Nick Vujicic – Contentment without Limbs



my dad was saying that he was you know his head was next to my mom's head as I was I was being born and he saw my shoulder and he just went pale he was hoping my mum didn't see me because he saw that I had no right arm and my dad had to leave the room and he couldn't believe what he saw and the doctor came in and my dad said my son he has no right arm and he says no your son has no arms or legs and he said he nearly fell on the floor I couldn't believe it and the whole church was mourning you know like why would God let the pastor son be born that way and my mom at first she didn't want to hold me she didn't want to you know breastfeed me and all that she just felt very uncomfortable for the first four months and it took them quite a while before they could trust in God that he didn't make a mistake that he didn't forget them or me Nick's parents gave their fear and even disappointment in their son's disability over to the Lord they chose to trust God and his promise that he had a plan and purpose a hope and a future for their son but as the years passed Nick on the other hand had many challenges trusting in a God but he felt gave him less I challenged God I said God I know that I'm a sinner I know then I won't probably have peace until you're in my heart but I will not lay in my heart until you answer me why why did you take my arms and legs why didn't you give me what everybody else has and I said God until you answer me that question I will not serve you so I wanted to end it if God wasn't gonna end my pain I was gonna end in myself so at age and I tried to drown myself in a bathtub or four inches of water I told my mom and dad I'm just gonna relax in the bathtub can you put me in the bathtub and yeah I turned over a couple times to see if I could do what I couldn't do it they thought that stopped me from going through with it was the love for my parents that would be the last time Nick would attempt suicide but it wouldn't be the last time he would come face to face with those deep issues that made him want to end the pain then one day next mother had him read an article about a severely disabled man and that man's story made a huge impact on Nick I have a choice not to be angry at God for what I don't have we'll be thankful for what I do have and my mom she said Nick God's gonna use you I don't know how I don't know when but God's gonna use you and those seeds started penetrating in my heart and that's when I started seeing that there is no point in being complete on the outside when you're broken on the inside and I found out that God can heal you without changing a circumstance I gave my life to Jesus Christ when I read John 9 at age 15 where a man was coming through a village and a man this blind man from birth Jesus saw him people said why was this man born that way jesus said it was done so that the works of God may be revealed through him and in second Timothy 3 verse 16 it says all Scripture is god-breathed and I believe God breathed in me life and faith this faith came over me this peace came over me and it was in Jesus Christ where Nick found the strength to do what many thought would be the impossible once we realize that when we read the Word of God and you know the truth of who you are I'm not a man without arms and legs okay I am a child of God I am forgiven of my sins I'm an ambassador of the king of kings and Lord of lords I'm nothing but a servant of the Most High God this is not about Nick it's not about Nick's capacity and capability to become this Conqueror I am nothing I'm nothing God lives in me and I now live in his strength and whatever Jesus conquered I conquer I believe if God doesn't give you a miracle you are a miracle of God for somebody else's salvation and I thank God that he didn't answer my prayer when I was begging him found some legs at age eight because guess what because I have no arms no legs he's using me all around the world and we've seen so far approximately this is a conservative two hundred thousand souls come to Jesus Christ for the very first time in the last six seven years and what would you rather would you rather have arms and legs Nick here on earth and no arms no whatever his will is because I'd rather have no arms and no legs temporarily here on earth to be able to reach someone else for Jesus Christ and then spend eternity with them there in the last decade Nick has shared his story in 24 countries to over three million people and whether he's talking to a stadium packed with people or one single person his heart behind the message is the same God loves you that he hasn't forgotten your pain he hasn't forgotten your family and maybe while you're watching this interview you've compared your suffering to my suffering and that's not where hope is to know that someone else in your opinion is suffering more than you that's not where hope is but hope is in the name of God the name of the Lord Jesus Christ hope is when you compare your suffering to the infinite immeasurable love and grace of God Isaiah 40 verse 31 says those who wait upon the Lord will renew their strength they shall mount up on wings as Eagles I didn't need my circumstance to change I don't need arms and legs I need the wings of the Holy Spirit and I'm flying because I know Jesus is holding me up don't give up on God because God will not give up on you
