Unstoppable, updated review

This book, UNSTOPPABLE by Nick Vujicic, is an encouraging read.  Not only does Nick share the wisdom he has gleaned from his own struggles and victories, but he also share numerous stories of the struggles and victories of other people.  With each victory experienced after heartache and struggles, Nick is an example of one who believes every life is a gift from God, and a gift to be lived to the fullest.

He says, "God finds ways for us to use bad things for a good purpose."  This sentence hit home for me.  There have been some bad things in my life, and it's been difficult to believe that God will make something good out of them.  But, allowing God to show me how to use the bad things for a good purpose.  That makes more sense.

If you are looking for an inspiration read, this book is a bit long, but definitely inspiring.  Here is a link to the first chapter of the book if you would like a little sample.

How Nick met his wife is found in Chapter 3 (you can read that here) and I love how he uses his experience to encourage those who feel unlovely, unwanted.  Probably most of us have experienced those feelings, but for some people, life has dealt hard blows and feeling unlovely, unwanted are not just a passing emotion.  Nick is a wonderful gift from and for God's glory, using his life to encourage others.
