I had all kinds of things that I wanted to post about today, however I keep going back to something that I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. I keep thinking about all the great things that I’m going to do in the future. I keep thinking about the plans that God has for my life and that they are so much bigger than I could ever comprehend. I know that in my last post I was talking about having faith, however when you trust in that faith then God starts to really work in your life and slowly starts to reveal things to you. So in this post I wanted to continue from where I left off in the last post.

I know that He is starting to reveal parts of my future and what I am doing is staying encouraged in what those plans are and not letting the physical and mental challenges take control of my life. Like I mentioned in my last post if someone like Nick Vujicic can swim and do all the things that he does then why shouldn’t I. Does it mean that I don’t face REAL pain? No! Does it mean that I don’t wake up some mornings and say that it’s going to be a hard day? No! I don’t want to make it sound like everything is perfect. What you don’t know is that as I write this I’ve been having a really hard time over the last five days. My pain has been intense, and trying to stay positive has been really hard. There isn’t a day that I don’t ask God for help to reduce the pain or help with my attitude. As I ask for God’s help in these areas I’m finding that he’s strengthening me and giving me that positive attitude I need.

Rather than bore you with a long winded post that doesn’t make any sense I am attaching another video of Nick’s that I really hope that it speaks to you. I know it does to me! I’d love to hear your thoughts on what you think about this message. Please feel free to reach out to me through email at ross@painfullyoptomistic.com. I’ve had to change the video because the original one that was posted was taken down by the publisher.

Any of Nick Vujicic’s messages are powerful and you can certainly tell that the power of God flows through this man. I’m excited by how some of these things he speaks towards are starting to happen in my life. Shaping and changing my life and I owe those changes to God. My future is going to be great.
