Nick Vujicic was born without any arms or legs. His “disability” was unexpected and a complete surprise to his parents and the doctors. When Nick shares his testimony he explains how there were struggles growing up, but through choice and perspective he has chosen to live a life without limits. He attributes his ability to choose a life without limits to God, who provides him with strength to overcome the impossible.
Choice empowers us to live without limits
After struggle with suicidal thoughts as a young man, Nick Vujicic decided – he made a choice – to make his life count. He could choose to view his physical limitations as a burden or a blessing. His powerful choice to view them as a blessing help launch him into a successful career as an international speaker. Today, Nick travels the globe offering hope through his story.
It was his choice to live a life without limits, a life that mattered to God and others. Nick’s choice to believe he mattered is what powerfully impacted the trajectory of his life!
Finding perspective in the midst of difficulty
Psalm 139:13-14 says, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
The perspective we take in life largely effect how we experience life. Nick often refers to this verse when sharing his testimony. God helped him to shift the lens through which he viewed his life. The truth in Psalm 139 was true about Nick too. He “was fearfully and wonderfully made“. Nick could choose to believe the Word of God over his life, there is choice again, or he could live life through the perspective the enemy was trying to feed him.
What will you take away from Nick’s story?
Is there a situation or circumstance that is one choice away from shifting the trajectory of your life? As you’ve read through this article, is there a situation or circumstance that keeps coming to mind? Is there a situation or circumstance that could come to life with a change in perspective?
Take a moment and ask the Lord to speak to your heart. Remember, you are fearfully and wonderfully made too!
