"The Luckiest Man Alive" on God: "I think he's continually challenging me to trust Him"

Thursday night, “Piers Morgan Live” invited the luckiest (or unluckiest, depending on how you look at it) man in the world on air to discuss his most recent (mis)fortune. Erik Norrie has been struck by lightning, bitten by a rattlesnake, beaten up by monkeys, and most recently, attacked by a shark.

While recovering in the Tampa Medical Center, Norrie, a religious man, explained why he believes that God doesn’t have it out for him:

“I think he's continually challenging me to trust Him. Which is what I believe that we all need to do through hard times, through good times, through bad times, it's important to always trust God.”

His wife, Spryng, has a sense of humor about Erik’s series of run-ins with danger:

“Well, it's an adventuresome marriage ... but the shark bite was quite a scare, that's for sure.”

As it turns out, Spryng had locked her husband in a monkey cage as a joke before he was attacked. But rather than call for help, she took pictures!

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with the "Luckiest Man Alive," and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    Erik Norrie story is an inspiration of real life miracles. He was attacked by a shark, large chunk missing from his leg and lots of blood loss and several surgeries. He is thankful for his friends praying and the healing that has already taken place. He is smiling happy with peace and giving the Jesus Christ all the glory. What would you be doing if you were in the hospital in this situation? Do you know where you would go if you were to die today? Erik Norrie will be smiling in heaven, praise God

    Hmm, I guess some people need this infantile "god" nonsense in lieu of rational thinking.

    Pierce, the reason me and you dont get bit by sharks or struck by lightning is. We don't swim with sharks or go outside in thunderstorms.

    Erik Norrie`s story i sa true testimony of God`s power. But you see in life there are always people criticizing everything from humans to God. Hell is opn for the unbelievers but if you are a good critic and a good philosopher then a liitle research
    How poissonus is a rattle snake
    How many volts is lightning
    What is the weight of a monkey`s fist then do the maths because it was not just a monkey
    What are the statistics that is how many people have survived a shark attack
    I think at the end of day you will then understand this is more than the boundaries of the Earth. There is a force.
