That's a real warm and fuzzy story. This "man" (whom you can't remember the name) is happy god discrimates against his prayers just because he's an amputee. Sounds like this "man" needs to realize he's wasting his life fearing a god that can't heal him. Hmmmmph.<quoted text>
there is a man (can't remember his name) he is well known, a young man, born without ANY arms or legs... from austrailla i think
he travels the world and gives talks.
you don't think he spent many a night saying'WHY GOD?'
then He decided to 'seek God' and trust God.
and God revealed to this man with no arms or legs, that his life was more valuable and useful without limbs than with limbs.
how so you ask?
God is using this man to show the world that the same God on the mountain is the same God in the valley.
God is using this man to show the world what real faith is.
faith is the SUBSTANCE of things hoped for and the evidence of things not 'YET' seen.
God is using this man to do a MIGHTY work to further the kingdom of God.
do you know how many people (like yourself) whine and bellyache and complain all the time when they DO HAVE their limbs and abilities....they do NOTHING with there life but complain and wallow in self pity .... and here you have a man who has learned what it means to HUMBLY live with limitations and cope, get by, survive and do as much for himself as someone with limbs.
he can feed and dress himself with his 'stubs'....
and he has overcome obstacles you and i would faulter under.
and he puts people like yourself TO SHAME.
God has saved that mans soul and promised him an eternal life and blessings you can't comprehend.
he has a smile on his face and is happy in the Lord in spite of his inflictions.
THATS the real testimony of God's power thru a sustaining faith.
You and your god got NOTHING--NOTHING.
