WATCH: This Inspiring Speech on Overcoming Hopelessness From An Unlikely Source?

    In a world that places so much value on perfection, wealth and material possessions, it can be very easy to fall into hopelessness or to feel inadequate. And no one knows what that feels like more than the man in this video.

    For those who are unfamiliar with Nick Vujicic’s story, here’s a little background information. He was born without arms and legs. As one would imagine, he struggled through the earlier part of his life and even considered suicide. However, this isn’t a story about defeat. No. On the contrary, this is a story about a man who, as he puts it, was able to “transform the walls [in his life] into doors” and overcome his hopelessness. Here’s a snippet of some of Nick’s inspiring words:

    “I’m wonderfully and faithfully made. There’s a purpose for my life. I am here for a reason. Sure. I didn’t get a miracle. [But] I believe in a God who can do miracles. If God doesn’t change my circumstance, he’s going to use my life to be a miracle for someone else.”


    Check out the rest of his inspiring speech below and let us know how it made you feel in the comments.
