From Victim to Overcomer (#650)

3 Comments

It's a horrible thing to feel like someone else's victim, especially with wounds that have held on for decades. When others have been the conduit of evil to attack our lives, it is easy to get sucked into the idea that we are their perpetual victim and stay captive to whatever harm they did to us. After Wayne fills Brad in on his recent weekend in Ukraine, they find themselves in a conversation about helping others move beyond victimhood to find that God is bigger than whatever trauma others have caused them and to discover the way he would lead them to overcome. He still has joy for each of us, in spite of what others have done to us. Of course, it is really helpful when we see God as the rescuer in our story, rather than the cause of our pain by something he did or didn't do.
