Last night, I went to a charity dinner. They had a lady from mainland China doing a sharing , who lost her arms and hands at 5 years old. Now she is in her late 20s, currently doing an occupational therapist program at a world known university in California.
No hands and doing an Occupational therapist program !
How can we complain again!!!!?????
We cannot complain at all.
That is all God’s work and grace ! She was so loved by the Lord!
I was at her table and had a chance to to talk with her. She was so cheerful and I asked her how she took care of herself. She was using her legs to hold chopsticks, played the cell phone, from time to time she would use her foot to move her long hair ! And she said she even used her foot to hold the keys to open the door and she cooks for herself. She was ‘right-footed’ ! She said she would stand on one leg and used her right foot to do chores if needed……… she is a devoted ‘believer’ she always bringing her problems to Christ in her prayers! Perhaps we should live our lives closer to Christ and learn from the Bible!
We should be more thankful for we already have and not continuously asking for things that we may not or do not need……..

Philippians 4:6-7 (NKJV)
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
