Poznati američki pastor Jarrid Wilson (30) počinio je samoubojstvo u ponedjeljak navečer. Njegove tekstove smo rado prevodili i objavljivali na našem portalu.
Pobožni suprug i otac dvoje djece bio je poznat po svom strastvenom propovijedanju, srcu sluge i zalaganju za mentalno bolesne.
Zapravo, Wilson je osnivač Anthem of Hope, organizacije utemeljene na vjeri za one koje se bore s depresijom, tjeskobama, ovisnostima i suicidnim mislima.
Tragične vijesti o Wilsonovoj preranoj smrti stigle su na Dan svijesti o samoubojstvu (10. rujna).

Can I get real with you for a minute? The past month has been really stinkin’ tough. I’m a chill, happy go lucky person through and through, and I try to always look on the bright side and give the benefit of the doubt. But guess what? I go through times of darkness too. It’s a part of life and yes, part of the Christian walk as well . My heart hurts for some of my closest family and friends right now. They are going through unexplainable things and I wish I could make it all go away . I’m human, friends, and I’ve found myself crying out to God in the last few weeks begging for answers to questions I can’t quite express. I’m not sharing this for sympathy, just letting y’all know that life isn’t always Instagram perfect. (Did you just sigh a breath of relief?) It’s hard sometimes and it doesn’t always make sense . Here’s the good news: We serve a gracious and loving Heavenly Father that has good plans for each and every one of us. He’s not out to get us. He’s not looking to destroy us. His goal for us is holiness, and sometimes that means allowing us to be knocked down so we can learn to let Him lift us back up. He is more than enough for your longing heart, my friend. Let him fill you up . The testing of our faith produces perseverance. Keep up the good fight. Run the race. Keep pouring out love. Give with all you’ve got. And remember: when life knocks you down, look up. God is there. He cares . And for what it’s worth, I believe in you, too. You have so much to offer this world. Don’t buy the lie that you don’t. We need who you are. Exactly who you are. Keep showing up. It makes all the difference. ♥️
U skladu sa svojom strašću da razbije stigmu oko mentalnog zdravlja, Wilson je često govorio o svojim vlastitim borbama s depresijom na profilima društvenih mreža.
Kasnije tog popodneva pastor Wilson je napisao tešku istinu o stvarnosti borbe s kojom se suočava, navodeći da iako Isus nije uvijek “lijek”, on je uvijek “utješitelj” i “suputnik”.
Loving Jesus doesn’t always cure suicidal thoughts.
Loving Jesus doesn’t always cure depression.
Loving Jesus doesn’t always cure PTSD.
Loving Jesus doesn’t always cure anxiety.
But that doesn’t mean Jesus doesn’t offer us companionship and comfort.
He ALWAYS does that.

“Voljeti Isusa ne liječi uvijek samoubilačke misli”, napisao je Wilson. „Voljeti Isusa ne liječi uvijek depresiju. Voljeti Isusa ne liječi uvijek PTSP. Voljeti Isusa ne liječi uvijek anksioznost. Ali to ne znači da nam Isus ne nudi društvo i utjehu. UVIJEK to čini.”, napisao je pokojni 30-godišnji pastor.
