10 Days ago i wrote about Nick Vujicic coming to my church.
I’ve taken several days to write this follow-up post because that’s how deep the impact was. I played keys that night and here is a glimpse of the room with Nick sitting in the front row:
After sharing some funny experiences with us, Nick got down to the heart of things. Here are some notes that I took:
- In reference to fear, Nick asks, “What’s the point of having arms and legs if you are paralyzed on the inside?” He explained how fear can paralyze us from the inside-out and cause us to not go and do what God is requiring of us.
- “When you pray, don’t use God as an accessory” (God, give me this, and that, and bless me, etc…). “Instead, praise Him for who He is!”
- After praying for arms and legs Nick heard God say to him, “You wanted arms and legs more than you wanted Me!”
- “If God can use me, with no arms and legs, to be His hands and feet, God can use you!”
After hearing Nick share all these points, I was left with a big lump in my throat. He is just a year younger than me yet, I was left asking myself, “What have I done with my life so far?” Is it possible that I needed this young man to come and challenge the very core of who I am? Yes! I needed to be reminded that God needs men and women who will not be concerned with what the world thinks/says, but who will be His hands and feet to the corners of the earth!
God’s got a plan for your life! Jeremiah 29:11-13
