Have you ever heard of Nick Vujicic? You know the question, "If you could invite five people to dinner who would it be"? Well, Nick would be one of my picks. This is a young man we can all learn a great deal from. He can totally teach us how to live! I loved this devotional! It was so refreshing to read his story. He is an inspiration and a great encouragement to all. Nick was born without legs and arms. Can you imagine? I cannot even grasp this, but Nick not only was born this way, he grasped a hold of the Lord and is living his life for Jesus! Amen! That is something to shout about.
Nick could live an angry and bitter life, but he chooses to live in the moment. Once you read his story you understand that he isn't disabled at all. In fact, he is probably more able than most. He has shared his story in, "Life Without Limits", and Unstoppable". It was a blessing to be privileged to review his third book, "Limitless", which is a devotional. This small treasure contains fifty devotional type stories. They are short but powerful. Nick shares a scripture verse, a devotion that is brought out by his life lived limitless. Each devotion closes with, "Limitless Life", just a short quote of encouragement to live by.
A few of the devotions are titled, "Hope for the Impossible", "Triumph Over Tragedy", "Never Be Without Hope", "Full Surrender", "Don't Go It Alone", "A Passionate Pursuit", and many more.
Here are just a few of Nick's Limitless Life quotes:
"Even if you haven't always appreciated the ways you are different, thank God for His divine creation of you. Ask Him to show you how your uniqueness can be used to help others or to glorify Him."
"Your comeback, like mine, may come in small steps, day by day, over a period of weeks or months. I hope yours comes quickly, but there are benefits to a gradual revival. As the fog of despair lifts, be grateful for every ray of light that comes through."
"The next time something unforeseen happens to your plans, try not to view it as a disruption. Instead, look for the hidden gift-the opportunity that blesses you or someone around you. Be available to be used by God when He needs you."
This book is perfectly placed together with scripture, devotion and inspirational quotes by Nick. It is clear to see that Nick is being used of God for great missions. Nick is an example of a humble man, living out life with purpose and passion, giving glory to the God who created him just as he is. Beautiful beyond description.
This is one of those books that will bring life into perspective. We forget what is truly important and focus on things that really don't matter at all. Nick truly shows us how to live the limitless life that God created for us!
This book was a gift from WaterBrook Press for my review.
