Thank you for sharing this remarkable event JoAnne.
How true, "Eyes Up", least you stumble and fall on
the negative things holding you back from success.

I will remember this, "Eyes Up," and walk in the
light of Jesus :)

god bless you,
love and hugs, Mom :)

What a great seminar! He was amazing! This evening was a youth group gathering from across Colorado. I guess they pick a different venue yearly and this year it was here in colorado springs. Nick is from Australia and does many appearances throughout the U.S and the world. To see him was at first heart stopping. Someone carried him from his wheelchair to the table that was set up as his "stage". At first your eyes can not believe what you are looking at. He told stories that were funny and the his facial expression were priceless. He told of times in school where the kids were so cruel. He told of his meeting of persons and they not knowing where to "shake". He completed 2 degrees and praises God the whole way! He told of the pain he had been in, the loneliness he felt, and the waste of life he seemed to be....and wanting to die. He told of the time he was in the bathtub and really wanted to die but all he heard was his heartbeat. His heartbeat was his reminder that Christ was with him. Christ has not left him. He strives to keep his eyes to the Word of God. As negative things were told his way ~ he could focus on those and become defeated ~ or keep his eyes on the Bible, on Christ, on his faith and be uplifted and strong. He was remarkable.

This brings to mind the many times I have heard "eyes up". Whether I was horseback riding or marching or exercising..eyes are always up. This prevents stumbling. Ironic how that is the same for our Christian walk. If our eyes are always "eyes up" then we can't stumble. When you watch your feet you walk into walls, don't go in any direct direction, or can't see obsticals arising before it is too late. Facing down we tend to concentrate on ourselves, our problems and negative thoughts. We lose our vision, balance and ability to see beyound ourselves. So with Nicks reminder that Christ is with us and we are perfect the way we are....I challenge you ~

You are so blessed that you can go and see him.
His challenges in life, his courage, his overcoming his

I would recommend that everyone go to this site for an
uplifting.
