I've been on and off the computer between times that the boys were working without me. I'm TRYING to catch up on mail and comments.. what I'm about to share is AMAZING! (I got in an email, but I'm not sure who sent it.. if was YOU, THANKS!)

Get ready to be INSPIRED.. and remember, we have SO LITTLE to complain about!

Talk about inspirational!! What a blessing his testimony is to hear! There is no doubt that he will help win many souls for Christ. To think that I complain when I'm having a bad hair day or when when I look in the mirror and see all my imperfections staring back...I should be so ahamed.

Thank you for sharing this powerful video and for helping all of us to keep things in perspective.

By the way, I would like to give you an award today. You won't find your name on the list...I knew I was going to overlook someone! I tried to go back and add your name, but it messes up the spacing and all. Just know that I think you're most deserving of the Marie-Antionette Award. Please accept my apologies for not putting your name on the list...it was a complete oversight!

Tonya - a little over a year ago someone from our church saw him live - came running home to share Nick's testimony with us. I saw that and could barely see my eyes were so swollen and red from crying.

What in the world is wrong with us? Why can't we stop complaining and being so self absorbed and CONSIDER JESUS? Consider what He is asking us to do - gosh is love really too difficult?

This is my walk by faith - to learn to love as Christ did and does. I cry sometimes to Him that I mess up so badly and all I want to do is feel Him, touch Him and allow Him to pour out of every cell of my body. It breaks my heart that we - ok ME can't get this one commandment right to love one another as He loves us. Goodness me He is living inside of me. BELIEVE! RECEIVE! Allow Him to do ALL! BE ALL! Because HE gave ALL that day on Calvary!

Big Big HUGS!
Love,
Jill

I have seen this before and am moved every single time by his testimony! He is a wonderful and precious human being. I feel so selfish when I see this that I get so consumed with such unimportant "stuff"! Thank you so very much for putting this video on your blog as a reminder to all of us! xo Keli

Oh my goodness. I am feeling pretty small & selfish about all of my "problems"!

What a profound witness he is for Christ! In HIM we are whole.

Blessings!

Jessie said...

Thank you for sharing this. I have seen his testimony before and it is so inspiring!

Jennifer said...

Thank you so much for sharing this!! That is truly inspirational and does and should make people realize that they may not have it so bad!! I'm in tears right now for this beautiful testimony of faith!!

Jennifer said...

Oh man....I lost the sound when my computer went down last week and I haven't recovered it yet. I will be back to see this awesome video everyone is talking about! Hope your having a fantastic week and hope that your weekend brings you much fun & rest of course!! Thanks for stopping by and leaving such an uplifting comment....oh how sweet you are!

Pam D said...

Tears, tears, and more tears... mainly of gratitude that God allowed us to create technology that lets this beautiful young warrior share his testimony with millions. I sat my boy in my lap and we watched several of his videos; me crying, my son laughing at the funny stuff, and both of us simply awestruck. Isn't it amazing that someone with no arms or legs can be the hands and feet of Jesus in such a perfect way? I linked my blog to yours for this one...

Serendipity said...

Thanks for sharing that. How inspirational!

Daphine said...

Oh! WOW! These two videos were amazing!!!! Yep, totally inspired, definitely goosebumps and many tears! After seeing these, why would I even think about complaining about anything!?!?!? Thanks girl for sharing these!

A Stone Gatherer said...

We have a DVD of him at church. He is truly an amazing gift!

Beth E. said...

Well, I've been sitting here, tears streaming down my face, with such admiration for Nick! I have seen the second video before, but not the first one.

Thanks for the blessing!

Glad you are back! I love reading your blog. Water heaters and computer problems are usually my mode of operation. Hope things are better now. Have a great weekend.

Greg P. said...

Who am I to complain about my minor inconveniences!

Not only has he overcome his disabilities, but, he praises God for them!

Thanks Tonya.

Wow, Tonya! Okay, here is why I have goosebumps in addition to how much he has overcome. The Bible verse he references in the second video from Jeremiah...well, I have wrestled with that verse DAILY since last spring. In fact, I found myself thinking about that verse just two hours ago and the plans He does have for me that I swear I am not ready to commit to. One comment can't tell you how much that verse has come to me over the last few months, but this was powerful!
I am also going to share this with my grandfather. He lost both of his legs in 2007 during two separate operations and has struggled with feelings of uselessness. If I could, I would get this man to come spend time with my precious grandfather so that he could see how God could use him, too.

Sorry for the long comment, but I was totally moved by your post! Thanks for sharing!

Hi Tonya,

My Husband and I just got back from seeing Fireproof. It was wonderful! I didnt tell him what it was about for fear he wouldnt go with me, but he said he enjoyed it too. I am trying to share my newfound faith with him but I just dont think he is ready yet. I feel like if I dont try though that I am leaving him behind while I make a very important journey without him and that just doesnt feel right. I know he sees changes in me but we havent really talked about them and why, he just knows I listen to alot of Christian music now, LOL. I am just afraid that if I tell him how excited I am about Christ he will back away.

Tiffany Stuart said...

I bawled when I first saw this guy about 6 months ago. HE is an inspiration. Thankful for his testimony, his faith, and his heart for the youth.

Michelle said...

WOW!! What an amazing testimony. And to think that he reached over a million people before he was placed on YouTube. I pray that he reaches millions and millions more! Thank you for sharing!
