Radio Interview with Nick Vujicic and Day #2 of Overflowing Joy

Greetings Ladies, Before posting those very powerful Bible verses from Day #2 of the “Overflowing Joy” ladies event I’d like to share with you a radio interview I did with Nick Vujicic of Life Without Limbs Ministry. Nick has a very powerful ministry and is used to build God’s Kingdom as one of the ‘champions for the brokenhearted’ as he’s lived his entire life without arms and legs – and yet God uses him mightily for Kingdom purposes.

I was ecstatic when I heard Nick was coming to New York several years ago and I was blessed to interview him for his new book to our Christian radio listening audience in the Albany-Schenectady-Troy media markets. But I’m not posting this for me – I’m posting for you as inspiration and encouragement from a very special person.

The magic of radio is the ability to record long-form interviews (with and without my many mistakes) and later splice everything for intros, promos, commercials and the like – the sky’s the limit really – okay technically, the FCC is the limit but I’m speaking only of the creative process. So here’s an oldie-but-a-goodie from a very special person who understands brokenness – a man who literally lives life without any arms or legs. Kindly excuse me sounding ‘over the top’ – it’s real – and to me – and to many of our listeners, Nick is truly a gift to us all. I pray this spurs you into praying for and possibly supporting this ministry.

Ladies, thank you for understanding I cannot post all verses in full here – there’s simply too many and you’d be scrolling forever. Kindly see the links and I’ll do my best to feature them in upcoming articles (God willing).
Blessings, Mary Budesheim

Today’s System Can’t Handle Righteous People Founded Upon Godly Wisdom

Sadly, the system now cannot handle intelligent, bright children rooted in Godly wisdom ready to take-on the world. Those children grow into ungovernable adults, entrepreneurs and risk takers grounded in their knowledge of who they are in relation to God’s Word and their enormous value to God – regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, disability or any other personal characteristic.

Did You Know God Loves to Showcase His Mercy?

How would we live our lives if we truly understood that our purpose is to love Him and to love His reflection in our neighbors? The truth is we are chosen, loved, welcomed, counted holy and blameless because of what Christ accomplished on the cross for us. Jesus said “It is finished” (John 19:30) and He alone paid the price for us to be received by His Father in eternity.

Christians, Can We Stop Romanticizing Marriage & Scriptures Already?

Don’t get me wrong, I believe healthy marriages are the foundation to any flourishing society and I’m in no way minimizing or chastising marriage or the need for children and families. I’m simply advocating for realism in our Christian literature and daily devotionals targeted towards women – especially as it relates to the relationship between Christ as the bridegroom and the church as the bride. It's like the Easter Bunny to Christ’s Resurrection or Santa Clause to the Birth of Christ - and it's the exact reason I prefer Oswald Chambers over others like Max Lucado.
