Sometimes I am a bit of a nerd. (I don’t care…I’m cool with it). Statistics about things interest me. Since we have worked in foster care there are many stats about children that have been in foster care. I’ve read the stats.
For example, there is a statistic that children who end up in foster care, will most likely have their children end up in some type of stint in foster care.
There are stats about everything.
There are times when we have to decide that we aren’t going to be a stat.
Maybe your stat is that your parents were alcoholics which statistically, you have a much higher chance of being an alcoholic.
Maybe you were abused…does that mean you have to be an abuser?
A friend of mine, who has adopted children was quoted a statistic. Her children were victims and she was told they will likely become abusers.
I was thinking about this…what’s different in their situation?
God…God is what is different.
Do not let statistics be the lie you believe.
Our God is bigger than the statistics. Our God is bigger. If the God you serve isn’t bigger then you need to take this opportunity to magnify Him. Make Him a little bit bigger in your eyes! He can handle you, your situation, your pain, your grief, your anger. He’s bigger than all of it!
