YOU STILL CAN BE HAPPY
WHATEVER YOUR SITUATION MAY BE!
we think we have problems, and
we are sad... watch and read
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
it pure joy, my Brothers, whenever you face trials of many
... 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 firstborn son had been
born without limbs! There were no warnings or time to prepare
themselves for it. The doctors we 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
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
I had 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 follow
I have 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!
