Everyone Has Something They Can Do

I was watching the news tonight and they had the story of a 14-year-old boy who has invented a new sport, while confined to a wheelchair.  Aaron Fotheringham from Las Vegas does stunts, just like a skateboarder would do, from the confines of his wheelchair.  I was fascinated by what I saw and just had to share it with you.  You can read the entire story here.

It reminded me of what the Lord told Gideon when Gideon objected to God's directive that he, Gideon, would defeat the Midianites:   "The Lord turned to him and said, "Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian's hand. Am I not sending you?" (Judges 6:14).

What strength do you have to do something?  Aaron has strength to perform stunts in a wheelchair, thus encouraging other children in wheelchairs.  If he can do that, what can you do -- not next year, but now?

Here is a picture of Aaron doing his thing:
