I don’t think that one could easily comfort somebody who is that much distressed and suicidal. I have tried talking to someone in the same circumstance, yet doesn’t want to heed any of my advice. It’s too hard to really change someone’s mind, especially the mind of someone who feels so tired, helpless and hopeless.
But maybe you could try sharing this, problems are inevitable, situations can become too toxic and worst to handle that we always come across thinking of giving up. God doesn’t want you to just end there. He will always send people to help you out in times of need, you just have to be brave enough to accept the help coming from other people — that help I believe is necessary to be coming from you. I admire you for having the initiative to help your online friend, and God is using you to save your online friend’s life.
I advise that you do not give up. I know you might feel tired of always cheering that person up, but beloved this I ask of you, that no matter how hard the situation turns out, and how stiff-necked that person is to listening to your voice, and God’s voice, I pray that you do not stop encouraging that person. He/she may be in the worst scenario of his/her life right now, but God is a God of great breakthroughs, He only knows what could become of him/her next year. I just pray that that person continues to live on and see what God has for him/her after the great storm he/she has had to go through. I STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT PROBLEMS ARE NEVER PERMANENT, IF ONLY HE/SHE BECOMES STRONG AND BRAVE ENOUGH IN CHRIST, YOUR FRIEND WILL OVERCOME.
Someday, your friend will look back to where he formerly was and say ‘I made it’. And you’d be happy that you kept your friend alive because you never gave up on him/her. YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO GIVES YOU STRENGTH. Do not doubt what He could do for you, and your friend. ♥
