Summary: For young people. There is hope, & a light at the end of the tunnel. Don’t give up. WE NEED TO FIGHT FOR OUR YOUNG PEOPLE LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
I RECEVIED PART OF THIS MESSAGE FROM SOMEONE. I CAN NOT REMEMBER. I HAVE ADDED TO IT & CHANGED IT. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR OUR YOUNG PEOPLE.
Don’t Stop Fighting 1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
I’m 11 & I don’t want to live anymore.
Hi. I am very young but I want to die already! I hate my life! I am 11 years old. I know I cannot live more! I just want to know what is the less painful & easiest way to die. I don’t want my life anymore! I have to die! I just can’t look into my future. I love my parents but, I can’t carry on with this life!! My life is pure s***!!!! I hate my life, all my cousins are Goths. Well I thought of kind of like joining in with them. I don’t know if I should believe in God or not. My life is a pure misunderstanding.
I’m 14, depressed & see no reason to live.
Hi. Look I am 14 almost 15 & well I am depressed. Marjory depressed. I have no life. I mean come on. I have no friends. I am picked because my appearance is different. Soccer practices are really crappy (I get made fun of, tripped, soccer balls are kicked at me, & the rest of it.). My parents are constantly yelling at me. I lock my self in my room & think of ways of suicide. I have tried suicide once but I couldn’t go through with it. Basically I tried cutting my throat. I am supposedly catholic. But I don’t understand anything. I have researched other religions and they seem "fake" too. There is like only one thing that I understand. It is more of a culture not a religion & it is Goth. I mean I love arts, music. I live my life in the dark, & so on. I don’t know what to do. I am lost in this world. And I know that I won’t understand it. All I think about now is suicide. My school grades are low. I don’t do any work, & all the teachers hate me. I know that a 14-year-old person should be having the time of their life & stuff But I’m not. I try to live my life as long as I can but my efforts will fall short soon. I know it.
1.Sometimes we may feel like our life isn’t worth fighting for.
Young People give up everyday
They give up everyday on life
For every two murders in the U.S. there are three suicides
Every hour & forty-five minutes another young person commits suicide
They give up everyday on school
In 2000, approx. 31% of students dropped out of High School They give up everyday on purity
Eight hundred-twenty thousand (820,000) teen girls get pregnant each year. 34% of young women get pregnant at least once before they turn 20.
They give up everyday on families
50% of first marriages ended in divorce in 2007
People give up everyday on God
71% of the teenagers who go to church will stop going by the age of 20.
There are many reasons why young people give up.
Death of a loved one
Wasn’t pretty enough
Wasn’t skinny enough Can’t make any friends Boyfriend/girlfriend broke up with them
Family moved & lost all old friends
People give up everyday. People stop fighting everyday.
NOW YOU KNOW WHY I FIGHT FOR FAMILIES. THIS IS ONLY 2 GIRLS. THEY ALL NEED JESUS. WE AS A CHURCH MUST TAKE JESUS TO THEM.
1 Timothy 6:12 says, Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
“Fight the good fight for what we believe.” I believe in young people. I believe they can be helped. We will want to reach out. The 1st step to a good life is Jesus. They must get the Lord in their hearts. Only the Lord can calm their hearts down & give them peace. John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
1 Timothy 6:12 also talks about, “Hold tightly to the eternal life that God has given you…”
We know that fights are bad. So what is this “good fight?”
It’s a fight to stay faithful to God Sounds simple enough.
