Recently, our pastor stated "Do not give up; do not accept the limitations that you have!"
I have been pondering that statement as I am nearing the completion of my book, "TWICE Lessons, Insights & Healing from Cancer". I could feel limited by the fact that I don't know anything about editing or publishing a book. Actually, I don't even know any people in the field. I don't have the funds to really publish it myself. But like the following people, I will not be bound by these limitations, however big or small. I know my God is big enough to handle any limitation that I might encounter.
I am encouraged by people, like the ones below who have accomplished much in their lives, despite the limitations that they have. They have learned to overcome.
Kevin Connolly is a young man, who was born without any legs. He is currently a professional skier, photographer and skateboarder.
Joni Eareckson Tada became a quadraplegic as a teenager through a tragic diving accident. She has become a great speaker, author, artist and evangelist.
Liu Weil lost both his arms in an accident at the age of 10. He learned to play the piano with his feet and won China's Got Talent Show in 2010. His motto is very inspirational ""I can die as fast as possible, or I can live a brilliant life. And I chose the latter." Wow!
No matter what our limitations are, we must not let them stop us from doing what we want to do, or even yet, what we were meant to do. The challenges they bring can serve to teach us and make us stronger if we will not give up. There is really nothing that can hold us back except ourselves. God, in us, will enable us to do the impossible.
In Deuteronomy 13:19, God spoke to his people and said, " This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live."
Let's live life to the fullest and experience God's blessings.
