suicide Note From A Troubled Man
As I sit here to write this letter, I think about my life and all the mistakes I’ve made. I’ve hurt people, I’ve misled people, I’ve had fun at the expense of people. I am a terrible person. I have tried many ways to make myself feel better and to make myself be what I thought would be better. None of them worked. Now, I see only one way out. To end it all – To kill myself. I want to say goodbye to all I have called my friends, but were probably just my acquaintances. I am about to go on to a new life. One that is not of this world. One where all the problems and struggles of this life will never be the same. You may continue to remember me, but you won’t find my body. I plan to be buried deep. I will drown myself and all my old ways. I’m leaving it all behind. I’m giving my life to Christ by being “baptized into His death.”
“Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
James C. Guy
P.S. I have actually already done that (in 1979), but maybe this little illustration will encourage others to do this as well and to remind us all of what should take place when we die to our old lives.
