life without limbs

September 29, 2006

I learned about a guy named Nick Vujicic this morning. Nick is a young man from Austrailia who was born with no limbs.

Not that something as trivial as having no limbs has stopped him. Nick has dedicated his life to the Lord, and is currently a motivational, Christian speaker who travels all over the world. He is also writing or has just finished a book titled, No Arms, No Legs, No Worries.

On his website he writes,

Sometimes our pain, suffering, anxiety and depression seem so much more real than the promises of God. I share how God turned my life around from a life without limbs to a LIFE WITHOUT LIMITS! God is using me in a mighty way to challenge people to claim the promise of that future and hope. As Proverbs 3:5 says to trust the Lord with all you heart without understanding the circumstances in your life. God is a good God not because of your circumstances, but because God is Faithful and will not leave you!

I love that he has not fallen victim to that lie that would call his condition a punishment for someone’s sin, or the act of a mean and angry God that you just have to love anyway.

This is a little more about Nick.

And suddenly all the little stumbling blocks I’ve ever come up against seem like pebbles.
