[1: 1,912 of 10,000] WOEAIHF? Day 6 of 42

WOEAIHF is Rick Warren’s “What On Earth Am I Here For?” book.

Day 6: Life is a temporary assignment

My favorite line in this chapter is “Ask God to help you see life on Earth as he sees it.”

I’ve experienced feeling like an alien. I looked Chinese with my little eyes and yellow skin, I was born and raised in the Philippines, I now live in the Middle East, I have European names, I work in Communication not knowing to speak, read and write the language. I am completely out of place, huh? Yet I don’t get bitter to any of it, I accept my mix, more so fascinated by it. When this chapter talked about life on Earth is but temporary I believe it that we’re foreigners, a passerby. As Rick said, “We are preparing for something even better so never focus on temporary crowns.”

I have been confused and pressuring myself for great accomplishments, but this realization allows me to give my very best and then breathe and surrender.
