Life Without Limits

During my summer vacation I always have my list of books to read and this summer was no different.  However I found myself pushing them aside and focusing on a book I randomly picked up at the bookstore.  I had seen Nick Vujicic many times on clips on YouTube and read articles that people had written about him so when I saw his book Life Without Limits I decided to buy it.

Part of the synopsis of the book states:
 Born without arms or legs, Nick Vujicic overcame his disabilities to live an independent, rich, fulfilling, and “ridiculously good life” while serving as a role model for anyone seeking true happiness.
As I read the book I was totally captivated by Nick’s attitude. I was also inspired by his determination to find his place in life in spite of his limbless body.

What I liked about the book is that Nick doesn’t hide the fact that he had times when he struggled.  He had times when he questioned, why?  He had times when he was despondent and considered giving up.  In fact there was a time when he actually contemplated suicide, but thankfully he never followed through.

Today Nick inspires many as a motivational speaker.  He reminds people that no matter what their circumstances are God has a purpose for their lives.

Nick’s message in this book is simply that you CAN live a life without limits if you trust in God.

Below is a short clip of one of Nick's motivational messages.

Everyday is a Day of Thanksgiving

I was listening to some music today when the song Everyday is a Day of Thanksgiving came on. The chorus of the song said,

Everyday is a day of thanksgiving.
God has been so good to me.
Everyday He’s blessing me.
Everyday is a day of thanksgiving:
Take the time to glorify the Lord today…

As I sang along with the song I was reminded of a New Year’s resolution I had made a few years ago...

I'm at Laced With Grace Today.  I'd love it if you'd stop by and read the rest of my post Everyday is a Day of Thanksgiving.

Trusting Him,
