>Stop Thinking Like a Victim!

>As I continue to kick myself in the rear for complaining too much about my wounded eye; the following applied directly to me as I got it from PHIL COOKE:

____ happens. The world isn’t fair. I wish it was, but it’s not. So let’s get over it. Quit looking for pity, sympathy, or a shoulder to cry on. Most important – stop sharing your problems with people who can’t help you solve them. Quit wasting your time wallowing in your distress or having rambling conversations about all the people out to get you. It’s not helping you get out. Obviously, there are times we need help, but in most cases, you don’t need anyone’s sympathy, you need a new attitude. The minute you start thinking like a victim is the minute you give away your power and your confidence. Move on. You have too much potential to get stuck in that rut.

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
