“I will sing to the LORD as long as I live. I will praise my God to my last breath!” (Psalms 104:33 NLT)
George Dennehy was born without arms, but he plays guitar like a pro. How? The 18-year-old from Ashland, Virginia uses his feet! The gifted teen told in an interview that he eats, types and washes his hair with his feet, and he says he’s primarily right-footed. He also said, “I want it [music] to be my career. I have the opportunity to speak/play at different events or churches, you name it! I’m hoping big things will happen.”
And according to the Huffington Post, Dennehy isn’t the only teen who hasn’t let physical challenges stop him from achieving his dreams. Fourteen-year-old athlete Coleman Shannon, whose right arm ends at his elbow, recently pitched a no-hitter against his neighboring Little League team. And in 2010, armless piano player Liu Wei became a hit on “China’s Got Talent” and achieved Internet fame.
We tend to be a society and people who are afraid to live or try because of failure, yet we are surrounded every day by those who take chances because they have to just to survive. Be one that achieves life instead of slumping towards existence! Live the vibrant life God gives! You are loved without excuse!
