Question 3: How do you know when you're in bondage to faulty thinking?

Loading the player

Victims are speaking up and being heard like never before. Slammed across news channels and social media sites are horrific stories of bullying, inappropriate sexual behavior, domestic violence, and human trafficking, to name just a few. While these experiences are horrible, they offer something revolutionary.

Raised in the deep south, James E. Ward Jr. never saw someone of another race or color until elementary school. James had a choice—the same one we all have when life is far from fair or just. His choice changed the entire direction of his life. Do you want to live as a victim, or do you want a different outcome? This interview addresses how to find liberty, happiness, and life regardless of what we have endured.

The fastest way to be miserable is to have a victim mind-set. Dwell on what is unjust, on your sorrows and suffering, on what’s wrong and you will surely never be happy or free. However, you have a choice. When you reframe and renew your mind and establish your thoughts on what is right and true, there is no limit to what God can do in and through you. Regardless of our culture, you can live a life of victory, joy, and true peace. How can you incorporate a zero-victim mentality into your life today? What’s holding you back?
