Want to know the story behind my wallpaper’s message?
I recently attended a small journaling workshop. First we were given writing prompts, and then time to write. After each one, we shared our thoughts.
The story was told of a man who lives outside the U.S., but comes here often for business. Everywhere he goes, he is asked, “Why are you here?” and “How long are you staying?”
The question posed to us was, “Why are you here?”
I knew my answer—the answer—immediately, and it was a brief one. Because we were expected to write, however, I expounded upon it, always knowing what would be written in summary at the end.
Here is what I wrote:
Why am I here?
To raise my family as well as I can; to be a good wife; to inspire others; to teach; to learn; to serve; to create; to be a good friend; to support my family; to encourage; to be a light
TO GLORIFY GOD
I believe that our purpose is to glorify God, and all of the other things listed above it are ways to actively make it happen. If I strive to do my best in those areas, I hope to glorify God in the effort.
The older man—who said he had become introspective on this subject—and I were the only ones who didn’t struggle with answering the question. The other two younger women felt that it was open to personal interpretation, something that was different for each person and we had to figure it out on our own.
What do you think? Why do you think you are here?Leave a Comment
