Got problems? Yeah, we all do. Sometimes life really stinks and there seems to be no end in sight. Sometimes, though, a little perspective makes a big difference. Please take a few minutes to watch this video.
My point in sharing Nick’s story is not to say, “You think you have it rough? Well, look at Nick!” No. In fact, in Nick’s presentations to schools, churches, and community groups he is the first to tell you not to compare your suffering to his to feel better. Each person has their own circumstances and the real issue is first to remember that God loves you no matter what your situation is. Second, consider how God can use your circumstances to achieve great things. History is full of both small and big stories of people overcoming adversity as well as God using the horrible for good.
The truth is, you are blessedno matter your circumstances. The challenge is for you to see those blessings, enjoy them, and embrace the challenges that come your way to see how they can result in good.
I also encourage you to watch another video that explains the background on Nick’s story.
