Understandably, my parents had strong concern and evident fears of what kind of life I'd be able
to lead. God provided them strength, wisdom and courage through those early years and soon
after that I was old enough to go to school.
The law in Australia didn't allow me to be integrated into a main-stream school because of my
physical disability. God did miracles and gave my Mom the strength to fight for the law to be
changed. I was one of the first disabled students to be integrated into a main-stream school.
I liked going to school, and just try to live life like everyone else, but it was in my early years of
school where I encountered uncomfortable times of feeling rejected, weird and bullied because of
my physical difference. It was very hard for me to get used to, but with the support of my parents,
I started to develop attitudes and values which helped me overcome these challenging times. I
knew that I was different but on the inside I was just like everyone else. There were many times
when I felt so low that I wouldn't go to school just so I didn't have to face all the negative
attention. I was encouraged by my parents to ignore them and to try start making friends by just
talking with some kids. Soon the students realized that I was just like them, and starting there God
kept on blessing me with new friends.
There were times when I felt depressed and angry because I couldn't change the way I was, or
blame anyone for that matter. I went to Sunday School and learnt that God loves us all and that He
cares for you. I understood that love to a point as a child, but I didn't understand that if God loved
me why did He make me like this? Is it because I did something wrong? I thought I must have
because out of all the kids at school, I'm the only weird one. I felt like I was a burden to those
around me and the sooner I go, the better it'd be for everyone. I wanted to end my pain and end
my life at a young age, but I am thankful once again, for my parents and family who were always
there to comfort me and give me strength.
Due to my emotional struggles I had experienced with bullying, self esteem and loneliness, God
has implanted a passion of sharing my story and experiences to help others cope with whatever
challenge they have in their life and let God turn it into a blessing. To encourage and inspire
others to live to their fullest potential and not let anything get in the way of accomplishing their
hopes and dreams.
One of the first lessons that I have learnt was not to take things for granted.

|From life without limbs to life without LIMITS ! 沒有四肢 變成 沒有限制！ received from Pi-Twan Huang 黃碧端
From life without limbs to life without LIMITS !
My name is Nick Vujicic and I give God the Glory for how He has used my testimony to touch
thousands of hearts around the world! I was born without limbs and doctors have no medical
explanation for this birth "defect". As you can imagine, I was faced with many challenges and
"Consider it pure joy, my Brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds."
....To count our hurt, pain and struggle as nothing but pure joy? As my parents were Christians,
and my Dad even a Pastor of our church, they knew that verse very well. However, on the
morning of the 4th of December 1982 in Melbourne ( Australia ), the last two words on the minds
of my parents was "Praise God!". Their firstborn son had been born without limbs! There were no
warnings or time to prepare themselves for it. The doctors we shocked and had no answers at all!
There is still no medical reason why this had happened and Nick now has a Brother and Sister who
were born just like any other baby.
The whole church mourned over my birth and my parents were absolutely devastated. Everyone
asked, "if God is a God of Love, then why would God let something this bad happen to not just
anyone, but dedicated Christians?" My Dad thought I wouldn't survive for very long, but tests
proved that I was a healthy baby boy just with a few limbs missing.
沒有四肢 變成 沒有限制！
"And we know that in all things God works for the best for those who love Him."
That verse spoke to my heart and convicted me to the point where that I know that there is no such
thing as luck, chance or coincidence that these "bad" things happen in our life.
I had complete peace knowing that God won't let anything happen to us in our life unless He has a
good purpose for it all. I completely gave my life to Christ at the age of fifteen after reading John
9. Jesus said that the reason the man was born blind was "so that the works of God may be
revealed through him." I truly believed that God would heal me so I could be a great testimony of
His Awesome Power. Later on I was given the wisdom to understand that if we pray for
something, if it's God's will, it'll happen in His time. If it's not God's will for it to happen, then I
know that He has something better.
I now see that Glory revealed as He is using me just the way I am and in ways others can't be used.
I am now twenty- three years old and have completed a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in
Financial Planning and Accounting. I am also a motivational speaker and love to go out and share
my story and testimony wherever opportunities become available. I have developed talks to relate
to and encourage students through topics that challenge today's teenagers. I am also a speaker in
the corporate sector.
I have a passion for reaching out to youth and keep myself available for whatever God wants me
to do, and wherever He leads, I follow. I have many dreams and goals that I have set to achieve in
my life. I want to become the best witness I can be of God's Love and Hope, to become an
international inspirational speaker and be used as a vessel in both Christian and non-Christian
venues. I want to become financially independent by the age of 25, through real estate
investments, to modify a car for me to drive and to be interviewed and share my story on the
"Oprah Winfrey Show"! Writing several best-selling books has been one of my dreams and I hope
to finish writing my first by the end of the year. It will be called "No Arms, No Legs, No Worries!"
I believe that if you have the desire and passion to do something, and if it's God's will, you will
achieve it in good time. As humans, we continually put limits on ourselves for no reason at all!
What's worse is putting limits on God who can do all things. We put God in a "box". The
awesome thing about the Power of God, is that if we want to do something for God, instead of
focusing on our capability, concentrate on our availability for we know that it is God through us
and we can't do anything without Him. Once we make ourselves available for God's work, guess
whose capabilities we rely on? God's!
