Sooo I have been feeling down and out lately..with all my health problems..I feel my body is shutting down..I dont let my family and friends know the pain ive been in..or the troubles i have been having..but im angry that this is happening to me..im tired of hurting..im tired of being ohh soo tired...and some day i just wish i would just die and get it over with..the suffering truley is the worst part and no one knows how long i really have..Soooo..then I stumbled upon this wonderful story about this man that was born without legs or arms..and no one knows why..So i would liek to share this story with you and everyone that ever feels like life just isnt worth it..or that life cant get any worse when it can...if u would like to talk about whats been on ur mind..or if u have been depressed...or ill lend an ear like u just did..and what did u think about this story..and did it mean to you personally if anything? btw....he speaks on The Hour of Power and he speaks about living a positive life. He is an inspiration and we can all learn from him. He was on the show about a month or so ago. If you want to hear it, you can go to www.hourofpower.org and find his name and listen to it. It would be worth it. These are some words from his speech i would love to share with you... "My name is Nick Vujicic and 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 obstacles. Their firstborn son had been born without limbs! There were no warnings or time to prepare themselves for it. The doctors were 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. I know that there is no such thing as luck, chance or coincidence that these 'bad' things happen in ou! r life. I had complete peace knowing that God won't let anything happen to us in our life unless God has a good purpose for it all 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 t! o youth and keep myself available for whatever God wants me to do, and wherever He leads, I follow. 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 God. Once we make ourselves available for God's work, guess whose capabilities we rely on? God's! "

That is a great story, yes God has a purpose for everything. You are so brave and you has a lot of faith. You don't have a limbs but you accomplished many things already, you achieve more than a normal people can do. Physical things doesn't matter if you want something then go for it as long as you can do it and you do it in the right way. By sharing your story you give me more inspiration for nor giving up immediately. In life we need to be strong for our love ones and for our selves also we really need God in our life. The power of him undefinable and we need to do is trust all to him and he do everything for our own good and benefit. I was happy to read your story a man without limbs but he accomplished many things because of his desire in doing it and the faith you have to our God. Very nice and Moving story... Hope you can continue your purpose that was we were here for. Happy posting.... God Bless.
