Will I Be Forgiven?

Shalom in Christ…
Is it a sin if I ask God to take my life?
Will I be forgiven?
Actually, that was some stupid act I have done when I was a teen back then. I just realized it now, when I was recalling something.

Dear M,

No. God takes people’s lives all the time. He is the author of life and has that right. For you to ask Him to speed things up is no sin----so long as you don’t take matters into your own hands. For though He has that right, we do not.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
