How to stop contemplating suicide?

I feel so lonely. I can't stop crying and I can't live any longer. The only thing I look foward to now is heaven and meeting with God.

    Take these immediate actions:

    If you’re feeling suicidal at this moment, please follow these five steps:

    Step #1: Promise not to do anything right now

    Even though you’re in a lot of pain right now, give yourself some distance between thoughts and action. Make a promise to yourself: “I will wait 24 hours and won’t do anything drastic during that time.” Or, wait a week.

    Thoughts and actions are two different things—your suicidal thoughts do not have to become a reality. There is no deadline, no one’s pushing you to act on these thoughts immediately. Wait. Wait and put some distance between your suicidal thoughts and suicidal action.

    Step #2: Avoid drugs and alcohol

    Suicidal thoughts can become even stronger if you have taken drugs or alcohol. It is important to not use nonprescription drugs or alcohol when you feel hopeless or are thinking about suicide.

    Step #3: Make your home safe

    Remove things you could use to hurt yourself, such as pills, knives, razors, or firearms. If you are unable to do so, go to a place where you can feel safe. If you are thinking of taking an overdose, give your medicines to someone who can return them to you one day at a time as you need them.

    Step #4: Don’t keep these suicidal feelings to yourself

    Many of us have found that the first step to coping with suicidal thoughts and feelings is to share them with someone we trust. It may be a family member, friend, therapist, member of the clergy, teacher, family doctor, coach, or an experienced counselor at the end of a helpline.

    Find someone you trust and let them know how bad things are. Don’t let fear, shame, or embarrassment prevent you from seeking help. And if the first person you reach out to doesn’t seem to understand, try someone else. Just talking about how you got to this point in your life can release a lot of the pressure that’s building up and help you find a way to cope.

    Step #5: Take hope – people DO get through this

    Even people who feel as badly as you are feeling now manage to survive these feelings. Take hope in this. There is a very good chance that you are going to live through these feelings, no matter how much self-loathing, hopelessness, or isolation you are currently experiencing. Just give yourself the time needed and don’t try to go it alone.

    doing that won't get you to heaven

    Many people can relate to your feelings, and some of them have contemplated—or attempted—suicide. But there are at least 3 resons WHY KEEP LIVING.

    The FIRST ONE is because THINGS CHANGE. Suicide has been called “a permanent solution to a temporary problem.” As hard as it may be to believe, a distressing circumstance—even one that seems beyond your control—may well be temporary. In fact, it can change for the better unexpectedly.

    Even if that does not happen, it is best to tackle your problems one day at a time. “Never be anxious about the next day,” Jesus said, “for the next day will have its own anxieties. Each day has enough of its own troubles.”—Matthew 6:34.

    But what if your circumstance cannot change? Even in such cases, there is something you can change: your outlook on the situation. By learning to accept what you cannot change, you become more likely to view things from a more positive standpoint. (Proverbs 15:15) You are also more likely to look for ways to cope with the situation rather than resort to drastic means to end it. The result? You start to take a measure of control of what seems to be an uncontrollable situation.—Job 2:10.

    REMEMBER THIS: You cannot scale a mountain in a single step; however, you can take on the challenge one step at a time. The same is true of most obstacles you face, no matter how mountainlike they might seem to be.

    WHAT YOU CAN DO TODAY: Talk to someone—perhaps a friend, a professional specialist or a family member—about your situation. That person may be able to help you view your situation in a more balanced way.—Proverbs 11:14.

    Last I heard (and I used to teach Bible study at the HS level) suicide is a mortal sin.  So if you really believe in a god, then you might want to reconsider suicide because heaven will not be where you'll end up is you kill yourself.

    You need to call a suicide hotline. They can talk to you and put you in touch with other people. Trust me--from one who has contemplated it--it DOES get better.
