Unstoppable: The Incredible Power of Faith in Action - eBook
Throughout the book, Nick, who was born without limbs, gives us this tremendous message. You must put your faith into action. Believe God and act upon it!
One of the key components to putting our faith into action is surrender to our all powerful God.
Nick's definition of surrender is intriguing. Surrender means letting go and believing in God's power to do what we cannot. In a play on word, he says, put the word GO in front of DISABLED and you have the phrase GOD IS ABLED.
Though we have limitations. God has none. Read this book and prepare to be inspired!

There is just so much crammed into this small-ish paperback I could never completely cover it all so I'll just touch on a few things.
The term "faith in action" sums up the beautiful lesson in the first section of the book. It's a resounding theme to the end as well. "Why me?" Come on, you know you've said that before. I know I have! My disability isn't seen on the outside. You wouldn't know if I didn't tell you but it's crippled my life at times. Those are the times I have cried out to God, asking "why me?". Why NOT me? What good has it done for my life? How can I put that ability into it and use it, allow God to show me the purpose? Man, I'm just so excited about the new revelations that have come to me through obedience last Sunday and now, reading this book.

Another great book by Nick
This is the second book by Nick Vujicic that I have read. I have really enjoyed both books. This book picks up where the last book left off, and deals with many hot topics for today, bullying, relationship issues, self-destructive thoughts and emotions, personal crises, career and job challenges, health and disability concerns, imbalances we may have in our bodies, etc., as well as feeling out of control.
He tells stories from both his own life, as well as stories from people that he has met. I loved hearing the story how he met his beautiful wife, and their love story, their ups and their downs in their relationship. In the center of the book are pictures of Nick and various places of ministry, people he has ministered to, as well as a wedding picture of Nick and Kanae.
He is very honest in his struggles, and his feelings, and it makes him more relatable. He also shares insights, and shows how to handle various problems that we may encounter.
I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review. The opinions are all my own. :)

Living his faith with action...
Born without limbs, Nick Vujicic lives out his faith with action. He understands God has a plan for all of usÃ¢ÂÂ¦just the way we are. In his life, Nick has encountered many obstacles (bullying, suicide, depression, rejection) yet lives a ridicously good life (in his own words). In this book, Nick shares his personal stories as well as others while giving encouragement, inspiration, reassurance and confidence to everyone through GodÃ¢ÂÂs love for us.
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Having heard of Nick Vujicic as an inspirational speaker, I was interested in reading his current book. Through humor and heartache, Nick shares his own struggles and triumphs in the hopes of proclaiming and helping others see their own worth as well as impact on the world. He is literally Ã¢ÂÂunstoppableÃ¢ÂÂ when acting on his faith, having done more, shared more and conquered more than most people without limits. I found Nick to be quite an exampleÃ¢ÂÂ¦taking away any excuse not to put faith into action, making anyone unstoppable in the process as well.
4.5 (out of 5) pennies
