"Today's Unthinkable Is Tomorrow's Reality"

Double amputee Iron Man, Scott Rigsby.


The title of this blog comes from a quote said by Scott Rigsby, a Christian who feels his push to overcome his life changing accident as a teen, comes directly from God. He said those words while appearing as a guest speaker on the DayStar Network's "Hour of Power" which is taped at the Crystal Cathedral.

He was only 18 when he was in a car accident that resulted in the loss of both of his legs. He went through numerous surgeries, and spent many years suffering from depression as a result. Over 20 years later, in 2005, he hit a low point, asking God to give him purpose. Two weeks later, he was given it. Watch the news report of his story below:




Through his trials, Rigsby, with the grace of God, persevered, and has now broken world records and inspired thousands. He recounts his story in the book "Unthinkable".

His story reminds me of St. Paul's words in Romans 5:

"Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. 3Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us."
