Nick Vujicic

Wow. Today I, my family, and probably half or more of Kuching went to hear a man by the name of Nicholas James Vujicic speak of his testimony and experiences in life. But what's so special about him? Besides the odd last name and handsome face, why the throng of crowds pushing their way into the ACS building??

I tell you what, he has no arms and no legs. He has only a toe or two (or so he called, his "chicken drumstick") that seems to have developed exceptional speed and agility. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!

But wait, he's not just some freak show that people came to see just for curiosity. He's also a super amazing motivational speaker who travels accross the world to speak not just in Christian evangelical meetings like today's but also in the business and corporate world.

Even after years of hearing the amazing message of God's love, plan and salvation I still am mesmerized by Nick Vujicic and what he declared. He was also really, really funny. He made jokes and seemed to be poking fun about his own disability, and told stories of how he pulled pranks on people. But it really was all about how amazing God is in each and every life. Nick found his miracle not in healing of his body but his heart - and he became a miracle to people around him and beyond. Are we any different? We're all imperfect, sinners so unworthy, yet God decided to love us, save us, bring us into His amazing family. I can't imagine a life without it.

Nick was also encouraging young people not to give up, because God really has a plan for your life. He was on the verge of committing suicide at some point of his teenage life, but he found hope! Life without hope is not worth living. He realized that there was a purpose to his circumstance - cos there is one thing greater than going to heaven, and that's bringing someone with you!!

God bless!
