"But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world
to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak
things of the world to confound the things which are
mighty . . . That no flesh should glory in his presence."
(1 Corinthians 1:27, 29)
Have you ever heard of Nic Vujicic? I had never heard of him before seeing this amazing video on Marie's blog. It so reminds me of one of my most favorite Scripture verses (see quote above), and it also puts me to shame when I think of all the insignificant things (by comparison) that I have, in my past, found to complain about.
Here is a young man whose life, by the world's standards, does not seem to be worth much, and who would have every legitimate reason to complain and feel bitter, and yet he is filled with an undescribable joy, and a passion to lead others to Jesus. The Lord has enabled him to surmount seemingly impossible odds, and has opened the door to a worldwide ministry.
Nic travels the globe, carrying the message of God's love to hurting people through the sharing of his testimony and assurance of God's love for them and special purpose for their lives.
Look who is being used to encourage who. Is that awesome or what!
