you think you have problems and then there is God
This young man
is absolutely astounding! He has chosen to allow God to not only
work in him, but has committed himself to allowing God to work through him .
WOW ! ! !
Scroll down and see all the pictures and read all the words .
My name is Nick Vujicic and I give God the Glory
for how He has used my testimony to touch thousands of hearts around the world ! I was born without limbs and doctors have no
medical explanation for this birth " defect " . As you can imagine , I was faced with many challenges and obstacles .
" Consider it pure joy , my Brothers , whenever you face trials of many kinds . "
To count our hurt, pain
and struggle as nothing but pure joy ? As my parents were Christians , and my Dad even a Pastor of our church , they knew that verse very well. However , on the morning of the
4th of December 1982 in Melbourne ( Australia ) , the last two words on the minds of my parents
was " Praise God ! " . Their first born son had been born without limbs !
no warnings or time to prepare themselves for it . The doctors were shocked and had no answers at
all ! There is still
no medical reason why this had happened and Nick now has a Brother and Sister
who were born just like any other baby .
The whole church mourned over my
birth and my parents were absolutely devastated. Everyone asked , " if God is
a God of Love , then why would God let something this bad happen to not just
anyone , but dedicated Christians ?
My Dad thought I wouldn't survive
for very long , but tests proved that I was a healthy baby boy just with a few
limbs missing ..
" And we know that in all things God works for the best for
those who love Him ." That
verse spoke to my heart and convicted me to the point where that I know that
there is no such thing as luck , chance or coincidence that these " bad " things happen in our life .
complete peace knowing that God won't let anything happen to us in our life
unless He has a good purpose for it all . I completely gave my life to Christ at the age of fifteen after
reading John 9 . Jesus said that
the reason the man was born blind was " so that the works of God may be revealed through
Him . " I truly believed that God would heal me so
I could be a great testimony of His Awesome Power . Later on I was given the wisdom to understand
that if we pray for something , if it's God's will , it'll happen in His time . If it's not God's will for it to happen , then I know that He has something better .
I now see
that Glory revealed as He is using me just the way I am and in ways others
can't be used .
I am now
twenty-three years old and have completed a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in
Financial Planning and Accounting . I am also a motivational speaker and love to go out and share my story
and testimony wherever opportunities become available . I have developed talks to relate to and
encourage students through topics that challenge today's teenagers . I am also a speaker in the corporate sector .
I have a passion for reaching out to youth and
keep myself available for whatever God wants me to do, and wherever He leads, I
many dreams and goals that I have set to achieve in my life. I want to become
the best witness I can be of God's Love and Hope , to become an international
inspirational speaker and be used as a vessel in both Christian and
non-Christian venues. I want to become financially independent by the age of
25, through real estate investments, to modify a car for me to drive and to be
interviewed and share my story on the " Oprah Winfrey Show "! Writing
several best-selling books has been one of my dreams and I hope to finish
writing my first by the end of the year. It will be called "No Arms, No
Legs, No Worries!"
I believe that if you have the desire and passion
to do something, and if it's God's will, you will achieve it in good time. As
humans, we continually put limits on ourselves for no reason at all! What's
worse is putting limits on God who can do all things. We put God in a
"box". The awesome thing about the Power of God, is that if we want
to do something for God, instead of focusing on our capability, concentrate on
our availability for we know that it is God through us and we can't do anything
without Him. Once we make ourselves available for God's work, guess whose
capabilities we rely on? God's!
May the Lord Bless you In Christ ,
ONLY FEAR IN LIFE IS THAT I FORGET HOW GOD HAS LED ME IN THE
WHEN YOU'RE BUSY JUDGING PEOPLE, YOU HAVE NO TIME TO LOVE THEM.
