When I first set my foot stool in the United States, it was before the era of GPS, there were many questions in mind. One of them was, “Will I ever be able to know this country and drive around by myself?” Like Sarah I was amazed of the new land and wonder about many things. Some years later, after my conversion to Christianity, I have come to some new understandings and hopes.
I have realized that despite of all the questions that may come across the mind, and despite of cultures and barriers, the essence of living a meaningful life anywhere is to have a deep faith in the Almighty God and a faithful relationship with Jesus Christ. Whether a native or an immigrant, all of us need guidance in life in wherever we find ourselves. As a father guides a little child, so we too, no matter our age, we need guidance. And it has been assured that our greatest guidance in life is Christ Jesus. For it is written, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me,” John 14:6
