Sunday Music: Church Of Rhythm | Life Is Worth Fight For

Life is tough!

Life does feel like a merry-go-round at times.

Sometimes it is spinning so fast you feel like a flag hanging on to a pole by a thread.

And I for one wanted off that merry-go-round when I was a teen. Yes, that’s right! There was a time when I thought of ending it all.

I tried. I just didn’t cut deep enough.

My best friend had a gun to his head. God intervened.

Some of my friends were, sadly, successful 😥

The thing is…I’ve been there.

I’ve had those thoughts were I felt the world would be better without me in it. Where I felt alone and no one cared.

But that was just the depression talking. I did have people who cared.

And had I succeeded my life would have ended. No marriage, no Brandon or Erin and the pain of having me gone would have made so many people sad and hurting for the rest of their lives.

Yeah, life still sucks at times. I have grieved. I have loved. I have slept in a friend’s shed. I have laughed. I have cried.

Some days I didn’t want to get out of bed. Some days I didn’t…I just slept.

And through all those up and downs God has been doing His thing to bring me where I am in life. To a point where I truly appreciate life.

But, what about the others in this world who do not know Christ? What about our brothers and sisters who do know Christ and yet are having suicidal thoughts right now?

Will anyone be there for them?

Will anyone let them know that life IS worth fighting for?

Will anyone hold their hand while they begin their journey to healing?

I hope so. Because someone was there for me. And I have been there for others.

That’s what the church is here for right? To help save a dying world…whether physically or spiritually.

We should be a beacon of hope. A light in the darkness. Sharing the love of Christ with those in desperate need of that love!

  1. Wow Stu! I’m so glad you shared this! That song made me tear up! God is so amazing!!…I wrote something along the same lines Sunday, too! …Unity in the Spirit perhaps? I was trying to take a nap, and I felt the need to write it, with tears flowing. People needed to hear this! Thanks so much for sharing your story brother!

    1. God does that from time to time. I’ve always thought it amazing when the Holy Spirit prompts several to write on a similar topic at the same time 🙂 I need to catch up on my reading and read yours! It is a very powerful song. The first Tim I heard I immediately sent it to my friend, of course it was years after we had both tried.

  2. Reblogged this on ♡Heart Tokens♡ and commented:
    God is truly amazing in this things He does! He is a mystery at times, and His ways are past finding out! But she always has a purpose and plan. I pray this message reaches the person it was meant for, because He laid this subject on two of us on the same day here on WP. Here’s Stu’s story. I am so thankful that you are still with us brother, living to tell your testimony with boldness! It’s a very powerful testimony! Read it for yourself!
