Amazing Mom

26 Mar

If there is a will, there is a way.

But You are He who took me out of the womb; You made Me trust while on my mother’s breasts. (Psalm 22:9)

When is the last time you changed a newborn’s diaper with one hand tied behind your back? How about tying both hands? Can’t be done? Keep reading!

I had plans to share a different message today, but I was so inspired by today’s Daily Gram [] from Jerry Graham that I decided to bless you by sharing his message and video link.

As background, Jerry and Sharon send their Daily Gram to about 700 people 5 days a week. On average, about 140 people open these each day and 23% of those click through to their Link of the Day. That’s extremely high engagement for any bulk email, but especially for a daily one. With the ripple effect from email marketing, I suspect the good seeds that Jerry and Sharon sow daily are changing the lives of thousands if not ten of thousands of people. Amazing when you consider how little time is required.

Without further ado, here is Jerry’s message:

As you probably know by now, I’m a sucker for stories of “overcomers.” By overcomers, I mean those among us who refuse to let a little problem stop them from going after their dreams. I’ve featured a number of overcomers since we’ve started writing DGs, e.g., a dancing couple (one with only one arm and the other with only one leg), a motivational speaker without any arms or legs, a totally blind teen who has learned to navigate using clicking sounds he makes with his tongue, and a personal friend of ours who was born blind, but who went on to earn a law degree and become a concert pianist.

Well, Shelley Grieser, a budding coach from Denver, sent me two more incredible stories. I’ll share one today and the other in Friday’s Daily Gram. Today’s is about an incredibly awesome mother of a newborn who is handling all the usual motherhood responsibilities with excellence in spite of a handicap that would take most out of the game completely. You see, this amazing mom has no arms. What she does with her feet, would put many of us to shame.

There’s not much more I can say…the video clip seems to say it all. Heard any good excuses lately?
Prayer Power
Lord, we are so incredibly adaptive when we can keep our eyes on You and on our dream instead of feeling sorry for ourselves. Please remind us of some of these amazing stories the next time we complain…about anything.

    Nice looking blog! Looks like the blog bug has bitten you. It got Pastor Greg over at Grace Community Fellowship also. He loves it!
