Three broken but powerful, living tools of God

Bethany Hamilton, Nick Vujicic, and Joni Eareckson Tada:

-All three have extreme physical handicaps.

Bethany Hamilton lost an arm due to a shark attack while surfing as a teenager.

Nick Vujicic was born without limbs.

Joni Eareckson Tada was paralyzed from the neck down during a diving accident as a teenager.

-All three have ministries where they have inspired, helped and motivated millions world-wide.

-All three have strong faith in Christ Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

-And none of them would have the powerful, moving, inspiring, motivating testimonies, ministries to others, and global impact that they have, if not for their extreme disabilities.

‎"Having one arm is the way He uses me." (Bethany Hamilton)

"The challenges in our lives are there to STRENGTHEN our CONVICTIONS. They are NOT there to run us over." (Nick Vujicic)

"Most of the verses written about praise in God's Word were voiced by people faced with crushing heartaches, injustice, treachery, slander, and scores of other difficult situations." (Joni Eareckson Tada)

Thank you, Dr. Murray. For now, it's an experiment. As to whether or not it may become too distracting is yet to be seen. There is an option to turn it off, but I would prefer one that does not start until you turn it on manually, if I can find one like that.

I also just added "Jeff's bookshelf," to show a few of the books I've read. That, too, is an experiment, but it probably will not cause much distraction.
