Soyez les mains et les pieds

Be the Hands And Feet

Jour 1 sur 5

Yours Are the Feet, Yours Are the Hands

You might be wondering, How can a person born without any limbs consider himself to be the hands and feet of Jesus on earth? 

I agree, hands down, that this is a very good question. I asked myself the same thing many times as I was growing up. What purpose could God have for a man with no limbs? 

These words from Saint Teresa of Avila have had a huge impact on me over the years:

Christ has no body but yours,

No hands, no feet on earth but yours,

Yours are the eyes with which he looks Compassion on this world.

Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good, Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world. 

This quotation provided one of the many steps I took to finding my purpose as an inspirational speaker and Christian role model who shares his faith with others. I can’t do everything, but I do whatever I can to compel people to fill God’s house. This is what we are meant to do as Christians.

The truth of who we are is how we live day to day. If you want to influence others, the most important thing you can do is be a living example of the principles, ideals, and faith that you advocate. The best way to share your beliefs with others is to live according to your faith when you are under pressure, when challenges arise, and even when life seems to be piling one hardship upon another on you. 

Those around you watch and take note of how you respond to life’s toughest times. They observe how you love and treat others. They judge your authenticity by whether you live up to your claims when the dark days descend. 

That doesn’t mean being positive just for appearance’s sake. It means drawing strength from deep within and, rather than wallowing in despair, taking one step at a time in positive directions. 

It took me years of depression and even suicide attempts before I understood that I was not God’s mistake but that God had a purpose for His “perfectly imperfect child.” You are a part of God’s plan too. And He calls each of us to be His hands and feet on earth.

What does it mean to be God’s hands and feet? What would that look like in your life today?
