While in Los Angeles recently, I was allowed to “test drive” a new type of virtual reality game at Digital Domain, which creates holograms and other visual effects for television and movies, including Titanic, Iron Man 3, the Transformers series, Ender’s Game and more than 100 other movies.

When I put on the virtual reality headset, I entered an entirely new world. I was stunned at how realistic the game’s graphics seemed initially. Then my mind was blown when I looked down and, for the first time in my life, I saw that I had arms and legs!

It was crazy! I knew that it was just part of the virtual reality game, of course, but my heart nearly sprang from my chest. This was my “avatar,” a virtual version of me and thanks to the advanced technology, it felt for a moment like my dreams of miraculously receiving the arms and legs I lacked at birth had really happened.

Even though I am now in my 33rd year of living without limbs, I still hold onto my hope for a miracle one day. Many people have flying dreams, and I’ve had them as well, but I also have running dreams. I would love to know what it feels like to run on the soccer field, or through the woods. Most people take that experience for granted, but for me it would be a miracle.

I do still keep a pair of shoes in my closet just in case God ever gives me the miracle of limbs, but the truth is that I’ve benefited from many miracles in my life so far. First of all, there is the miracle of discovering God’s purpose for my life. As you may know during my elementary school years I despaired over the many “normal” things I could not do like other kids. I worried also that I’d never find a woman who would marry me and have a family with me. I grew depressed and, one day, I made an attempt at suicide in the bathtub, but the thought of burdening my parents with my suicide made me abandon that plan and my self-pity.

Over time, I saw that I could still have a fulfilling life if I focused on helping others rather than helping myself. A few years later, I saw the Bible story about the blind man whom Jesus said God had created for a purpose—so that others might come to believe in Him after Jesus gave the blind man the miracle of sight. After thinking about that Bible story, I realized that God had a purpose for me too, and that my lack of limbs somehow fit into His plan, even though I did not know what it was. When I came out of my shell and reached out to other people as a speaker and evangelist, they embraced me, and thanked me for inspiring them.

Some said I’d changed their lives, and they in turn changed mine. Certainly that is a miracle, don’t you think?
