We’ve all heard the scripture and advice that God will never give you more than you can bear (1 Cor 10:13). Imagine however giving birth to a child that has no arms and only one really thin useless looking leg. Imagine looking in the mirror at yourself and seeing having no arms and only 1 leg. Would you have a positive attitude? Would you be able to smile, laugh or even get in front of a crowd and talk to people about how great God is?
This Nick’s story - except his parents never saw him as anything other than a wonderful baby bow. Nick never thought of himself as anything other than normal.
I’m not sure I like how this book is written. He goes forward and backward in his life story too quickly. One moment he’s two, then he’s a teen and then he’s 10. It’s too much bouncing around. Then he’ll write something like this
“Don’t put your life on hold so that you can dwell on unfairness or past hurts.
Look instead of ways to move forward.”and it makes me like what I’m reading and I keep reading. Another great quote
“Even if at times you feel alone, you should know that you are
loved too and recognize that God created you out of love.”
it’s a definite feel-good book with some good advice on how to keep going each day when you feel like your life sucks.
Nick's life never had any limits to it. Does yours? You should read this book if it does and work on removing those limits from your life so that you can live a Ridiculously Good Life.
