A disadvantage can be turned into an advantage when our heart and motives are right.

A disability can be turned into an ability when you and it are given to the Lord. A disadvantage can be turned into an advantage... the Lord. There is not one storm that is too big for God. There's not one that you are going through believer, where God's glory will not be revealed in some way if you persist onward in faith. There's not one time of suffering you go through where you won't see good if you just hang on to Christ. So look to and cling to Him! 

i.e., Joni Eareckson Tada and Nick Vujicic (Nick jokes that his foot looks like a chicken drumstick). They both have leveraged their pain and struggles into effective efforts to glorify the Lord and for spreading His Gospel. God said to the Apostle Paul said, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9
“So that the crowd wondered, when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled healthy, the lame walking, and the blind seeing. And they glorified the God of Israel.” Matthew 15:31
See what happened with Jonathan, the son of Saul’s son Mephibosheth. Yeah, Jonathan had a “son who was crippled in his feet. He was five years old when the news about Saul and Jonathan came from Jezreel, and his nurse took him up and fled, and as she fled in her haste, he fell and became lame. And his name was Mephibosheth.” 2 Samuel 4:4. He ate daily with the king -- and you and I have a King who is far more kind that that.
