The Man Without a Leg


I was moping. Discouraged. Down. Frustrated. Stressed. Crying out to God day and night for an answer regarding something to which I believe He had called me. No answer. No reply. Just more crying out. In the midst of it all, the Lord Jesus Christ had me cross paths for just minutes with a man without a leg.

On crutches. Just one leg. Not having the easiest time getting around. The heat did not help I am sure. Two things stood out more than anything. His JOY. And that he and I went back and forth at each other with Bible verses for the next few minutes until we parted ways.

By the finish of our short time of crossing paths, I was thrilled to have my focus back on God and the Bible. And one Bible verse of all we both quoted struck me more than any other.

JOYFULLY, the man quoted:

“This is the day the LORD has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalms 118:24 NKJV
