Larry Lilly’s Letter 7-17-12

Learning To Conquer Victimitis

I don't know anyone who would want to tightly hold on to cancer, or arthritis, or… you get the idea. A serious illness upsets our peace of mind along with causing our physical, emotional and spiritual functions to be out or order, to not be moving along with ease.

The above is one area where the failure to forgive those who trespass against us plays a very important part. After giving my speech, Forgiveness Trumps Psychological Issues to a group of senior citizens an elderly lady handed me this:

"Forgiveness is to let go of dis-eases and victimitis, and to grow."

I thought about this vignette for several days and it makes sense to me when the word dis-ease is used in this manner. To lay awake at night and fume during the day about the trespasses that have been committed against you does in fact lead to serious bitterness and thus hinder and cause serious harm to our trichotomous nature. No rest in the inner person damages the outer part. Simply letting go can make an enormous difference in our health and quality of life.

As long as a person is playing the victim card, healing flees. I like the term in today’s quote, victimitis. Romans 8:37 "Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us." Teaching we are not victims but by God's grace we are victors over life’s tough events.
