I didn’t see the movie Soul Surfer, but my friend lend me the book.

Bethany tells her true story of losing her arm in a shark attack while she was surfing, and how she came back to continue to pursue her dream as a professional surfer. Her story is very inspiration to remind us that no matter what you’ve lost, don’t give up on living. Have courage to overcome your fears, then discover and live out God’s plan for you.

She says, “Don’t put all your hope and faith into something that could suddenly and easily disappear. And honestly that’s almost anything. The only thing that will never go away, that will never fail you, is your faith in God…so I think this was God’s plan for me all along. I am not saying that God made the shark bite me. I think He knew it would happen, and He made a way for my life to be happy and meaningful in spite of it happening.” That’s good stuff, especially coming from a young girl.
