(Eccl 7:17) Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time?
Jesus is the best help for this, or any problem, big or small. If you have not trusted in Jesus as Lord and Savior, please go to our Plan of Salvation link to ask Jesus into your life to help. If you are a Christian, then trust in God's promises in the Bible and use them. When Jesus was tested and tried by Satan for 40 days in (Mt 4:1-11)(Lk 4:1-13) He quoted scripture each time to overcome saying, "it is written." A great way to do this is to write down God's promises regarding whatever problems you are facing and place them all over your house. Look at them, and quote them out loud, they are your weapon, your strength, and your encouragement.
The Bible says:
(1 Cor 6:19-20) Our lives belong to God and He paid a price for them.
(Jer 29:11) God has a good plan for each of His children.
(Mt 10:29-31)(Lk 12:6-7) God has the very hairs of your head numbered and says your life is valuable.
(Phil 4:19) God is able to supply all of our needs.
(Jn 10:10) Jesus said He came to give us abundant life.
(Mt 19:19) We are to love our neighbors as OURSELVES.
(Ps 55:22) Cast your burdens on the Lord and He will sustain you.
(Mt 11:29-30) Jesus said My yoke is easy and My burden is light.
(1 Cor 12:9) The Lord said my grace is sufficient for you, and my strength is made perfect in weakness.
(Ex 20:13) The sixth commandment says not to murder, this includes ourselves.
(2 Tim 4:6-8,18) Paul speaks of fighting through all trials and was looking
forward to receiving a crown of righteousness for doing so.
(NOTE: I would refer you to our link on Paul's Trials to see what He suffered through)
(Ps 34:18-19)(NASB) The Lord is near to the brokenhearted And saves those who are crushed in spirit. (19) Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all.
Some of the mightiest men in the Bible wanted to die, including, Job (Job 7:15-16), Jeremiah (Jer 20:14-18), and David (Ps 13:1-2), but they persevered through their trials, and God used each of them in a mighty way and blessed them.
For more verses I would refer you to our link: Rejoice in tribulation and persecution.
If you are contemplating suicide, PLEASE seek help from others. Talk to a pastor, or teacher, or counselor, or loved one. There ARE people who care about you, and love you, and want to help, and they would be devastated if you were no longer in their life. God loves you and Jesus gave His life for you.
(Phil 4:7) And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
