If your god is so great...

Saint Thomas More


If your god is so great, and you are certain that you will join him in the afterlife, and every moment that you are apart from him is unbearable, and you are that faithful that you desire to be with him more than anything else

then

why don't you walk out into the street, aim a gun at your own head, and pull the trigger? Delaying is only making the time pass more slowly!

If you don't have a gun, don't worry, there should be plenty lying around with all those pious people departing.

If your faith is truly that strong, on the order of Saint Thomas More (above) - who disobeyed his king knowing he would be put to death for his principles then what is stopping you?

Sir Thomas More would rather die for his ideals than live without them. And he did.

If you cannot do that, then you really need to look at your own beliefs, with skepticism.  You need to examine just what is real and what isn't about your beliefs.
