Testimony of Nick, born without limbs
“Why God, was I born this way?” That’s the question Nick Vujicic wondered for many years, being born without arms and legs. A lot of us have problems of our own and we often grumble at the slightest discomfort and complain at common day-to-day difficulties that beset us all. Imagine getting through your busy day without hands or legs like Nick?
Imagine getting through your busy day without hands or legs.
Experiencing joy and happiness did not come easy with Nick, each day was difficult and seem hopeless. Thoughts of rejection and suicide filled his mind. He questioned God for seven years. It took lots of thinking and emotions for Nick to which he had no answer and understanding until he read God’s words in the Bible.
Life Without Limbs
Nicholas Vujicic (pronounced VOO-yee-cheech) was born in 1982 in Melbourne, Australia, without arms and legs and doctors had no explanation to why or how this happened. Three sonograms failed to reveal complications. And yet, the Vujicic family was destined to cope with both the challenge and blessing of raising a son who refused to allow his physical condition to limit his lifestyle.
The early days were difficult. Throughout his childhood, Nick not only dealt with the typical challenges of school and adolescence, but he also struggled with depression and loneliness. Nick constantly wondered why he was different than all the other kids. He questioned the purpose of life, or if he even had a purpose.
Nick’s daily victory is fuelled by his faith in God. His family, friends and the many people he has encountered along the journey have inspired him to carry on, as well. Today, he is an author, musician, actor, with hobbies like fishing, painting, and swimming.
Nick says, “If God can use a man without arms and legs to be His hands and feet, then He will certainly use any willing heart!” Nick’s latest foray into radio will expand his platform for inviting men and women all around the world to embrace the liberating hope and message of Jesus Christ.
Life without Limbs is a ministry where Nick belongs to. It is all about sharing the hope and genuine love that Nick himself have experienced from God as well as people from around the world. His testimony has inspired many to realize that ‘although it appears that bad things happen to good people,’ God is there committed to love and support anyone facing trials on this earth.
