If you have not seen Nick Vujicic (founder of Life Without Limbs ) on YouTube or elsewhere, I highly recommend you watch him. You will be inspired. Despite having been born without limbs, Nick has decided to just be thankful – no matter his circumstances. He embodies the verse, "For I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content."~ Phillippians 4:11
He admonishes others, instead of dwelling on what you don’t have, acknowledge where you are at and start from there.
Below are a few of my favorite Nick Vujicic quotes:
"We can’t and should not compare sufferings."
"There’s two things in life that we want to hear as human beings: first of all, that we’re loved; second of all, everything is going to be OK."
"When things happen in your life that you don’t understand the purpose, …is God worthy of your thanks, is God still worthy of your praise, your thanks?"
"Circumstances do not have to change for you to become victorious. It’s our heart that needs to be filled with the Holy Spirit."
"The way you see your life and where you are going will determine how successful you will be in life."
" Your priorities, you daily agenda will determine how successful you are."
I praise God that I know Jesus because He does love me and has filled me with the Holy Spirit who reassures me that everything is going to be OK. And God loves you, too! He sent His only Son to die and take your sin debt so you wouldn’t have to pay by suffering eternal separation from God but could go to heaven instead.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. ~ Romans 5:8 He always loves you this much. He is waiting for you now. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. ~ Romans 10:13
