Nick Vujicic and wife are expecting their second child
Limbless Christian evangelist Nick Vujicic and his wife Kanae are expecting their second child!
Vujicic made the announcement on his Facebook account with two photos of him, his wife and son Kiyoshi enjoying some quality time together. Kiyoshi had on a “MOST AWESOME BIG BROTHER” long-sleeved shirt and the whole family had huge smiles plastered on their faces.
Now, aside from happily expecting another child, his short film The Butterfly Circus (2009) will be turned into a full movie version, Variety reported.
The film is about a circus troupe travelling across the American landscape during the Great Depression. When they chance upon a man without limbs who is being exploited, they convince him to join their troupe. The short film has been streamed over 40 million times and continues to grow by one million views monthly since it was first released.
The Lord is God of the physically healthy and the mentally strong, but He is also the God of the physically disabled and the mentally handicapped. He is sovereign over the fragile and feeble as well as over the adroit and mighty. The Bible teaches that every person conceived in this world is a unique creation of God, and that includes the disabled and the handicapped.
Nick had a troubled childhood. When he was only eight, he reportedly contemplated suicide because of his physical limitations until he found God’s grace and turned his life around. Someone with a critical spirit is prone to complaining, seeing the glass as half-empty, ruing unmet expectations, sensing failure (in others more than in oneself), and being judgmental. Critical spirits are no fun to be around; neither are they fun to possess.
Nick didn’t let his disability stand in the way of him doing things he loved the most and finding the perfect partner to spend the rest of his life with.
A critical spirit tears down those around us and robs us of our own ability to enjoy life. When we become overly critical, we miss out on the beauty that God has placed in this world. Small blessings go unnoticed, and we stop being thankful.
Overcoming a critical spirit requires gratefulness, a willingness to forgive, an accurate understanding of God’s grace (it’s free!), an intentional refocusing of our thoughts, and a commitment to share the truth in love.
Do you see yourself as someone who will never be able to achieve anything? Maybe you have a disability or you think you’re not smart enough because people have told you that will never be anything in life? Or perhaps, you don’t believe in yourself at all?
