Living Inspiration

Nick Vujicic gives God the Glory for how He has used him to touch thousands of hearts around the world! He was born without limbs and doctors have no medical explanation for this birth “defect”. As you can imagine, He was faced with many challenges and obstacles.

On the morning of the 4th of December 1982 in Melbourne (Australia), the first-born 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 Brother and Sister who were born just like any other baby.

The friends and relatives mourned over his birth and his parents were absolutely devastated. Everyone asked, “if God is a God of Love, then why would God let something this bad happen to not just anyone, but dedicated Christians?” His father thought he wouldn’t survive for very long, but tests proved that he was a healthy baby boy just with a few limbs missing Understandably, his parents had strong concern and evident fears of what kind of life he’d be able to lead.

The law in Australia didn’t allow him to be integrated into a mainstream school because of his physical disability. His mother fought for the law to be changed. He was one of the first disabled students to be integrated into a mainstream school.

He liked going to school, and just try to live life like everyone else, but it was in his early years of school where he encountered uncomfortable times of feeling rejected, weird and bullied because of his physical difference. It was very hard for him to get used to, but with the support of his parents, he started to develop attitudes and values, which helped him, overcome these challenging times. He knew that he was different challenging times. He knew that he was different but on the inside he was just like everyone else. There were many times when he felt so low that he wouldn’t go to school so that he would not have to face all the negative attention. He was encouraged by his parents to ignore them and to try start-making friends by just talking with some kids. Soon the students realized that he was just like them and they began to accept him as friends.

There were times when he felt depressed and angry because he couldn’t change the way he was, or blame anyone for that matter, He thought out of all the kids at school, He’s the only weird one. He felt like he was a burden to those around him and the sooner he goes, the better it’d be for everyone. He even wanted to end his pain by ending his life at a young age, but he was thankful once again, for his parents and family who were always there to comfort him and give him strength.

living inspirationDue to his emotional struggles he had experienced with bullying, self-esteem and loneliness, Nick says “God has implanted a passion of sharing my story and experiences to help others cope with what ever challenge they have in their life and let God turn it into a blessing. To encourage and inspire others it live to their fullest potential and not let anything get in the way of accomplishing their hopes and dreams.

On of the first lessons that I have learnt was not to take things for granted”. “ I know that there is no such thing as luck, chance or coincidence that these “bad” things happen in our life.

“I had complete peace knowing that God won’t let anything happen to us in our life unless He has a good purpose for it all.” He’s now twenty-Three years old and has completed a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Financial planning and Accounting. He is also a motivational speaker and loves to go out and share his story and experience wherever opportunities are available. He has developed talks to relate to and encourage students through topics that challenge today’s teenagers. He’s also a speaker in the corporate sector.

He has a passion for reaching out to youth and motivates them to live their lives in an excellent manner.

He says “ I have many dreams and goals that I have set to achieve in my life. I want to become the best witness I can be of God’s Love and Hope, to become an international inspirational speaker I want to become financially independent by the age of 25, through real estate investments, to modify a car for me to drive and to be interviewed and share my story on the “Oprah Winfrey Show”! 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 him. Once we make ourselves available for god’s Work, guess whose capabilities we rely on? God’s!

Nick Vujivic’s Life is not only a great source of Inspiration for the physically challenged but it is an example even for those who are healthy and yet fail to appreciate their lives, If you feel you are unhappy or unlucky then you need to think twice, look at Nick, who has not only learnt to deal with his challenges but is an living inspiration and be thankful for all that god has given to you and learn to appreciate life.
