Some who have been victimized by a painful past feel fearful, lost, disconnected, broken, without hope and need comforting.
There are many self help groups in modern day society offering support for victims. While helpful they often throw a "victim" label on the wounded, and it becomes their identity.
Some even take on a victim mentality always positioning themselves as the victim whether real or imagined. We did not have a choice in becoming a victim but we have a choice in staying one.
The bible says "we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us." (Romans 8:37) No matter what has happened God can heal, restore and set us free from the painful effects of the past. You can rise above having a victim mentality and become a conqueror in Christ. You are not without hope.
