AUDIO FILE: “Say ‘Bully” to Your Bullies

             The day that President Theodore Roosevelt died he had no idea that he was seriously ill.

Hi, I’m Nick Vujicic at Life Without Limbs dot org.

Right up until the end of his life, Teddy Roosevelt was curious about the world and full of plans for the future. When visitors questioned his failing health, his reply was a vigorous “Bully!

I was fascinated to read about this American statesman, author, explorer, soldier, naturalist, and reformer. He was so strong and positive … right up to the very end. And yet as a child, Teddy was weak and sickly. Once when his doting mother dressed him in a sailor suit …. (what was she thinking?) … the other boys taunted him, calling him a “dude.” Trust me …back in the 1800s that word did not mean “cool guy!”

Teddy fought back … astonishing everyone by teaching himself to ride, swim, climb and hunt. He became strong in body and spirit. Even when he became crippled at the age of 39, he refused to let his disability keep the adult bullies from running him out of the Oval Office.

While I have no plans to run for President … no really … I do know how liberating it is to refuse to be defined by what you don’t have or can’t do. Today, if you’re being bullied or marginalized, lean on Jesus. The Son of Man knew what it was like to be despised and rejected … and He was perfect! Rejection is never easy but the Bible tells us that those who “know their God will be strong and do mighty exploits!”
