Life Without Limits
Every once in a while I read a book and I get the sense that I know what it’s all about before I’m through the first few pages. That’s exactly how I felt with “Life Without Limits” by Nick Vujicic (pronounced Voy-a-chich) <yeah I always wondered too>. But something drew me in and compelled me to keep reading. Nick’s outlook on life and the stories he tells in this book are amazing testimonies to God and His ability to use us for His glory.
Nick Vujicic was born with no arms and no legs. He does have a left foot of sorts that he quite capable with. I expected more of an inside peek into Nick’s life and how he grew up but what this book offers is a look into his and others souls. The amazing things that God has been able to accomplish through this young man are an inspiration. He also introduces us to some other inspiring individuals that he has been blessed to meet and know through his travels and shows us how God is using them too.
I love to see examples of God at work around us in everyday life and that work is apparent in Nick and those he has been blessed to reach. I saw him speak once on TV and was quite impressed by his mobility but more so by his attitude which he spreads around the world through his speaking tours as well as from the pages of this book. Some may feel sorry for him but I have to say I’m a bit jealous and embarrassed. I’m 40 years old and have all of my limbs and I haven’t done a fraction of the things he’s done. Not just the exciting, dare-devil things like surfing and scuba diving but more importantly, the God-driven outreach and mission work that Nick has done.
Nick shows us what it is to really be the hands and feet of Jesus and he doesn’t have any of his own.
