“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13)
COMMENT: Every year there are many graduates from medical schools across the country, however last May Kellie Lim’s graduation made big news. You see this young woman in Los Angeles had lost both legs and an arm as a child; she became a triple amputee at age 8 because of bacterial meningitis. “The Michigan native, 26, does not use a prosthetic arm and manages to perform most medical procedures–including giving injections and taking blood–with one arm. She walks on a pair of prosthetic legs.” (The Washington Times. Monday, May 28, 2007)
Some time ago, Armstrong Sperry wrote a book titled “Call it Courage”. If he wanted to write a sequel, I nominate Kellie Lim as the subject. At a very early age she could had wallowed in self-pity and just wasted her life. Some of us are paying too much attention to a failed past instead of believing the wonderful promises of God. Paul wrote our Lead Scripture, but it is a promise for every single Christian.
I don’t know what encouraged Kellie to overcome her handicap and to move onto great heights; what I do know is that we saints have a Father who can work miracles in our lives. . . .all we have to do is provide the faith.
