In Glasgow, Scotland, a woman went into a hotel. She was totally broken, in despair and she desired to die. In her room, she closed the door and opened the gas connected to the heater so that it would fill the room and cause her to suffocate and die.
She sat on a chair in a state of despair, when she noticed a book on a table. She picked it up, opened it and started reading. It says,
“You are not your own. For you were bought at a price” (1 Cor. 6.19-20).
The lady realized that her life was not hers but it belonged to God. She got up, ran to shut off the gas and opened the room door to let the gas out. She then kneeled to God and asked fervently for His heavenly condolence.
Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
You are not mine,
But the Lord bought you at a price.
He died for you to give you glory.
Wait on the Lord.
Wash your Mouth
