How Not To Waste Your Life

How Not To Waste Your Life





John Piper wrote a book titled Don’t Waste Your Life. It’s one of my favorites and I would encourage you to read it. But I want to take it a step further. Think about these things:




*~*~*~*~*~*


Admonish Yourself

Don’t waste your life—work hard, train like an Olympian—and find your purpose in Jesus Christ.

Don’t waste your education—enrich your mind with the knowledge of God’s creation.

Don’t waste your talents—glorify God with your creativity—make kids laugh, dancers dance, and praise God, the Creator.

Don’t waste your health—you only get one body, one mind, and one spirit.

Don’t waste your time—you can only spend your time once. Spend it on activities that will draw you near to God.

Don’t waste your opportunity to do great things—Jesus died for you. Give him your best. He gave you his life.

Don’t waste your money—many in the world need food and medicine. World Vision, Wycliffe, and Samaritan’s Purse are among my favorite charities.

Don’t waste your love—the world never has enough. Love until you grow weary and go to bed exhausted. The Holy Spirit will renew your strength and passion. Your tank will never run dry.

Don’t waste your mind—it’s too precious. Think about whatever is beautiful, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, and whatever is lovely. Renew your mind with the daily reading of God’s word. God’s Hall of Fame is filled with martyrs who died so you could own a Bible.

Don’t waste this moment—if you haven’t done it, accept Jesus into your heart. Once you receive his salvation, you will be filled with the Holy Spirit. He will help you to live a godly life. You may not have tomorrow. Yesterday is gone. Seize this moment—this nanosecond, and make a decision to follow Christ.

Once you have committed your life to Jesus, visit some churches and find one that meets your spiritual needs. You can also do a Google search to locate some places of worship near you.

Jesus is coming back again. He wants to receive you into his kingdom. An inheritance awaits you. In heaven, moths don’t eat your dreams, burglars don’t steal your wealth, and diseases don’t rob you of life.

Don’t waste your salvation—bring others into the kingdom. Be a witness so that others can hear the truth. Remember, eternity lasts a very, very, very long time.

Children of Dreams - Revisiting Nepal Twenty Years Later and Taking Books to Orphans Through Child Hope International
Dreams_3D_Bcopy.jpg

This inspirational work of nonfiction follows a woman who turns her own shattered dreams into life-changing hope, relying on God's redemptive love to overcome impossible odds and adopt two destitute children from one of the world's most remote regions.

I (Lorilyn Roberts) will will be traveling to Nepal soon to take books to orphans - children who have been rescued and adopted into Nepali homes sponsored by Child Hope International.

Please consider making a donation of $34.95 to help defray the costs. In return I will send you a signed copy of my best-selling memoir Children of Dreams.  
 
Link to donate: 
For the next three weeks, I will be publishing on my blog my adoption memoir, to encourage you to pray for Joy and me, for travel mercies, and for you to "taste" the country and experience what I felt when I was there before. God gave me my first of two "Children of Dreams" twenty years ago. I arrived home from Nepal on Mother's Day, May 8, 1994, with Manisha Hope.

The costs will be around $3,500 for Joy and me to travel and stay six days. Our time will be spent helping many of the kids with English and reading. About $1,500 has been donated so far. I am hoping more people will contribute toward the trip so I don't have to spend the next several months paying off my credit card when I return. 

Imagine what the possibilities are with the two hundred plus Christian books we are taking (as well as two Kindles a member of the John 3:16 Marketing Network donated). These children are among the few, particularly the girls, to receive an education in Nepal. They are the future leaders, the future teachers, doctors, and nurses. Over two hundred abandoned children have been adopted in-country by Nepali families sponsored by Child Hope International. Today many are in college. One orphan sponsored by Child Hope International is now in medical school. 

Please consider making a donation. And I would especially appreciate your prayers. 
 
 
If you would enjoy reading Children of Dreams as an ebook, in celebration of the trip, I'm offering a free coupon through Smashwords for the length of time Joy and I will be in Nepal. Joy is my younger daughter who I adopted from Vietnam. Manisha, who is 23, will be staying home and taking care of all of our animals. 

Here is the information to get your free copy of Children of Dreams in Nook or to read online. It is also available in Kindle on Amazon by clicking here.

Promotional price: $0.00
Coupon Code: XT77R
Expires: October 29, 2014

From James 1:27:  Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
