Adjusting to life with a disability is not easy. 

Adjusting to life with a disability is not easy. Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada and one thing a disability can teach you is how much you need Jesus desperately! Just look at the life of Paul, who we know had a disability. In Philippians chapter 4 he writes, “I know what it is to be in need, and what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation.” And what was that "secret” He learned? Paul gives it away in the next breath. "I can do all things through Him who gives me strength." There's something commendable in that approach to life. Paul just couldn’t do life; he couldn’t do imprisonment; he couldn’t do stonings and beatings; it just wasn’t in him – but he could do all this through Christ. So today, if you find you can’t do life with all its hardships, desperately lean on Jesus… like Paul, need Him urgently. It’s the secret to all of life.
