There comes a time in our life that we get exhausted by all the things that are happening in our life. All the bad things happen at once, and it seems that we did something bad to be punished. We search for the answer to have a happy and beautiful life, but despite living a carefully planned life, we always end up disappointed. We don’t know what to do and where to go. However, we must not lose hope because we have someone who will comfort us. Furthermore, we are certain that life here on earth is not permanent, we will be going somewhere promising.

About the Song
“I Can’t Find It Here” is a song of a man trying to find his way home in this world that is always letting him down. He clings and asks the Lord to lead him home. He wants to be with God than to stay here on earth which only brings sadness and pain. Like the narrator of the song we all feel the same pain and failure in life, but we must also be like him. We must hold on to the Lord and ask Him to lead us home. Our life here on earth is not permanent because our home is in heaven. Our home is in God’s hand.
