We all have dreams and desires. We want to feel like we’re making a difference in this world, contributing our gifts and talents. We want to know that God is using us to build his kingdom. We may even want to be a leader someday. But we also have challenges and distractions, problems and obstacles. And we’re often not sure how to get around them.
Most of the time it is the simple stuff that derails our discipleship: Low on time, low on money, losing track of what we were supposed to be doing. Our lives just don t seem in order. We’re like a wagon in the mud: we want to move forward, but we just keep getting stuck. Sometimes we re just spinning our wheels; other times if feels like the wheels are going to come right off. We feel overloaded and overwhelmed.
Making Life Count is for you who want to stop feeling caught in the rat race and know that your life is counting for something. You will discover that you can make time to do what you really want to do and feel like you re moving in a clear direction.
The goal of this book is to combine basic discipleship with basic life skills to help people achieve the kind of life they want.
