World Suicide Prevention Day

Today Belinda and I are wearing yellow in honor of World Suicide Prevention Day.  Yellow is the color that represents suicide prevention.  This is also National Suicide Prevention Week in the United States.  The heartbreaking truth is that every 14.2 minutes someone dies in the United States by suicide.  As a family who has been affected by this tragedy we understand the pain involved.  Belinda's father took his own life over two years ago and while God has done a great work in us and brought healing, we still have a long way to go.  Today we are praying for anyone who has been affected, that God will work in their hearts and provide healing that only He can.  We are also praying for those who may be considering this, praying that they will turn to God for the comfort and strength they need.  I pray that they will see how only God offers all the answers that we can not find on our own.
