Testimony of Nick
A TRULY AWESOME STORY !
My name is Nick Vujicic and I give God the Glory for
how He has used my testimony to touch thousands of
hearts around the world! I was born without limbs and
doctors have no medical explanation for this birth
'defect'. As you can imagine, I was faced with many
challenges and obstacles.
'Consider it pure joy, my
Brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds.'
.... To count our hurt, pain and struggle as nothing
but pure joy? As my parents were Christians, and my
Dad even a Pastor of our church, they knew that verse
very well. However, on the morning of the 4th of
December 1982 in Melbourne (Australia ), the last two
words on the minds of my parents was 'Praise God!'.
Their firstborn son had been born without limbs! There
were no warnings or time to prepare themselves for it.
The doctors we shocked and had no answers at all!
There is still no medical reason why this had happened
and Nick now has a Brother and Sister who were born
just like any other baby.
The whole church mourned over my birth and my parents
were absolutely devastated. Everyone asked, 'if God is
a God of Love, then why would God let
something this bad happen to not just anyone, but
dedicated Christians?' My Dad thought I wouldn't
survive for very long, but tests proved that I was a
healthy baby boy just with a few limbs missing.
'And we know that in all things God works for the best
for those who love Him.? That verse spoke to my heart
and convicted me to the point where
that I know that there is no such thing as luck,
chance or coincidence that these 'bad' things happen
in our life.
I had complete peace knowing that God won't let
anything happen to us in our life unless He has a good
purpose for it all. I completely gave my life to
Christ at the age of fifteen after reading John 9.
Jesus said that the reason the man was born blind was
'so that the works of God may be revealed through
Him.' I truly believed that God would heal me so I
could be a great testimony of His Awesome Power. Later
on I was given the wisdom to understand that if we
pray for something, if it's God's will, it'll happen
in His time. If it's not God's will for it to happen,
then I know that He has something better.
I now see that Glory revealed as He is using me just
the way I am and in ways others can't be used. I am
now twenty-three years old and have completed a bachelor
of Commerce majoring in Financial Planning and
Accounting. I am also a motivational speaker and love
to go out and share my story and testimony wherever
opportunities become available. I have developed talks
to relate to and encourage students through topics
that challenge today's teenagers. I am also a speaker
in the corporate sector.
I have a passion for reaching out to youth and keep
myself available for whatever God wants me to do, and
wherever He leads, I follow.
I have many dreams and goals that I have set to
achieve in my life. I want to become the best witness
I can be of God's Love and Hope , to become an
international inspirational speaker and be used as a
vessel in both Christian and non-Christian venues. I
want to become financially independent by the age of
25, through real estate investments, to modify a car
for me to drive and to be interviewed and share my
story on the ' Oprah Winfrey Show '! Writing several
best-selling books has been one of my dreams and I
hope to finish writing my first by the end of the
year. It will be called 'No Arms, No Legs, No
I believe that if you have the desire and passion to
do something, and if it's God's will, you will achieve
it in good time. As humans, we continually put limits
on ourselves for no reason at all! What's worse is
putting limits on God who can do all things. We put
God in a 'box'. The awesome thing about the Power of
God, is that if we want to do something for God,
instead of focusing on our capability, concentrate on
our availability for we know that it is God through us
and we can't do anything without Him. Once we make
ourselves available for God's work, guess whose
capabilities we rely on? God's!
May the Lord Bless you
