I was hoping the book Unstoppable would focus a little more on Nick Vujicic himself, but I imagine that's what his previous book, Life Without Limbs, is about and I haven't had a chance to read it yet! Unstoppable is a good read with some great points, filled with stories about Nick Vujicic and different experiences he has gone through. He is humorous and inspirational and has reached many people around the world. He has such a great heart and lives for God, believing that everyone was created for a unique purpose and we can all be a gift to others, no matter the hardships we face.
At times, people question why we face hard times and why can't God just make it easier on us, I love how Vujicic put it... "Because throughout difficult times, you will learn more, grow more in faith, love God more, and love your neighbor more. It is the journey of faith that begins in love and ends in love." I realize not everybody will react to negative circumstances the same way, but could you imagine how much better this world would be, if we could all grow in faith and love??
Another great point I came across in this book was something one of Vujicic's friends had written him. "...when danger turns your way it's because God is about to do something great that Satan wants to stop" This is a great thought! So many times bad things get in the way of something good we got going on and honestly, a lot of times, the bad seems to overcome the good. If we can remember to push through the bad to keep with the good, we will surely see the great thing God is about to do...and Satan can shove it and be intimidated to see we're not scared of him.
There's some encouraging bits in the book Unstoppable, a book I know several people were just waiting to read! I'm glad I was given the chance to read Unstoppable, given to me from Waterbrook Multnomah.
