Feeling Down, Need A HUGE Inspiration?
Posted by Christine Smith-Johnson
No matter what you are going through, you will be okay. Sometimes life seems very unfair to some of us and we may never understand why. We may never have our answers but we have to keep faith. I was recently touched by an individual that made my problems seem so small. I have always said, when our problems seem big, there is always someone, somewhere, worse off. I believe in praying for people who hurt me and I try to do good. I am saved and I realize, I will never be perfect, but sometimes life throws a punch so big, we have a hard time getting back up.
I could not sleep one night and was channel surfing, when I heard a message that glued my eyes to the television. He had me laughing and crying at the same time. He knows all our pains. His name was Nick Vujicic. He is a preacher with no arms or legs, no limbs. He had the biggest smile and was such a beautiful person. My heart ached for him and rejoiced at the same time. He was born without arms and legs and begged God his whole life, for the miracle of arms and legs. He said he finally understood what God meant when He impressed on him, “No Nick, I am not delivering your miracle…YOU… are the miracle!”
Nick swims, surfs, plays golf, runs up stairs, he truly is a miracle. He shows us how he plays jokes on others and how he does things for himself. He is so adorable! You will fall in love with him instantly. He teaches us how to manage our problems. It doesn’t get any greater than this!
He, obviously, has been a preacher for many years. I never heard of him before now but you can bet within days, I found every one of his videos online. He was wearing jeans and a blue and white plaid shirt and was on ATF ministries. That was my favorite message of all the ones I viewed. Most of them are very short, to short for me. I am always left with wanting more. It will touch your heart, it will make you cry, and it will make you laugh. He is so funny! He finds the comical side of his situation, which to me, is amazing. Here we are, half of us, feeling sorry for ourselves at times and then you find Nick… He will truly bless you. Please listen to his message, no matter what you are going through. You will never be the same again.
You can find him everywhere by searching on Google, YouTube, and GodTube. The video I mentioned above with the funny stuff in it can be found by going to YouTube and searching his name, Nick Vujicic, ATF series. There are three series, part 1, 2, and 3. The funny stuff is in the beginning of part 1. His personal website is www.LifeWithoutLimbs.org but please watch his video first on YouTube. You will never be the same again. He touches your heart like no other.
I am not being paid in any way to share Nick’s story with you. Nick does not even know I exist. I did sign up on his website but that’s as far as it goes. I only want you to find your happiness no matter what you are going through. Please feel free to come back and let me know what you think. I would love to see if others love him as much as I do and if he inspired you. He was such a light for me and I would love the opportunity for all of us to meet him someday. Every time I think about him, all I can do is say “Wow!” He leaves me speechless. I pray he touches you and gives you the strength to accomplish anything you are dreaming of.
