You Are Not the Victim

By Pamela Chapman

Why Victimization Is So Not Cool
  • It decreases your self-esteem and self-worth
  • It gives your personal power to someone else
  • It always sees life from a negative perspective – the glass half empty
  • It always self-negates and self-sabotages
  • It causes depression and fosters oppression
  • It sees discrimination and evil in every person
  • It keeps you looking back
  • It promotes weakness and dependency
  • It negates your inner abundance
  • It feeds on pain & darkness
  • It thrives and feeds on fear
  • No one wants to be around someone who is always the victim

Why Leaving Victimization is Way Cool
  • It increases your self-esteem and self-worth
  • It empowers you
  • It lets you see life from a positive perspective – the glass half full
  • It self promotes and brings about self-sufficiency and self-realization
  • It produces a fulfilling, joy-filled life
  • It acknowledges the good in every person
  • It keeps you looking forward and working toward your goals
  • It promotes happiness and good vibration
  • It helps you realize your inner abundance and realize your purpose
  • It reflects Energy & Light
  • It thrives and feeds on faith
  • Everyone wants to be with this person; in fact, they attract fabulous people

Which life would you rather live? Many of us have had bad things happen to us. All of us go through difficult life-transition at some time in our lives. Far too many have had horrendous experiences and trials. And, it is always our choice, a decision on how we go forward. Will we use the experience to help and lift others and eradicate the wrongs of systems? Will we choose to advocate for truth and justice? Or, will we just play the victim role feelings sorry for ourselves, looking for attention and sympathy; forever angry with ourselves and the world?

That abusive relationship, that injustice, that heinous crime done to you did not come as a surprise to your Creator. He knew it was going to happen. He is all knowing. He also knew He had made you strong enough to go through it. My mom has always said, “What doesn’t kill you will make you stronger.”  Well, there were times when I felt like I was going to die—I wanted to just to get out of the situation.

Just know when the crushing feels like you just can’t take it any more…when it feels like if one more “bad” thing happens it’s going to take you out, just when you plead, “God please take this cup from me,” that’s exactly when the Glory of God will come in taking you over and bringing you forward into your purpose and the calling He had for you before the foundation of this world.

Crazy, it may seem; but true. And, even in your going forward you  may fall and become the victim again, either by circumstance or because your past experiences have you believe it, is so Get Up; Brush Yourself Off; and get right back in the game of life again.

You are Not the Victim

Revelation 3:21
Those who are victorious will sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat with my Father on his throne.
