Phenomenal Cast Of Characters

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. Psalm 139:13
One of my all time favorite movies is Frank Capra's 1947 classic film 'It's a Wonderful Life' shown primarily during the Christmas season. In my opinion everyone should watch it at least once. I have probably seen it 100 times. A famous line from the movie spoken by Clarence Oddbody the guardian angel of the late actor Jimmy Stewart's character George Bailey, "Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?" Stewart's character wanted to commit suicide after a financial crisis but Clarence saved him and let him see his life as if he wasn't born. 
Every person has a value,worth, and a reason for being here. You can probably reflect on your life and remember key people who influenced you. Parents, teachers, friends, even strangers. Our life story is filled with an amazing 'cast of characters'. You probably also have been instrumental in someone's life whether you realize it or not. 
Don't ever catch yourself in a pity party and wishing you weren't here because God had a reason for you being born. Only the enemy wants to confuse you and make you feel worthless. God is a God of life and purpose and you are part of his plan. 
PRAYER: There have been times I have allowed my mind to wander and threw myself a pity party. No guests came. I know you have a reason for me and can orchestrate good in my life. Use me in the lives of others too. In Jesus' name. Amen.
