Why Here

Why Here
September 21, 2019

I have had the impression for a long time that people in this desert just do not care. This morning’s situation gave further evidence to that. Off in the nearby distance, a car was driving at a very high speed, and it struck another car with a very loud impact. It was so bad that I could smell something burning. I was a little bit surprised at the situation, and cars on the freeway just continued to drive by like nothing happened, and I thought to myself, this is a residential area and surely someone saw or heard the accident and someone will call someone for help. Ten minutes went by and no one came to help. Finally, with much hesitation I decided to call the police to report the situation. I have no idea what happened to the person in the accident, but a range of emotions came over me. One thought that I have been having is that no one in place seems to care at all about other people. I grow more and more distant from this city and just do not know what to do about that.

28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)

I have been meditating on this verse recently, and it is not a random thing that I am here in this place, even for this moment, even though on most days I do not like it here. I still have no idea what is the purpose that I am here, but I continue to pray for understanding.


Father in Heaven, I really do not know why I am here in this place where it seems like no one cares. I feel like I am personally growing more selfish and distant from everyone and this is not a good feeling. Please help me to find my purpose here and see that You are God, and that You are good.
