Shoes in the Closet

This is going to be a quick post tonight, because after a busy day, I just sat down at the computer.  Today I am combining my January Quests because I was so inspired by the video I watched while walking.
 
Exercise & Write Something
This morning, after lifting my hand weights, I walked two miles on the treadmill and watched a couple great videos online. 

Have you ever heard of an amazing guy named Nick Vujicic?  He was born without arms or legs.  Despite this hardship, he has lived an incredible life and leads a wonderful ministry for Christ.  I watched a fantastic interview with him on "Life Today", and I just had to share it with you. 
 
Enjoy this video:  Nick Vujicic - Unstoppable
 
I have to admit, I was tired this morning and by the time I started watching this interview, I was about a mile into my walk and I wanted to stop.  Needless to say, a few minutes into watching this man, I certainly couldn't quit walking just because I was tired. 

I mean...my goodness...I have two perfectly good legs and I was too tired to walk a little further?  This is a man who has no legs and part of one foot, and yet keeps a pair of shoes in his closet just in case God decides to perform a miracle.  Those pair of shoes are proof that he believes God can do it.  Isn't that amazing faith?  And yet, he has also found happiness and contentment with his life as he is now.

Nick Vujicic is such an inspiration in so many ways.  Even though he is different from almost everyone in the world, I don't think there is a person alive that couldn't relate to him and be encouraged by him. 

This video stuck with me throughout the day and I just kept thinking about those shoes in his closet... 

Oh how I want to live my life with that kind of faith and contentment!
