Nick + Joy

Today at church we continued to go through the “One Month to Live” series.  Our BFG lesson shared a video clip of Nick Vujicic.  Nick is an Australianwith a crazy sense of humor -who also happened to be born without any arms or legs.  He shared how he is using his personal story to reach people for Christ.  To quote Nick, “God, who is bigger than my circumstances, is letting this happen for a reason.”  Nick is an amazing example of how God works through those who others might consider “imperfect”.  One thing that Nick said that really stood out is that his “pain is real and God’s victory is real”.  While people can argue that God doesn’t exist, they can’t argue with his smile.  His joy gives him a way to reach out to others and get them to listen to what he has to say.  Summed up, “Joy is about perspective”  and how we choose to deal with the circumstances in our lives allows us to impact those around us… sometimes the world is watching like in Nick’s case, or sometimes we just have family and friends wondering why we are always smiling away.
