A younger sister of mine is a nurse and some months ago she had taken care of a woman who has been born with a defect. What I mean with that is that she has no feet and she only have one finger. But she can walk alright with her half legs and do a lot with her half arms and one finger.
What is so remarkable with this woman is that she managed to come on top despite being a handicap. She now works as a social worker, driving her own car, managing her own business and already published a book, which she has written.
Actually, she was placed by her parents in an orphanage. But she was adopted and taken cared of her adopted parents. Her faith in God had helped her in her struggles. She was also reunited with her parents and having now a good relationship with them.
Most of us would consider living with such physical problems to be among life greatest struggles. But not this woman. She is admirable and an inspiration to many.
Although we are blessed with a healthy body, a sound mind and stable emotion, still we sometimes complain that we cannot do this and do that because of our imperfectness. We used our lack of something as a reason not to do what God intended us to do. But don’t forget that we have a perfect God and we can always turn to Him for help. As his creation, he has blessed us with something that we can use and develop to do remarkable things. Like the handicap woman who actually have all the reason not to do anything, but used what God has given her to achieve her goals. And with God’s help, she survived against all odds. An inspiration for many not to give up when the going gets tough.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Someone said: “ Only those who admit their weakness can be strong in the Lord.”
Jesus said: "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33
So friends, with faith in God, we can do the impossible!
