Who Said It … Nick Vujicic

Nick Vujicic is the director of Life Without Limbs, an organization that helps share the message of hope in Christ. Born without arms or legs, Nick inspires audiences around the world with his positive attitude toward overcoming obstacles and achieving dreams. Having grown up in Australia, he now lives in Southern California with his wife, Kanae, and son, Kiyoshi. He is the author of Life Without Limbs, Unstoppable, and Limitless.

What he Said … Challenges or Opportunities?

A question I'm often asked is, "Nick, how can you be so happy?"

I found happiness when I realized that as imperfect as I may be, I am the perfect Nick Vujicic. I am God's creation, designed according to his plan for me. That's not to say there isn't room for improvement. I'm always trying to be better so I can better serve God and the world.

I'm officially disabled, but I'm truly enabled because of my lack of limbs. My unique challenges have opened up remarkable opportunities to reach so many in need. You have your own challenges, and you, too, are imperfect. But you are the perfect you.

Too often we tell ourselves we aren't smart enough or attractive enough or talented enough to pursue our dreams. What's worse, when we consider ourselves unworthy, we put limits on how God can work through us.

God made you for a purpose. Therefore your life cannot be limited any more than God's love can be contained. Just imagine what is possible for you.

Prayer for the Week
Heavenly Father, help me to wake up each day with the realization that you have a plan and a purpose for my life. May I use my gifts, talents, interests, and passions to build your kingdom and to bring you glory.

The realization that we are wonderfully created should motivate us to worship God fully and with joy and happiness. For it is when we are truly content that we can achieve His desire for us
