The Bumblebee is a very interesting insect. Scientifically it should not be able to fly. However, nobody has told it that it can not fly. It has simply watched other species of bees fly and has simply done the same.
Like the bumblebee, I believe that every person is able to do whatever it is they would love regardless of their disability. It might take longer but then again, on whose timing or by whose standard is longer?
More than enough ‘able-bodied’ people have embarked on different projects but have not necessarily finished it. So what makes any disabled person different.
This is not to say disabled people should go about embarking on projects and not finish them, but that everyone – disabled or not has the right to embark on whatever their hearts desire. You never know what you are capable of, and sometimes you will never know until you start. Like an old adage says ‘the journey of a thousand miles starts with one step.’
Disabled But Enabled is all about being a bumble bee. Refusing to believe that because of our disabilities, I or anybody else is unable to do anything one’s heart is set on, no matter how simple or complex the thing can be. After all, God clearly says I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.
