Trading your dream in for God's cause....

Sometimes it's not by choice...sometimes that dream is stolen form you.  Thinking about Gabby Giffords today.  She was shot in the head...learning to walk and talk again, and just had to resign from Congress to heal...but vows she will return.

Reading a book about htis by Matthew Barnett called "The Cause Within You"....He said, "Getting back up again is not only good for you but for a world that desperately needs the comeback story within you."

You do not have to be famous to make a difference.

Saw this story about a young man who was a high school baseball star....he joined the Marines out of school....was sent to Afghanistan....where a roadside bomb took his legs.

He didn't know if he would even survive let alone walk, run or play ball again.

But, on a recent Saturday afternoon...he played ball.  Along with a bunch of other amputees in the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Teams.  They travel the country and raise money for charities...

All of the infielders are missing at least one of thier legs...one outfielder is missing a hand and the rightfielder plays without his entire left arm and shoulder.  At the end of the game he challenges his two armed opponents to a push up contest...He always wins!

You think your too messed up for God to use you...NO way!  It's the messed up people that make the most difference.

Went to the web site using the link. What an inspiring story! My prayer is 24 hour news channels will fill their time with inspiring stories such as these during prime time spots on a more regular basis. Can you imagine watching these stories right before dinner and discussing them during our meals?!?! I am currently listening to a study based on Romans 12, the first half of verse 15 fits this story so well. Thanks for sharing
