Am I Okay God? Devotionals from the Seventh Dimension

By Lorilyn Roberts

Excerpt

 

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:

 

*~*~*~*~*~*

From Seventh Dimension – The Door, a Young Adult Christian Fantasy:
“People journey to the seventh dimension when something happens that creates a longing—so great that nothing else can fill it, except the king himself.”
—Astella, chapter thirty-seven.”

*~*~*~*~*~*

 

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 HolySpirit 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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Lorilyn Roberts graduated magna cum laude from the University of Alabama in 1991. Her studies included spending two weeks in Israel at the start of the Gulf War and touring England, Australia, New Zealand, and several countries in Europe. She later attended the Institute of Children’s Literature and earned her Master of Arts in Creative Writing from Perelandra College.

Roberts says, “If we fail to teach our children how to live out their Christian faith practically, we will have lost an opportunity to impact the world for good. It only takes one generation to forget the past. As JRR Tolkien said, ‘There is some good in this world and it’s worth fighting for.’”
