Deaf and Blind but not a quitter

Helen Keller became deaf and blind before her second birthday. Despite this debilitating disability, she learned to read and write, and became the first deaf/blind person to gain a bachelor degree. She campaigned on issues of social welfare, women's suffrage, disability rights and impressed many with her force of personality.

Helen once wrote: "Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it. My optimism, then, does not rest on the absence of evil, but on a glad belief in the preponderance of good and a willing effort always to cooperate with the good, that it may prevail."

Helen could have easily chosen to use her disability as an excuse to achieve nothing and live on sympathy, but instead she chose to user her disability as a driving force to help others. She not only motivated herself to rise above this difficulty but in turn became an inspiration to many.

As Christians we can rise above difficulty too. We can stand strong and repeat the Apostle Paul's words in Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Whatever challenge you may be facing right now, take heart! There is nothing that the Holy Spirit cannot help us through or give us strength for. If this message is for your today my thoughts and prayers are with you!
