Where is your HOPE?
CDC report shows that more than half of the people who died by suicide had no known mental health problems. A war is going on for your identity: God’s view of you and the world’s view of you. Through whose lense do you see yourself? It’s your choice.
How could this happen? Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade were successful. And famous. And seemed like great people. What went wrong?
Kate made shopping fun for women with bright, happy colors and stunning designs. Anthony opened up the world to us, bringing us into homes, introducing us to cultures and people in faraway places.
They were gateways for us. We walked through doors of adventure with them.
Yet with all their success, they suicide leave us with a clear message: at the end of fame and fortune—there is no hope.
It makes me wonder ….. How did they see themselves?
What did they say to themselves that could lead to death?
As a woman of faith, I tell you that a war is going on for your true identity: God’s view of you and the world’s view of you.
Who do YOU say you are and who does God say you are?
This podcast, Identity: Anthony Bourdain, Kate Spade and the Suicide Crisis in America opens up this discussion.
My prayers and heartfelt condolences go out to the friends and families of these precious people, Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade.
